My Studio - My Favorite Place to Be

Looking Gooooooood

Well we are 80% of the way complete in the renovations of my home studio. All that needs to be done is painting the entire area, putting down new floor and adding new curtains for the window and all those messy areas that I don't want people to see.

Here is a pic of my new shelf which doubles as a showcase of new things that I have made or things that were created that I just had to display. The shelf, lights, desk and smaller credenza all from IKEA. The only thing I hate are those cords so I have to come up with a way to hide all that clutter.

Don't you just love the floor LOL, yesterday as my wonderful husband put up the shelf I decided that the yukky, gold, shag carpet had to go and discovered that the previous owners were to lazy to put that cheap tile everywhere, go figure I must say that it is still way better than that old carpet.

This is my new credenza, it is from IKEA part of the EFFEKTIV collection, which I have 3 additional pieces of. You can't see them in these shots because that area is really messy and well I don't want to look like a total slob.

This is the beautiful shelf that my husband put up for me on V-Day, I think V-Day was really a DYI day, because we got so much done. I love when I have a look or idea in my head and it actual works. This floating shelf, also from IKEA called LACK system works perfect for:

  • holding lights also from IKEA INREDA
  • displaying my favorite works of art

This is my favorite Teddy Bear. When my husband and I got married all the children in the wedding party had one of these at there place setting. They were such a great hit and of course I had to get one for myself, the flower is my husbands boutonniere from our wedding.

Hope you like what you have seen so far, more to come!

Very nice,Joann! To hide cords, one option is to get something called "Cord Channel", available in all different sizes from Home Depot. They are paintable, too.

Have fun in your new studio!
