My Studio

Every time I clean up my studio, I feel like I should celebrate by throwing a party or at the least do a little happy dance. It feels so good to start with a clean slate before launching into the next project. Just for fun, I’m sharing how my studio looks right now. If you’re new to the site, I hope you will come back and visit often.

Little work space in the studio.

 

My studio is bright and cheerful. It’s the place I go to when I want to reflect, design, experiment and basically make a big mess. It’s also full of projects such as the curvy chair slipcover behind the desk.

 

Fun work table with casters.

 

Slipcover love seat is perfect for this small space.

 

The slipcovered love seat positioned in front of the desk forms a quaint conversation area and doesn’t take up much space. I still have enough room left over to paint or reupholster furniture.

The love seat is not just for looks. I actually use it quite a bit and every once in a while find the dogs lounging on it. They have such good taste, or maybe it’s the comfortable pillows they like. I can’t decide.

 

This studio has a love seat and ottoman.

 

Organizing A Studio

The work space consists of a desk, two filing cabinets, a wire mesh storage table and a shelf tower. I can say without a doubt creating a studio and work space was one of my best decisions, and it certainly keeps my projects from taking over other rooms.

 

Gallery wall ideas with a shelf.

 

Gallery Wall

I love sitting at this desk with my gallery wall on one side and the inspiration board on the other. You might say my studio evolves as I do.

The handy white ledges on the gallery wall hold books, trinkets and art. I’m thinking about adding another row, but I’m still in no rush to fill the wall. My idea of collecting is to find pieces that have special meanings I can relate to, not just to fill space.

 

Love the variety on the gallery wall.

 

One new addition to the gallery wall is the ticking striped antler mount. It was hanging on a wall downstairs looking neglected, until I decided to repaint the wood plaque and cover the leather with fabric. I’m not sure the husband has noticed yet, but I’m sure he would approve.

 

Handy storage tower holds lots of bins for organizing supplies.

How To Find A Space Just For You

Sometimes it’s not easy carving out a space for yourself, but if this is something you’re longing for, look around your home for a potential spot.  A few things to consider…

  • Convert a closet or entertainment armoire
  • A desk that can serve double duty
  • The corner of the laundry room
  • Work bench in the garage
  • Space under the stairs
  • Sunroom
  • Spare bedroom

 

Simple art on clip boards is easily changed out.

 

Once you claim your spot, make it an inspirational space.

Thanks for letting me share my studio with you today.  Hope to see you again soon!

Cheers!

    I not only love this “your” room, but adore the painting of the Highland cow. I’ve a sketch of one in our guest bedroom. They are beautiful animals! Thanks for the walk-thru.

    • Michelle Meyer says:

      I photographed the Highland cow on a special trip to Scotland. They are so beautiful up close! So happy you stopped by today. 🙂

    Really fun room, Michelle! I was going to say how much I loved your Highland cow and I’m seeing your reply to Margaret above. How fun that you actually photographed him on your trip to Scotland!!! Another place on my bucket list… Lol! There are a few that I’ve seen here in Texas plus there are also Belted Galloway cattle. You’ll love them, too. They look like Oreo cookie cows!

    Beautiful room and I did pin via Tailwind to my Ethereal Craftrooms board and a couple of others for you,
    Barb <3

    • Michelle Meyer says:

      Thanks so much Barb! I hope you will be able to go to Scotland, so much to see, experience and photograph! 🙂

    Michelle, you have such a wonderful creative space. I like how light and bright it is with little pops of color here and there. We have a fourth bedroom in which I’m considering doing something like this. Do you find that you do more crafty things having this space?

    • Michelle Meyer says:

      Hi Stacey, I love having my own space so I can spread out projects and a place to stow supplies. I’m thinking about updating a linen closet so I can organize tools. More on that to come. 😉
