One of the things I have been working on all summer is my work studio.
We carved out a little portion of the new barn for both my husband and I to have a little work space.
My husbands - to work on farm things, trucks, cars, tractors, machines and whatever else he does over there.
Mine - to create, paint, think, glitter, stamp, draw, dream, twirl up, plan, decoupage, and whatever else I can think of doing over here!
I love my work space!

My husband is putting heat in the barn this week so we will be able to work over there all winter!
I love this iron welding table.  I found it at a local flea market.  It is soooooo heavy.  
It almost killed my husband when we loaded it on the truck (literally- it fell on him when we loaded it)
It is perfect for anything that we do.  I can solder, paint, glue....
We both love it.  He tried to talk me into giving it to him for his side of the way!
 My paint cart.  It keeps everything I need handy...
I love drawers!  
I found this piece at a flea market.  It was from a nearby schools Home Ec department.  
The drawers still had needles in them.  I added the file cards so I knew what was where.  
I love this piece.  The shelves are filled with my paper collection.  I faced out some of my favorites.
These shelves are filled with glitter, metal stamps, bits and baubles and jewelry making supplies.
I found these strange display racks at a flea market.  They were purple.  
I spray painted them black.  They make the perfect ribbon holders.

My family will be so happy to get rid of all my stuff that I continually drag over to the house when I work on all my projects!


  1. a lot of creating can happen in that space, love it!

  2. wow your space is amazing....thanks for sharing


  3. I know you probably don't want to give up all your sources...but WHAT flea market are you finding these great pieces of furniture??? I am a collage artist & would LOVE to find an organizer like the Home Ec pc. of yours! What a GR8 workspace - I love it!

    1. Hi Melissa! I get my things all over. Craigslist, Springfield, Scotts, yardsales, auctions.
      The big Home Ec piece I got at Springfield. I love it! It holds so much stuff and helps tidy up my space! I have an obsession with drawered pieces!

  4. Hi, I was wondering where the closest source of Annie Sloan paint is to Marysville? I'm hoping to paint my kitchen cabinets with it.

    1. Hi Jess, I am not sure where the closest source would be, I know there are quite a few places, but I have always bought mine from Michelle at Dilucca design.
      She's wonderful and gets the paint out right away - comes right to your door!
      Good luck!

  5. I'd like to invite you to join me at the Clever Chicks Blog Hop this week!

    I hope to see you there!
