studio...at last!

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 workshop....no 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. 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!
      Thanks!

  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!
