Last week was a busy and productive one for me. Even though I had a sore, swollen, bruised dog~bitten finger wrapped up and useless, I still managed to transform an upstairs room into a
Shabby Chic Studio
just for me.
So how about a little look around?
My desk no longer has to sit in my dining room.
I found this wicker hamper at the thrift store a couple of years ago.
It provides perfect storage for skeins of yarn.
Hubby is happy ~ it no longer lives in his downstairs office.
I love the curtains that are sprinkled all over with tiny pink roses.
I added a favorite rose covered towel and another tea towel with a hand crocheted lace edging then topped them off with a pretty pink doily.
I tried this picture from every angle at different times of day but the sun shining in made it challenging.
Sitting under the window is a little wooden sewing table I inherited from Scott's Great Aunt years ago. I painted it white a long, long time ago.
Then, of course, I had to add a rose.
I was tickled to find the green rug on sale at KMart a few days ago.
It's a tiny bit darker than the walls.
And this old floor leans more heavily towards the "shabby" side of things than it does the "chic".
So a bit of cover up is a good idea!
This chest of drawers was given to me by an old friend many years ago when she was moving and no longer needed it. Once again, I just had to paint it white and embellish it with roses.
One of my favorite rockers found its way into the corner. Although it's not white, I do love it. It is solid oak and made by the Amish. I did put a nice comfy white rose covered cushion on it at least :)
Since I don't really need to close the door I thought this would be the perfect place to hang this lovely panel of Filet Crochet.
It fits beautifully.
Isn't it gorgeous?
I bought it at a garage sale a few summer's ago for ...
The lady said her Mother ~ In ~ Law made it many years ago and she no longer wanted it.
The dear old lady is long gone.
I cannot imagine letting go of such a treasure.
I bought three of them that day.
All for a dollar a piece.
You know what they say
One Lady's junk is ~
Another Lady's Treasure.
Now I really must get caught up on all of your lovely blogs. So sorry I have been away for so many days. I have missed all of your goings on!
