Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
Hello, my friends! I hope you had a Happy New Year. We were highly productive around the coop this weekend. As I revealed in a previous post, my sweet husband agreed to let me convert our living room into my studio. I've been very nervous about the conversion since this is the room you see first (straight ahead) as you enter our front door. We decided to wait and do this when we knew we could put the whole room together at one time. It is not a great spot in our house to leave in transition. So, after saving and accumulating things in storage, this was the weekend! We put away the Christmas decor, donated some furniture and started unpacking! Forgive these pictures please - no lights in this room yet and took these very early before work.
This room has some great bones now! Still in transition and in need of decorating but good enough for now.
I can't wait to fill the shelves with my vintage supplies and small collections to warm it up. I have a closet full of printer's drawers, glass jars, silver platters, large spools....you name it, that I have been anxious to display and use. This rooster weathervane is a great example! Isn't he cute? I just need to paint him a nice rusty brown so you can see him with these toasted almond walls.
My vintage cameras have been scattered all over the house previously, but I think they will look great here grouped together. I'm sure I'll add some books or lace for them to perch on at some point. Do you think that is a good idea? Maybe some vintage paper in the back? I'd love to hear your ideas. I really just stuck them in here last night before going to bed. It was a long day of moving and assembling furniture. No time to feather this nest yet!
I'm looking forward to decorating and organizing. I just wanted to give you a glimpse of the transformation. More to come! I will be changing things on the walls and replacing the console table on the right. You'll see! I've been searching blogs and checking out studios for ideas. I have some favorites and will share them with you this week. Great eye candy and certainly some terrific ideas to stash away. Have a great week! Linking up to Transformation Thursday.
