Nothing fancy. Simple necessities. I painted one wall with chalkboard paint to jot down ideas for whatever project I am working on. Right now it is this ornate wing chair project.
I want the room to feel like a bit like a flower shop. Flowers inspire me. They make me happy. I printed out old botanical drawings and simply taped them to the wall. I am sure this wall will be constantly changing with new inspirations.
I got this gorgeous work table with a metal surface at my favorite vintage shop called The Trading Post. I just love the original patina. I spent many hours looking through pinterest for inspirations for the work room. I saw loads of beautifully decorated and neatly organized work rooms but what attracted me the most were rooms with characters.
I also got this vintage bookcase with the glass door at the Trading Post. I am loving this dark wood look...to paint or not to paint...that is always the question.
The girls helped me move things around. By that I mean they wanted me to take pictures of them.
This picture of Aurora really crack me up because this is the phase we are going through right now. You know "the face" phase. Of course Lily is the perfect model.
There is nothing fancy about where I work. It is however a place for me to enter and be surrounded by tools that allow me to do what I love to do...create. I like the idea of giving new life to cast away pieces. I like to re imagine and transform them into something beautiful and well loved. Here is a project I am working on right now and this is how she started out.
Here she is half way through.
I am going to gold leaf the entire chair to really bring out the gold. The final fabric is going to be the most beautiful dark plum velvet. Hopefully I can show you the final product soon. We are taking it slow this week. Our B moved to sunny California for an amazing job opportunity and of course we are missing him tremendously. Everything simply reminds me of him.
