More storage finds.

Today I had a great time finding some more storage for the studio!  Now I need to get in there and start setting it up!

Storage and Fun

I decided to take some pictures of the many items I plan to use in my newly redecorated Art/Craft Studio!  It isn't anywhere near complete but in progress.   School will be starting back up soon so my time is very limited to finish up.  It is rather slow going, though, and I am thinking I may still be working on it even after I am back to teaching.

I just received some templates for French labels from another blogger - one of my favorites: Petite Michelle Louise!  These are really terrific!  I am planning to use them on several of the storage pieces I am putting in my art/craft room (that will someday be complete!). 
Thank you, thank you, Michelle, for sharing!

Nooks and crannys!

I love things with little drawers, little cubbyholes, etc.  This is my latest find - which will also go into my art/craft room when I finish painting it!


I finished painting my new easel.  I really like it!  Free paint and all!  Now I just have to haul it to my craft room and get started on my next great find!!

Birthday wall!

My daughter does scrapbooking and is setting up a room just to work.  One wall in that room was still pretty awful - the room used to be a 70's bar (literally from the 70's) - and for her birthday I bought insulation, lumber, sheetrock, counter and supplies to rebuild it, then used palettes and built her some shelves for above the cabinet.  I don't have any before pictures of the wall, darn it!  It was really quite awful!  But I have the shelf progress!
Palettes used for the shelves.
 Finished building.
 Whitewashed the finished shelves.
 Left side hung on the wall.
 Right side hung on the wall.
 Added smaller shelves to the right of the first set of shelves on the right.
 Left side beginning to fill.
 Right side beginning to fill.
Overall wall - although I couldn't get the entire wall in the picture!  =)

My Kitchen

These are just a few places in my very eclectic kitchen!

Sometimes I have such a hard time deciding what to keep and what to change - particularly, of course, when I have found a lovely new little something at a recent sale!!


 Probably most of what you see in these pictures came from a sale at one time or another.

Painter's Easel

THIS is one of my latest finds - and most definitely one that I am very excited about! I plan to get this cleaned up and painted and use it for painting!! I will re-post it when it is finished. Oh yes - the paint was FREE, too!

This is what it looks like from the side and below a closer pic of the drawers! Aren't they cool? =)

Wire planters

These are two old, wire plant stands that I picked up awhile back at a sale. I love old, vintage looking objects. These look great out in my front flowerbeds although I don't have anything in or on them at the moment!

A Fave

This was one of my favorite garage sale buys! I love things with lots of drawers! This one I use in my bathroom for all of those little things that take up space. The two stools and accessories are also sale buys!
