A rescued-from-the-trash wood hutch, some of my fabrics, thrift store storage cart, a hand-embroidered tunic of some kind (anyone know?) to disguise the hot water closet a little.
Blue thrift store chair, denims and WIPs below, black & whites and tans above, on found-wood shelves (collaged with vintage book ephemera.) I need to hide that breaker box!
Temporary window covering -- a vintage silk scarf my sister picked up in Hawaii, I think. The non-functioning bamboo shade was already here. . . I'll be replacing it soon with some fabric curtains.
My work surface is a large office desk, with drawers, picked up at an office liquidation sale for mega-cheap.
More found-wood, collaged shelves for khakis, corduroys and shipping supplies.
This spool organizer was found in one of our storage sheds -- it's a homemade piece.
An inspiration board made from an old cork board (also found in the storage shed) and covered with scrap batting and a skirt. A vintage thrift store scarf and hanky hang nearby.
This next area sits back in a darker recessed area (and is even more difficult to photograph.) The desk and credenza are also liquidation furniture. The credenza is crammed with teacher's manuals and homeschool books, and functions as a catch-all on top. The office chairs in the space are either hand-me-downs or liquidation pieces.
A project clipboard (reclaimed materials,) an embroidered art piece my sister made, Monkey 6's tiny outgrown glasses (the tiniest pair is only 4" wide,) and one of my children's crucifixes (we have several of these.)
I still need to make curtains like I mentioned above, and I definitely want to paint the walls. It's so hard to see in the photos, but the walls are a dull institution grey. Depressing! Also on the to-do list is installing a fold-down ironing board. There's a blank little space to the immediate left of the doorway, and that would be a perfect fit.
And that's it! I am just so happy that everything is finally all unpacked and clean. The shocker is that I've been keeping it clean. Those of you who have seen my work area in real life know what a huge accomplishment that is for me! Maybe that should be my new year's resolution. Thanks for looking!
