A shelf repainted in pink

I painted my old shelf pink but I still dream of a real art studio or at least a little craft room…

ćtervunnen hylla A while back I bought a store shelf at a recycling store (Återvinningen). It was already varnished in rust brown, cute nice but not my style.

So after a lot of hesitation I went to the the Paint & wallpaper store and got pink paint! The pink is very bright (but not white!), a shabby chic colour that I adore!

I painted it on my balcony, in the sun this weekend. And this is how it turned out:

Finished!
Tada!

On the balconyAfter it dried I took it back into the bedroom and filled it up with my craftsy stuff!

Yarn in the plastic boxes on the floor and then paint, paper, small boxes with lace and buttons and some small pieces of fabric (the rest still jammed packed in my closet).

I would love a real big studio or just a small little craft room, but we just have two rooms. It’s stupid that I have all this stuff in the bedroom, since I do my collages in the living room sofa or in the kitchen and have to carry everything around all the time. But for now it’s good like this, and now the shelf is pink and shabby! Love it!

But still… I love to look at other peoples studios online, when ever I see a studio tour posted I visit and drool.

I would like a colorful studio á lá Teesha Moore, a whole room full of stuff and stamps… I would love to live in a place of art and crafts! In the meantime I’m happy with a pink shelf of course.

But I will keep on dreaming – of space.

  5. It’s amazing how you can carve out a space when you want one, eh? I had 1/2 of our guest room, but since the kids have thier own rooms now, I’m sharing the office, but at least it’s a space. Maybe we can dream about a true studio space, eh? I’m sure it will happen eventually! :-)
