long weekend

I have a four day weekend starting at 8pm tomorrow night and I am so excited! I am not traveling, or visiting with in-laws. No meetings, nothing on my calendar. It will be a proper stay-cation and I could not be more excited! Of course I had to make plans, but ones that I have laid out, and am giddy about!

a little bit of backstory…

We moved into our house two years ago this month { how can it possibly be two years} and I have used my studio as little more than a dumping ground. I have re-organized, and changed the layout about three or four times, but have not found the best fit for me. The main problem is that I was trying to only work with what I already had, and without adding anything new to the mix it did not work out.

Last weekend I made the trek to the suburbs and IKEA. {I have a love hate relationship with IKEA, but that is a story for another day!} I also purchased some much needed paint.  All of the walls in our house were painted the same color when we moved in, “sell it” cream or something along those lines, Navaho White by Sherwin Williams in our case. {Apparently people purchase homes based on wall colors, ridiculous, but again, this is a story for another day!} Last year when we were painting most of the other rooms in our house, I discovered that Lowe’s had the recipes for all of the Benjamin Moore paints, and I have never looked back! I save a ton of money, about half the price, and still get exactly what I want!

So in summation, this weekend, on my four day stay-cation, I will be renovating my studio, and hopefully making it a more pleasant, inspirational, and useful space! Below are a few of the goodies that I picked up for the project!

I will be adding before and after photos, and some wish list items to add to the room over time, in the coming weeks!
