A worthy desk.

Ladies and gentlemen hold on to your hats...I closed on the paperwork for our renovations today.  Not without a fight...but the final check has been cut and hopefully it will all be over within a few days. My husband and I will be doing the renovations here for the next couple of years, at least until the sting wears off.

This tiny reno is nearly complete too. (Claire and I have one wall left to paint.)  I finished the desk today.  Formerly our kitchen table we have done a bit of a shuffle.  It took no time to move into the doubled size.  A side to sew and a side sketch...

This is the top of an old hutch I backed in vintage nursery wallpaper and painted a grey blue.

Space...oh the space!

I spent a few hours folding and sorting fabric.  Loving each piece just as I did when I found it.

Looks amazing Renee! I do love all your vintage treasures! I also feel the same way about my vintage linens..

Renee, it is just so perfectly you! That is a great use of the hutch and the wallpaper inside is so sweet. Is that the sewing machine you use or for decoration? I love those old black ones with the gold flourish decoration and would rescue every one I find if I had a place to store them.

Your studio looks like a showroom of vintage treasures. So many things to stop and examine closly. It looks like a place I would never want to leave! Great job!

I love it! The shelves look beautiful with your array of vintage items! I know you will be so happy working in your new space. ;)


Hi Renee,
Looking FAB!!! Could you tell me the room size?! I'm thinking about changing this up around here after the holidays and thinking your room is about the size of the one I may "take over"!

Renee, this is JUST how I want my "dream" studio to look - full of FUN and vintage things. I am just in awe over your sweet collections!!! We have some of the same things, only many of mine are packed away to use someday when I have that very special creative room.

Thanks so much for sharing!

your new studio/craft room is simply stunning! I love all of your shelves! You have done a remarkable job on the painting, the wall papering, and the way you have everything displayed. It looks so wonderful. Enjoy your time in the room!!!
