Last week I showed you how I made over Hubby’s sanctuary.
Or at least it’s a sanctuary now.
Since he didn’t kill me and I’m still blogging, I thought I’d show you my little piece of the house;
I have another hobby, besides refinishing furniture, organizing, sewing, blogging and painting anything that stands still…
I make cards.
Or rather I plagiarize amazing cards that I find online and this is my studio.
The desk is from Ikea:
I took the top off and replaced it with a long counter that I refinished to look like faux-granite. (see the tutorial I posted last week.)
I tucked a little Helmer unit underneath.
The back wall houses all of my paper, stamps and cutting supplies.
When we finished the basement we had planned for this to be a spare bedroom since we didn’t have one, but we so rarely have guests that stay over, it seemed a waste of space.
So I took it over.
Hubby did a board and batton treatment for me to help lighten the room up.
The wall you can’t see is actually just two tall bookshelves with a double french door between. It looks into the girls’ playroom.
This way I don’t have to feel guilty that I’m holed away somewhere and not keeping an eye on them.
