Happy Friday everyone.
This past week I have been in slooooow motion. I think the main reason is that it is January. The other reason is that the kitchen makeover is 97% done and I wanted to get it completed this week, but could not. I am in a “hold-mode”. I have to wait for the light for over the kitchen sink to be delivered. UPS Tracking says Monday. I also have to wait for the new oven to be installed. It won’t get installed until next Monday. I sort of lost my momentum. It wasn’t a totally unproductive week though.
While I was doing the kitchen, Ed finished the construction in the foyer to enclose the space under the staircase and we started on the hallway of darkness. Under the foyer steps is pretty much done and turned out just as I imagined. All it needs is paint. I will show you a sneak peak on Monday.
After these projects are done, I plan to head into my studioffice.
I have pretty much ignored it for the past few months and used it as a dumping ground for the kitchen makeover supplies. It does not look all neat and organized like this anymore. It is quite a mess!
I want to create a less cluttered feel. I really don’t need everything I have in the room so I will start by purging and then reorganize. The glass cabinet in the corner is empty. It was in my kitchen in my previous house. I like it so we kept it. I think I am going to make it a table for one of the guest rooms. Moving it will open up that corner.
When we moved into the house I set it up pretty much the way I had it in my previous house. Having worked in it for the past year, I want to tweak it a little.
I love the clean, bright and cheery vibe this room has, but what really caught my eye were the swing arm wall sconces above the table on the right. I don’t have lights over my worktable and these would be perfect except for one thing…
…it costs $400. I will be searching for an affordable knock-off. :-) This light is called the Hillsdale 1 Light Swing Arm Sconce from Hudson Valley Lighting available at Wayfair. If you know of any lights that look like this please let me know.
I love the open and airy feel of this workspace. It is a group space, but the streamlined look appeals to me
I love the white and pops of pink in this space. My desk is almost identical to the one in the photo. I found mine for free in curbside trash. I wrote about it in this post: My Found Desk Gets a High Gloss Makeover
What I do for a living pretty much requires me to have a dedicated space to create and call my own. I know everybody does not need such a space, but would like a little place to call your own. If I didn’t have a studioffice, I would try to make one part of a room or use a closet to carve out a little spot like this for myself. I am not sure I would want that chair, though. Looks chic, but very uncomfortable. :-)
So while I physically paint the new wall under the foyer steps this weekend, my mind will be right down the hall, trying to figure out what I will do first in my studioffice and searching online for affordably priced swing arm wall sconces.
I hope you have a great weekend.
