Garage doors...inside the house!







Well my friends, I've been at it again...redoing a room I just changed a few months ago!  Shocking, I know!! :)  And it's all because of these 1920's garage doors I bought from my sister's friend for a steal!!  I love how they add a fun and unexpected element to my studio space...

Somehow they just started the ball rolling and before I knew it, I was changing all kinds of things in this room.  I'm not 100% done in here yet, but it's close, so I thought I would share it with you...

{sorry for the bad exposure on these pictures, but the mornign sun comes streaming in the bay window in this room and it screws up all of my pictures}




I love my good friend Maria's ladder and how she decorates with it {you're uber fabulous Maria :)}, so when I found this vintage ladder at my new favorite store, Whimsy, I had to have it!  I hung a few of my vintage grain sacks on it...



I just found this adorable little caddy over the weekend...love the color and patina on it...

I can easily set it aside and have an additional work surface to use when wrapping orders for my SHOP...my son/helper also likes to refer to this table as his desk :) 





Since I don't sew, I made a bolster for the daybed by stuffing a few pillows in one of my grain sacks...



And speaking of the daybed, did you notice I painted it pale grey??!  The black just wasn't working for me anymore...it's much prettier this way...









My mom made a skirt for around my work table out of the Jeanne d' Arc curtains I carry in the shop...I was in need of hiding all of the clutter under the table!  A huge thank you mom!!!



I also decided not to use the wine rack as my ribbon rack anymore...it is now back in the dining room and I will probably hang all of my white cups from it again.







I bought these two gorgeous vintage garden chairs from Joy when I attended Anne Marie's Barn Sale a few weeks ago {BTW, Joy is having a giveaway if you want to head on over to her blog}...








I continue to be mostly absent from blogland due to a major project I am working on...more details on that in the next week or two...but it has me working night and day...so, please be patient with me girls, I promise I'll be back more regularly soon!  I miss you all so much...

Enjoy a wonderful week!!!
