I bought some hardwood frame profile at the hardware store, measured it a million times (so Lyndon couldn't laugh at me when I got it wrong - measure twice, cut once he always says) and cut the angled joints on the drop saw (that thing is scary!).
Lyn them helped me nail it all together and I painted it with the left over turquoise paint from my old step ladder project.
I then put it all together thanks to the staple gun, attached a hanging wire and we got it up on the wall.
I'm really happy with the results.
There's still things to do in my studio room. I'm still sorting things, have curtains to make and hopefully add in a reading chair when the budget allows. I love the room though.
I don't think I ever showed you my rug. It's a Laura Ashley Malmaison design in French Blue, now discontinued I believe. I bought it from a German seller off ebay. It was less than half the retail price. She posted it and it seemed to go missing in transit. When I asked her to check it out for me it turns out there was a terrorist threat on one of the planes DHL used and so all the parcels were plonked on a boat. I decided to trust her story and sure enough, a few months later it arrived!
Initially I was thinking about bright rugs for this room, but I'm very happy with this one as it doesn't overpower the room. It's a timeless design that I'll be happy to use forever.
A piccy of my space :)
(must make a cover for my chair)
My desk is messy already. Too many little projects on the go.
As you can see, my shelving is well utilised! I just love it. For those of you who are newish to my blog, I'm very proud to say that Lyn and I built this shelving from scratch. It was a mammoth effort but I just love it.
A closeup of my pin board. Lots of flowers and bird inspiration. It will be full in no time!
Thanks for looking and wishing you all a great week.
