My new organized Studio:)

Hello Lovelies, 
like I announced a while ago, 
I wanted to show you my revamped studio today.

I change my mind really often when it comes to decor, 
design, styling rooms
or restyle furniture.
This is because I love this stuff;)
And why not?!

I think I am not really done with this room, 
need to clean out a little more and find some other storage solutions.
But I am pretty sure I will stay in this color palette.;)

So here it comes my finished Studio (for now...)




On this spot I had my sketch table. 
This one moved to the other side of the room.
Here I have now a siting area,  where I can chat with my clients, 
or simply read a book...
Isn`t this little lamp the cutest you`ve ever seen?;)
I will made a cute little side table, which I show you next time.


Here we go, now you see the huge craft or painting table, 
with my huge architect cabinet.
And my sketch table.
My dad added some more ceiling lights.


I put some big rolls under the cabinet, for easy moving, 
because this thing is huge and heavy!
And I want to change the handles, don`t like the gold ones.
Want to put the same ones like on the other cabinet, where you can see below.


Under the table you can find all sorts of paint, 
in huge pots and containers which don`t fit in to my paint cabinet.


Some (un)finished work standing here and there...
I so do love this IKEA cart! Really amazing, what you can fit in it.
And so easy to move around.


My storage units.
In the left cabinet I have all of my paints and brushed, foam rollers...
And in the big one, with the orange cubical`s are my sketchbooks, 
duct tape, pallet papers and some other stuff...

In the cabinet  near the orange clock is a hidden sink, 
where I can wash my brushes and stuff.





This is it, the tour around my studio.
Come over and visit me;)
I would love that!

So what do you think?

How`s your weekend looked like?

Hello Lovelies,
how was your weekend? 
I have finished some more paintings, organized a shelf in my studio, 
cleaned out some stuff and found a stump...;)

Here are some finished paintings...


For this one I am building a pink frame, like in the picture above.



I finally finished "Ophelia`s" hair!
I don`t know but this was kind of a long ride :)
I am considering to put some flowers around her, maybe some purple ones.
I don`t know yet, should I?


And " Little Viking" is evolving too.
So happy I am getting the direction I wanted this painting go to.


I want to paint a huge white wolf at the background-
The boy is going to gat a coat as well, maybe some snow too, we`ll see.


Like I pointed out in the previous post I painted the walls in my studio.

before 

after

Looks so different, right?

And here is the shelf before, with my paints in the left container
and all of my books I like to have around, my brushes,
 pallet paper, paintings and hidden stuff like duct tape and paint rollers.


I simply went to Ikea and bought these orange, foldable fabric container 
and put all the stuff in;)
Like this.


And here is the organized shelf!


Looks so much better, right?
Love the orange and space, man they can fit a lot;)

And I found a tree stump!
I wanted to make him a little side table for my studio;)



Maybe something with glossy pink?
Well, stay tuned for that ;)

How was your weekend?
Please tell in the comments below!
I love to hear from you;)

DIY, new Sofa for my Studio! Made from three old wooden cribs! ;)

Hello Lovelies, 
I wanted to share today how I made a new sofa for my Studio.


I made it from 3 old wooden cribs.
My Dad is working as a facility manager
 at a couple of nursery homes and Kindergarden`s.
So from time to time he bring things back home and always asking me, 
if I want to keep some of the things.
And I do, sometimes.
Like this time, these beds were stacked in the garage for quite a time 
until I figured out what I wanted to do with them.


I used three headboards and one slatted frame.
Two of the headboards I used as the back of the sofa and I cut two round halves of the headboards to use them as armrests. And to close the gap between the backside of the sofa.
And my Dad got me two mattresses as well.



After I screwed everything together it looked like this.
See the armrests?

As I was deciding which color it would get I sew a mattress cower from some fabric I bought a loong time ago. 
And I put two big pillows I had left from my old Sofa from my living room.
So everything is reclaimed accept the new paint. ;)

Look who is also already loving it;)


Like a king on his throne;)

So here it is, everything put together.



After filling the drilling holes I started painting.



After one coat of anthracite paint.


And here it is after two coats and completely dried.
(You may have noticed, that I painted the walls too and put some molding up on the ceiling. I will show you the finished studio soon;))


Quite nice, right? So let`s throw on  the mattresses and rug.


Hmm, something is missing... Oh I know, some fun pillows and some pretty art.
LIke this...


Just again the corner before...


...amd after!
Tadaa!!!
Drumroll please...;)


Love the outcome! So cozy, fun, colorful and comfy;)
The wooden box on the right is for my cats, they always used to climb right into it.
So I put a blanket in it. 


This corner really evolved;)
Love it! 
So what do you think?
A friend told me I should build furniture more often and make a living out of it;)
Should I?
My point is, just build something with your own hands! 
You don`t always have to buy new stuff, 
just visit your local thrift store or some flea markets and use what you find to create something new.;)

Here is the stuff I have around, to put it on the table.
Greens, glass, wooden sticks some ceramic eggs, flowers, candles...


A table runner


Look at these eggs;)


And here is everything put together on the table.
