Workspace Makeover: THE FINISHED PRODUCT!

>> Thursday, March 4, 2010

Well, without further ado, here it is! My new kitchen nook / workspace! Its a small little space but its filled with inspiration and organized supplies for easy access and crafting time!

I bought all my white storage containers and files from The Container Store, the shelfing unit from IKEA (now only $69!). I used apothecary jars to hold my labels and paint brushes, and repurposed candle sticks (made by my friend Ellie) to hold my twine & string. I reused one some of my wedding decorations to hold cards and paper goodies I've collected...and I framed some Kraft paper and use drafting tape (easily removeable) to create inspiration boards that can change on a whim!

This table is something I found at the fabulous Alameda Flea Market the first time I went with Allegra. It's a vintage card table from London and is one of my favorite colors! I love that it can fold up if I need extra space too....oh ya, and it was only $40!

How cute are the Emerson Made flowers I won?!?!?! I'm mildly obsessed...

I especially loved looking for the little bursts of color throughout your apartment! The yellow in the kitchen and craft area were so pretty, and I adore your bathroom's shower curtain and accessories.

I did blog about you just now....

I have been looking for a table of sorts like that one from Ikea forever. Do you happen to remember the line it's from there? I can't seem to find it on their site...

Thanks! Love your blog! :)

Oh my stars!!! I had been having a particularly difficult couple of months and was feeling a little worn out. So my sister returned from her holiday in New York, with '100 wishes' and I was so touched, I cried! It was just what I needed and it hangs from my headboard so that when I wake up it is the first thing I see every morning!!
