I have been pretty busy lately. I have been trying to get our studio finished before Thanksgiving. We just aren't able to do projects downstairs with busy Baby Hughes anymore. And, I just can't bring myself to decorating for Christmas when our house is in shambles. We have many, many projects that just need to be completed. This week I painted the entire room and I am currently working on painting the furniture and making window treatments. And, I am usually pretty bad about taking before photos, so I decided to show you the raw materials that are going to become the bones of our studio.
This is a vintage set of cubbies... maybe a it is a vintage post box. It has lots of little spots to help us organize our supplies. See the letters? And it is grey!
This pile of sheets will become the window treatments.
This lovely brassy chandelier is going to replace the light in the room.
I found this little vintage trash can in our garage today... it will be painted.
Mr. Hughes picked up this cane chair for $15 and then he ripped out the old fabric and foam. I have big plans for it!
Then there are these metal and glass bookshelves. It was too hard and time consuming to strip them down to the bare metal, so I am painting these as well.
I also have a beautiful table that is also going to be where we do our projects. I would have taken a photo of it, but I couldn't exactly get to it.... if you could see our garage (which you won't) you would understand.
Well, with any luck, I will have some finished projects to show at the end of this week. Wish me luck!
