I'm not overly big on snapping and sharing all sorts of shots inside my home. We have a very nice, roomy, comfortable dwelling, but there are aspects about it I'm dying to change....swap out the carpeted areas for wood floors, finally get moving on some window treatments, etc.
I also cop to feeling a bit intimidated by the absolutely mad decorating skills of some of you ladies and gents! No need to name names, you know who you are...
There's a really wonderful publication called Where Women Create, and it's filled with image after image of the workspaces of inspiring, creative ladies. I'm always fascinated to see where my blog friends whip up their magic, be it a studio, office, or like me, a desk in the living room and a workstation in the computer room.
Today I'm going to give you a glimpse of my tiny little creative space just off the front door in the living room.
Not loving the green carpet, but oh how I love this desk! Found at a garage sale about a month and a half ago for....get this...$7.50. I recall a tale from Stan Williams, The Elegant Thrifter himself, of a much beloved desk he rescued in the early 80s for $10, which you can read about here. That's exactly how I feel about my utilitarian beauty, and I'm not even going to brag that I beat Stan by a whole $2.50! ;-)
This is really an amazing piece of furniture, heavy and sturdy and save for some wear on the desktop, in absolutely stellar shape.
The gorgeous chair was purchased from my bestest guy-pal junkin' buddy Troy of Junk Exchange, and I can't imagine another chair fitting quite so perfectly, can you?
My antique mail sorter, and I know for a fact that it is fo shizzle a true antique, this baby is OLD!
I use it to store craft glue, paper clips, stamp pads, glitter, and the odd tchotchke.
That's a bird's eye view of just one of the areas I like to spread my creative wings.
Hope you've enjoyed the tour!
