Good Morning Friends,
Well not so much my desk this week as a little room! This is my WOYWW for this week, yes it's that time when we dare to share our workspace courtesy of the lovely Julia over at Stamping Ground..click here for all the deets and share yours too!
About nine years ago, Tom and I bought, erected and painted this little Summer House, with the idea that it would double as a craft room and somewhere to sit and chill on damp but warm days! Well it does still get used for the latter, but I'm afraid I quickly migrated back in to the spare room for my crafts...I couldn't keep it all out there, sometimes I needed the computer and back and forth was a real drag...so latterly it became more of a storage room that a useful little extra room.
So I decided that I would divide up my paper craft and sewing stash with my altered and mixed media art stuff. Paper craft is what I do most and the room isn't really practical for fabrics, so they would stay inside and my art stuff outside..and here the story begins.
This is the actual summerhouse, which will itself get a lick of paint in the summer and the roof took a bit of a battering in the storms - but no leaks! It's ideally situated next to the hen house :)...can you see the little ladies loitering outside, bums sticking up? I've had to be a bit quiet as well, because we have Great Tits nesting in the box on the side!
So far I have cleaned out the inside and managed to throw quite a bit away, some items I still have to find alternative homes for...
Below is the shelving we got at the weekend: we put it together and I painted it with chalk paint in a 'William Morris' inspired colour...I will get around to painting the other bookcase, which was already in situ. As you can see I have already moved some of my art stuff inside...it's a case of having to because it has taken over the spare room and we have visitors coming next month! There is still more to move and more furniture to paint, but as long as I can start working in there soon, I'll be happy!
So that's my WOYWW for today, I will update as it progresses!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Love and Hugs,
