Ninety - Eight - Percent

I only have a few more things that I'd like to do
...before this room is completely finished:

#1 Stencil along the top or the walls around the entire room,
#2 Change out the hanging lamp in the middle of the room,
and #3 maybe get a new cupboard for my wools...
I have plenty of bookshelves that Peter has built for me over the years,
that i use for my books, magazines and storage baskets...but I get tired of looking at them,
So as you can see in the pic below, I've taken some blue & cream homespun
and curtained them off...

The pic above also shows my reclaimed blue chair that I hook & stitch in...
it is comfy, but ugly!!
so, I covered the seat & back with an old burlap sack...
{{appropriate for a hooking room, no?}} LOL :)
I also made little cafe valances from that same blue & cream homespun
and hung my favorite muslin fishtail swags above...
in the pic below you can see my desk/work table...
I totally de-cluttered it down to the basics and I LOVE it...

...remember that yellow lamp?
it is now matte black...
love how the light peeks out from the punched-tin
(yes, I will HIDE those tangled cords behind my desk...hate seeing them, sorry!)
and below is the 'busy' corner...
where I store just some of my collection of OLD Country Living mags,
hooking books, quilting books, and of course, a tiny bit of my ginormous stash of wools~

I collect antique wooden sewing hoops and old frames
so I put them up as wall-art to catch ever-changing displays...

and of course,
BASKETS...
I must have over 100 of them and I swear I use them all...
they hold WIP's and UFO's, threads, wool worms, fabric, raw sheeps wool...etc.

It is to the point that I can relax and breathe now when I enter the room,
which, btw, is open to the stairwell...
I yet have to drape an old quilt on the railing
and hang another on the wall, but that will come...
and I'll share more pics of the progress.

Hope you like the 'new' look !!!

On a sad little note,
our baby white peacock has died...
not sure why, but I found him this morning.
It did get chilly last night, but he was under a heat lamp
and all of the other babies fared well...
I don't know if perhaps because he was white, maybe he had bad genes?
maybe he was just weak...but we will miss his little face and coo-ing sound...
poor little thing.
we do have another brown baby peacock,
...and another hatching as we speak...

I'll post pics of them & the Opossums tomorrow
...along with a rug that I'm working on!

Blessings from the Farm,
Lori

  10. Your room looks so cozy Lori.
    It's alot of work to re-do a studio . . I just did mine too :-) I found that when i took everything out . . . for some reason it didn't all go back in!!
    I think when you do that the stuff magically multiplies!

    So sorry about your sweet little baby . . . sometimes there are no explanations, except the joy he brought you for a short time.

    All my best,
    Lori Ann

  12. I have a question -- how do you hang your rugs on the wall?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hi Jacque !
    I just pop a couple antique hatpins into them and hang them...unless they're huge rugs, then I have Peter put them up with a wooden stick along the top....
