The Studio in Preston

This is my media, tv corner...I took this photo before I put the table in place...it goes with the two stools...I hope to get the new book case next week...this area will be used for planning layouts, projects, etc...
This is my pine cabinet I had made years ago...back when I was decorative painting all the time, it held my supplies, etc...then when I got married a few years ago...we put it in the kitchen to hold cooking supplies, now...its back holding arts and crafts supplies and photos...
I have been collecting odd jars to hold beads, buttons, flowers, etc...I love the colors and look of all the different jars...I have more to add, but I ran outta jars for the moment...
I had the mirrors installed this week...I was not sure I wanted to give up the wall space...but these were my daddy's mirrors, and moma gave them to me...I really wanted to have them in my studio, as my daddy used to enjoy watching me create...he would sit across the table from me while I stamped or worked on layouts...so, this will be nice to have something of his in there with me...I am using the space next to the mirrors for my 8.5 x 11 cardstock storage...on the other side of that, the Hoosier will be placed...hopefully by Sunday it will be there...
I only have 1 six foot table so far, I will be using another odd table until I can get another one purchased...this is just an overview from me standing in the door way of the dining room area...
This is my desk/work space...yeah...pay close attention...its clean right now...LOL...after Sunday...I don't know...cause, I am going to play Sunday...Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise...
This is the wall behind my desk...it will hold lots of my unmounted stamps, or at least the ones I use on a pretty regular basis...I have more still to move...but they may have to wait a while...The area of wall space at the corner, I will mount a piece of hardware cloth for hanging items to be stored...
These are the new lights...I love them...they use daylight bulbs and they really brighten up the room nicely...I hope to have the other things moved in over the weekend...and then it will be a functional studio...finally...

It's really coming along! Still looks so spacious; even with all you've brought in! And the mirrors will make it look even larger! Great idea to put them in your studio. It will almost be like your dad is still there watching you!

Hi Debbie, how fab to have a clean slate to glam up and make your own, even if it's an already existing space. You've done so much, good luck with what remains.
