Every day I step on this plywood step that was made by my contractor for the interim until the Spring when all the concrete will be removed.
Every day I imagine what it will look like with a real stone step, bushes and a fabulous stone walkway from the house. Here’s what the exterior looked like before.
Inside though, we have made some progress. The reason why I’m not showing you an interior photo of our desk area is because we still need art on either side of the mirror that you can see. It looks very bare at the moment.
We gutted the inside which was a workshop when we bought it. This is what it looked like before.
Here’s what this end of the studio looked like for a little too long. That’s Markus who found chocolate on my desk and hid behind this desk to eat it, little rascal!
And here’s the after. I installed the cabinets, sink and faucet (from IKEA) so we could make tea, store drinks in the fridge, etc.
You can see that I continued the countertop to the 4″ on the backsplash because it was so close to the window sill. A row of tile would have looked silly.
I thought my kelly green tea in a tiffany box styled specifically for this photo was particularly inspired, haha.
If you are installing a laminate countertop I would choose grey or black. I chose grey because I’ll have a black tray on the counter with the polka dot mugs in it, etc.
And here is the before picture of the other side of the studio.
Here’s the fake, flocked tree I bought last year in January at 1/2 price.
Love the blue poinsettia I found!
These acrylic reindeer are from Superstore. They look like they are made from glass.
I love my fake candles.
Hope you enjoyed the tour my lovelies!
