Studio Reveal

Friday, January 10, 2014

I'm so excited to share with you my new secret hideaway!  After lots of discussing, Brian and I decided to convert our Tool Storage Mudroom into our designated studio.  To keep the makeover quick, organized and cost effective, we decided to hold off on any real renovations.  Instead we kept the pegboard and brought in furniture that otherwise didn't have a place in our home.  Not only am I excited to have a designated work space, but the new mudroom now stores and organizes all of my antique & vintage finds.   With the exception of a couple things, most everything in this room has been purchased second hand, DIYed or bought from antique & thrift stores.  Tomorrow, I'll share a more specific source guide, but for now I wanted to share our new space!
One of my favorite things?
The Pegboard!  
Not only does it allow for additional storage, but I can easily change and display those items that inspire me most.  It's like one giant cork board, but better!
My new morning ritual? 
Cranking up the space heater and enjoying a cup of tea on our vintage church pew.
 How's the lighting?
With 2 large picture windows and a glass front door, the room brings in plenty of natural light.  Great for photos and growing my favorite, Dusty Miller!
Even Rawley loves the new space!  His Favorite Spot?
Right in front of the space heater.
So, there you have it; our little creative space, that's now called our studio.


  1. Omigosh Michelle! This is BEAUTIFUL. I love it! Ironically we are working on my studio room right now, and I have been debating about doing pegboard on one wall...I think you just sold me. I really love your room..the natural light from the windows, the pew (that wood is gorgeous!) and of course your sweet fur baby. Great job!! :)

    1. Tania ~ thanks so much! I LOVE that you're working on your studio as well ~ doesn't it feel so awesome to have a designated space for all things DIY?! Good luck finishing up yours ~ it's going to be great!! xo

  2. Seriously gorgeous! I'm also undergoing a studio renovation so this provides some great inspiration. Love the colors and natural wood tones. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Michelle and Brian, Fantastic the way you arranged that room. What great ideas you have! Grams

  4. Adore it! Are you going to Scott Antique Market this weekend?
    Ryan and I just bought a house, and we're super excited about checking out the market tomorrow!

  5. Looking fantastic, Michelle! What a lovely, organized, and inspiring space...and that old church pew is to die for! Awesome! =)

  6. I LOVE the room, especially the touches of greens and blues! I am glad you are posting more often these days because I really enjoy your blog. Have a good weekend!

  7. Beautiful! So charming - I would love to work here :)

  8. There's not one part of this room I would change! I love every inch of it! Such a beautiful set up!

  9. Wow, Michelle, I love this room! It is so cozy and there is SO much detail! I don't know, maybe all the items in the room are completely random, but they all seem to have a purpose and I feel like they must mean something to you. I am in the process of designing my office/studio (never had a real one before :) ) and this is definitely inspirational. Great job!

  10. What an incredible space! I'm in love!

  11. Saw the picture of your studio in a line-up of a whole group of studios/creative spaces (25 maybe). Yours was my favorite, by far. Great job. I love it! Love all the textures, the pegboard (what a great idea) and the dusty miller, which is a favorite of mine as well.

  12. What a beautiful space! I love your pegboard and that cubby storage piece is swoon-worthy! Found you through TDC! New follower! :-)

  13. I love your style! This is super cute and inspiring. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Great use of a peg board. I am sharing this on Pinterest.
