my workshop {and a project!}

December 6th | decorating, DIY

i thought you might like a little peek into my workspace.

we moved into a new building a few months ago-and it’s still a bit of a mess. so i cropped these pics carefully, ha!

above that’s my funky, olive green leather chair. $30 at a fave thrift store yay!

i spend a lot of my working time online.

cute wicker desk chair from ikea. sweet heart leaf from a friend.

i’ve got a collection of vintage paintings covering one wall.

love love how they look all together.

and over the weekend i painted a huge drawing board with chalkboard paint.

you can find there HERE or just search online. they’re about $10-15.

and i love that it has huge clips. i just nailed this one right on the wall.

sketch, make lists, clip up inspiring magazine pages.

and wouldn’t it be perfect for a kid’s room? you could clip a big sheet of paper for watercoloring or draw with chalk.

so fun!

    Considering my “workspace” {and I use the term loosely} is my dining room table, yours is paradise. Very inspiring, Lisa. Hope I can carve out a space like that for myself someday {sigh}…

    Just love stopping by your blog. It always makes me smile. I’ve wondered about your son and I do hope he is getting along good.

    Happy week!

    Love that clipboard! Chalkboards are great for so many things.

    It looks lovely…I really like the green leather chair. And I had to say…I have the same typewriter table, the same old black lunch box and the same giant clipboard! Altho mine isn’t painted with chalkboard paint…what a great idea!

    That is an inspiring workspace! Love the drawing board idea. I have a drawing board and chalkboard paint around here. Now to figure out how to spray paint in the snow & where to put the finished product. Have a great day!

    Thanks for a peek! I just received my mama necklace and LOVE IT! As soon as my best friend saw me today she noticed my necklace and then I handed her a box with her own inside! She was thrilled. Thank you.

    I agree, more pictures! I would love to see the workspace where the jewelry pieces are created (not that I’d ever share picutres of my horrible mess, ha.) I love to see the tools, and yes, even the mess!

    I knew we were kindred sisters who LOVE a night nurse and all, BUT when I saw your BIG orange coffee mug, that sealed our friendship. I have the SAME one as a stacking mug from Cost Plus and orange is my go to color!!!!
    I LOVE a big cup of coffee in the morning……

    I love it! I just ordered (for myself, ha ha) your teeny tiny necklace with my 3 children’s initials. I cannot wait! I’ve been waiting a few years for this purchase and I don’t know why I waited so long.
