My Studio: Inspiration

Studio McGee

I'm in the process of a much needed studio overhaul! It's exhausting because I have SO MUCH STUFF, and I'm somewhat of a hoarder when it comes to craft supplies, but I know that it will be 100% worth it in the end.

I'm so in love with the image above. White and bright with the gold pendants being the focal point of the room.

I also really love this natural wood with pops of black and white studio, so much so that I made the 3 1/2 hour trek to Ikea a few weekends ago to buy this Tarva storage system.

My dad gave me a long table that is sturdy but not super nice, so it's perfect to use as my cutting table. The only problem is that I need it to be taller, so we're trying to think of solutions to add some height without having to buy a whole new table. I think the decorative cinder blocks or some sort of pallet construction would both look pretty great!

Something about white rooms with fun colors on the window trim really speaks to me. You get to have the bright white room, as well as a whimsical color pop without being too distracting. I'm definitely going to implement this in my studio, probably in the form of a muted mint. :)

In honor of full disclosure, I'll give you a little peek at my current mess of a studio.. (insert monkey covering his eyes emoji here!)

My husband Danny is the biggest supporter of my business, and he's always trying to help me come up with ways to be more organized and streamline my processes. He's making a giant 4x4 chalkboard for me so that I can write down my orders and kick my daily to-do's in the butt! I'll post more about it when it's all finished :)
