A studio all of my own......

Well at last I have a space to call my own..... I ended up looking for a studio space in the village where Danny man will be attending playgroup and then school so that I can be very local and save on fuel travelling to and fro when I drop him off. It was a casual remark to a friend that found me this place, and I know it isn't huge but it is a place to call my own.... even though I have to share it with Mr P as his office too.....Yeah right!

This is a little hallway that the previous tenant used as a waiting room, I think she was a beautician.... its a little chilly as the big wooden door fits where it touches and is a little draughty, but I will put making a draught excluder to the top of my list!

This is the main room, its all newly decorated, the door has a habit of swinging closed all by its self, so I will have to make a pretty doorstop for that.... mind you I will be keeping it closed till the warmer weather gets here...

Sorry about the fuzzy photo, this is where my desk / work table will be....
On the opposite wall to the window are 2 chairs my mum has let me borrow, they make a comfy little settee when pushed together and they are a perfect day bed for Danny.... just in case he gets back from playgroup and is in need of some r & r...... or if I fancy a quiet sit to do a little hooking perhaps!

And the first bit to be organised is the canteen! lol
The cupboards have been duly filled with wool and fabrics and the cupboard in the wall is home to my acrylics, watercolours and any other bits and pieces I have squirreled away at home....

Well once I have sourced the perfect desk / work table I will be all set....
My own little bolt hole, a much needed piece of heaven to make being a mum, cleaner, laundress, agony aunt, chauffeur and cook all the more bearable...

Take care
Alex

Gosh! It's soooo exciting. I bet you'll never want to leave. I notice you've hogged all the cupboard space for essentials. No room for boring paper work. Good girl!

It looks like you have just the place for yourself! I love the window and how it has a great shelf area under it. The yellow/cream is a nice soothing color also.
