We’re in the home stretch to finishing the studio. Yesterday I dug out my desk from our garage, which may be a simple task to some, but you haven’t seen our garage. Err…the majority of you haven’t. A few neighbors who read this blog may have caught a glimpse of our pile of renovation debris (including drywall, old carpet, old baseboards, molding, insulation–it’s all piled up in our garage) when we have to open our garage and fetch something and close it as fast as we can. The garage is on our to-do list once we wrap up a few loose project ends.
All that to say, I found my desk–but not my stool that went with it. The more I thought about it, I couldn’t remember the last time I did see that stool. Not at our last apartment. Not at the one before that. Isn’t it weird when things just disappear? I gave myself a $35 budget to find a new one (Chris graciously said he’ll throw in an extra $15–ha!). Luckily, after browsing through a couple stores this morning, I found this simple counter height stool at Target for $20 (this is normally where I would link you to it on their website, but I can’t locate the exact one.)!
I assembled the stool in 20 minutes and pushed my desk over to the window. It’s my favorite place to draw. I love the light that pours in and the inspiration that I can get from staring at the mountains that are situated right outside of these windows. I can’t wait to settle in during nap times.
Although right now, there is no settling. There is no drawing or painting. I am closing this door to you until I finish the room. Hang some art and shelves and for heaven’s sake–clean up. The next time you see the studio, it will be reveal time. Get excited, friends!
