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!
