It's been a bit silent on this blog recently because I've been a bit busy.  If you have been reading my blog for a while you know that I had the opportunity to rent a little studio last year.  Sadly, the big-style collapse of our car just before Christmas left us with a studio/car dilemma which was obviously resolved in favour of a car.  C'est la vie.  I feel so lucky to have been able to try the studio experiment - it was just lovely to have a space of my own where I never had to tidy up in order to get the dinner on!  I just couldn't justify the indulgence though.

All is not lost!  We are kind of shoe-horned into our house, but we have a walk-in cupboard off the dining room that once looked like this...

Spot the family height marks - if we ever move I will have to tear off the doorframe.

A lot of relocation of stuff, a bit of work,  a table made out of two old wardrobe shelves, and it now looks like this!



It's 97 centimetres wide but it's a palace to me!

  2. Wonderful Catherine and having the creative hub in the thick of things actually has many advantages too. Even though I'm lucky to have a room to use, I often find myself cutting on the dining/kitchen table with everyone around. Your little alcove looks so neat and you can now leave the machine out along with bits and pieces of fabric around and still have a clear family table! Just one question-where's the fridge?!

  5. What a great use of space. I have an cheap old wardrobe that is no longer practical for our needs, and I would like to turn it into new piece of practical furniture, too.

  9. It looks great, so well organised! Will it stay like that or are you someone who will spill out? And as much as a larger away from interruptions space must have been great, I'm sure if I ever got that (ha!), I would miss being around everyone at home.
