Am I not the most lucky girl in the world?
Above picture is my own little craft haven in a corner of the garden.
[if you click on it, it will show you a video tour on You Tube]
We planned and had the cabin built about 5 years ago
as a playhouse for our 3 children,
where they could have their own space to do what they wanted,
it even got an upstairs sleeping area for adventures sleep overs.
They were never out of the house for a couple of years,
but after a while it was ‘old news’ and just used as a storage and dumping are..
such a shame!
So, my plan to turn it into a Garden Studio was born
It took approx 6 months of planning, decorating and organising,
it still is not finished by a long shot..
but getting there nicely!
Now.. don’t be put off by how tidy and neat it all looks,
that was just for the photo’s
I love the fact that now I have area’s dedicated to stamping, cutting and colouring,
..keeping everything I need for each area close to hand.
Like in my stamping station pic below
There even is an upstairs for more storage
and maybe some crafty sleep overs!!
All I have to do is crawl upstairs.. and drop!!
I’ve had alot of emails about the cabinets and other storage solutions
I have used and will get some photo’s up
with explaining what they are with some photo’s soon.
