New Goodies & Art Studio Update

Look at my new goodies! I made a trip into town yesterday and bought myself some new paint brushes at Blick. Aren't they beauties? Although, I always think they look better once they've been used and have touches of paint stained on them.

I wanted to share some more pictures of my art studio that has come together enough for me to work in. 

view into studio and pretty much the final layout

even got to work in it the other day, yippee!!

I've been slowly adding things that I like to make it cozy.
I've need more work to be done as far as getting it to reflect my style, but these colored bottles are a start. Aren't they pretty in the light? This window looks out to my lake and koi pond. I added a plant that needs a little tlc.

Remember the re-purposed TV cabinet? Well it needed a couple more shelves, so my hubby made them for me. Can't tell they weren't always there, can you? It is serving now as my flat file. Someday I hope to get a real flat file, but this will do for now. And do you know I cannot find these great little plastic drawers anywhere? Glad I've got these. I used to get them at the Dollar Store for five bucks, but not anymore. They are so handy for the small stuff.

Here is the cabinet before, perfectly fine but...
Isn't this even better?! 4 more shelves were added

I'll show more later... I've got more painting to do!!

Have a great weekend!
