    Thanks for all the nice compliments! I do use the suitcases for storage. I had a lot of fun collecting all the parts. It's funny that star quilt was at a thrift shop - I picked it up for $10 because someone had gone and sewn (badly) some blue fabric to make it into a quilt top. The blue fabric clashed w/ the nice vintage colors, so people kept passing it over. I brought it home and cut all the offending blue off! Now that I've been paying more attention to quilt patterns, I realize what an amazing piece of work it is. I think I might have to get it off the wall, or at least do it better service than push pins!

    I do love a good bargain! My husband doesn't always see where I am going with things but I get so many ideas in my head, I can see just what I want the end result to look like. My frustration comes when I can't get the "right" finished product. i.e. The cubbies were supposed to cover the star quilt wall, but we couldn't get them fastened properly for their weight (another free CL find that I painted/mod podged), so we had to use the window ledge.

    I'm sure I will change things up some, but it works for now.

    Somebody loves all things "vintage." Your room is so neat, I bet you just love being there and yes a window does help.

    What a great room. I love your painted desk and your chair. It's perfect together. The red table reminds me of my childhood. Nice work. Enjoy your room.

    Hate to be a party pooper, but it is too dark. I don't think I could create in that. But that's O.k. because diversity makes the world go round. I hope you create many beautiful things, I am sure you will.

    oh, it's totally too dark! I had to cover deep forest green paint along the bottom half of the wall. It took 2-3 coats of the brown to cover it up! We were in a hurry and I already had paint, so there it is. I love the color though; I used the same color in my bedroom.

    Your space is so "workable" and "friendly" with your upholstery, shelving, wooden organizer boxes and paint colors. I could study these photos for an hour to see what you have done with your space. It's totally and perfectly balanced to create and feel satisfied. The vintage feeling is so appropriate....wonderful job!!

    I like your studio and I am not a basement person either - I have the whole loving room - or it would be in a 'normal' persons house. The living room - the one with the couch is in a small spare bedroom with the stereo.
    Your desk painting is wonderful and I love the table.
