Welcome to Sunflower Studio!

I am beside myself with excitement.  I HAVE A STUDIO.  That’s not in the basement.  Whaaaattt????

It’s beautiful and perfect in every way.  Downtown Westerly, just across from the train station and one of my all time favorite stores, Christina’s.  There’s at least 5 good restaurants within a block, and a book store and coffee shop is going in two doors down.  Pinch me.  Loads of windows.  On the second floor with great views everywhere, the best neighbor, and MY OWN BATHROOM.

So with that brief introduction to Sunflower Studio…here’s a little photo journey of the progress I’m making to get it visitor ready.

I love this old building.  Originally called the Martin House and at one time also housed the Savoy Hotel. My studio windows are just above the Professional Limo sign.

When I first bought these Container Store organizers, I loved them...but after using them for over 5 years, I realize what a pain in the neck it is to open every single drawer to find what I'm looking for.

Thanks to our neighbor, Jeff, we moved this behemoth in.  Loads of storage.

A little Annie Sloan paint with a great view.

This desk is exactly what I was looking for and with a few coats of Annie Sloan paint on the back porch…

I love how it came out and it fits the space just right.

Who says guys never read the directions?  Here's proof.  These were beastly to put together.

New Ikea cabinets are going to house oodles of beads.  Organized by color.  I'm loving this new system.

My folks sent these mid-century Knoll chairs to me recently and I think they are going to be perfect in the studio.  They'd been living in the barn for the last 20 years or so.  Love!
