Progress In The Studio & A New Paint Color!

 Hello + Hello!
I'm so excited to tell you that I'm making progress again on that pesky studio of mine!
What alot of rigamaroll this has been.
I FINALLY finished painting the walls (4 coats on EVERYTHING)
I'm still working on some of the furniture etc.
I have been very excited to see the new color of
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint that was fairly recently released.
(I could've used this color a few months ago however...hurumph!)
the new color (above) is called Florence, and it's a true turquoise that harkens to
peacocks & tropical climes.
I did want to share with you the fact that I was able to start loading this old
"closet without the doors on"
with all my storage containers that I've been collecting for quite some time now.

 I have to admit, being an artist....this part of the process really sucks.
I hated every minute of it.
I know, I know..... organizational freaks out there would've loved this part.
I however, can't wait to get to the creating part!
I managed by inserting some of my favorite colorful vintage containers!
 In the end?
It turned out pretty great!
Now I have to go through the heinous task of sorting through all my craft supplies
and trying to act like I'm organized.
Oh well,
it's going to be worth it.
at least that's what I keep trying to tell myself.
(But it would be so much easier to just sit down and make a dozen fabulous somethings!)
Pray for me....
I will need patience.
Stay tuned for more progress later....
