Sink cabinet for my studio. Before and after!

Hello Lovelies, you may have seen 
my sink cabinet several times on this blog.
But not the whole process, from this

to this!

It is quite a transformation! Right?;)

I found this cabinet at a yard sale.
in his old life, it was a computer cabinet.
With a pull out drawer for the keyboard and some cord holes...

But the size were perfect, so I took it home for less!
No money spend on this!!!;)

And the journey for the legs begun!
And for the sink.
I got the sink at IKEA, the faucet too and some gorgeous wood legs on ebay!;)

Love this color...:)

The legs were in place and with the help of my Dad, 
we put the sink in it and 
screwed the whole thing to the wall.

Than the fun part started! PAINT;))

But something was missing...
Yes this one needed some molding and new knobs ;)
Also IKEA.

After wood glue and duct tape worked their magic, 
the fun part started! PAINT;))

And here it is in full use...

I love that I can hide the mess of dirty brushes and cloths 
between some customer appointments.
Just shut the doors and a all you see is a pretty cabinet;)

Oh, and like you see I aded some molding to the chalk wall as well.
So what do you think?

How`s your weekend looked like? - this time on tuesday...

Hello Lovelies, 
I did all of this on the last weekend, 
but had no time to blog about it;)
So, I show you today what I was up to.

It is incredibly hot around here,
 summer is finally here and we are MELTING!
Need some shade!
In our living room it´s about 36C°!

That is too much!
I decided to sew some awnings.
Measure, cut, sew, repeat... need 10 of them!

Here you can see them all ready on the left side of the room.

And the unfinished right side.

Than I thought to paint the remaining area of the roof in a creamy white, 
as heat protection.
I think it worked a little..

Here it is without paint, 

and with, can you spot the difference?

Need to do two more sides and some more coats for full coverage.

So tired from all the painting and sewing 
I went to IKEA and got this baby!;)

And literally hoarded all my stuff in it;)
No time for perfect placement, but love the look thought.
Really need to clean up a little;)

I also got a clock-wall-tattoo!

Here it is unfinished, but I can tell you it looks great on the wall!
Show you some pictures when I have better light around here..

After that I got back to my sewing machine and made two envelope pillows
For my chairs in the studio.

Cute, right?

There you can se my cute reading nook, with the white sofa...

I sold it and thought about buying a new one but instead 
I got a new couch for my living room, 
the old one was not that pretty anymore.
And it was OLD!
But some parts were quite nice.
So I ripped them apart 
and this is how my bedroom/reading nook looks like now!

I went from this

to this!

Wanna see the new bedroom couch in its full old glory?
Okay, I`ll show you!

I`m simply living on a construction site!;)
Yes there is a door in my bedroom! 
I can`t simply finish one room and be happy with it!
My head is always full of ideas and other crazy stuff, 
which need to be done;)
But I am sure, one day I will finish up this mess;)

That`s what I`ve been up to on the weekend!;)

A quick decoration update and a lovely Kitty;)

Hello Lovelies, 
today I wanted to share my old reindeer head.
This one I had in my living room.
Ii changed the space for it and put it in m new floor.
But didn`t like it much:/

So I put out my white paint and some marker in yellow and gold 
and added stripes to the antlers;)

So here it is after...

Much better:)

Thinking to paint a yellow frame around the head.
What do you think?
Should I?

And couldn`t resist and snapped some sleepy kitty pix;)

Cute right?!;)
