For some reason when I read other blogs my favorite posts are the ones that showcase the author's living and/or work space. Maybe it's my love of interior design or the fact that it seems to give a much more intimate look at the author, which makes you feel closer as a reader. I don't know about you, but I definitely prefer reading blogs that make me feel like the person I'm reading about is a close friend.
Now, most of the room tours I've seen the space is stunning and spotless and it gives you magnificent ideas on how to style your own bedroom/kitchen/office/shop. Well, since the purpose of my blog is to document my shop's progression I thought it reasonable to show how my storage space looks right now. I'm currently using our guest bedroom, which still houses a queen size bed, dresser, and all the knick-knacks I didn't have room for anywhere else. The nicest possible term I can think to describe the situation is Organized Chaos.
The rack is currently blocking the closet, where I hang most of the garments and bags for the shop (along with my own collection of purses I cannot fit into my bedroom. Perhaps I have a problem with clutter?) The doors are painted a clean shade of white and have nice shutter like details, so they make a great backdrop for the photos of the clothing.
So there you have it, the current, embarrassing state of Giddy Canary. I'm a firm believer that creating an organized and serious work space is the first step towards success. I still have a lot of work to do, but I think just having access to this space is valuable to realizing my dream.
