Studio Sneak Peek...
I spent my Saturday putting together this Ikea desk! and id have to say i am pretty proud that i didn't have a screaming "i can't do this" fit and managed to use every nail (normally i finish an Ikea piece and end up with a few random nails and im left wondering hmmm where were these supposed to go!) i spent so long looking for the perfect vintage desk i even almost had one only to be outbid at the last minute (sob) after several desk heartbreaks i took a look at my sad sad empty studio and decided to just suck it up and go to Ikea!
I am a little daft sometimes and head into things usually with extreme positivity (which usually makes for good stories later) Of course i can go to Ikea and lift two heavy flat packs by myself onto a trollie and it will definately fit into my tiny Getz through the passenger side (the manly Ikea helper looked at me like i was crazy when i told him to think of it like tetris)...and of course i can drive home mostly in fourth gear because the flat pack is squashing my gear stick! But lo and behold it was done!!!
After all this i figured i would share a few snaps of the newly organised studio, The drum was mine as a child and i have managed to drag it around with me in semi-good nick, im hoping to do a little DIY on it later on...It is definately a work in progress and i cant wait to get a fancy rug and a few more pictures for the walls but im pretty in love with it so far XX
