Studio Sneak Peek...








Photobucket 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

This is too adorable! I love the drum you are sitting on. I also love your hair in this, I wish I could part my hair down the middle (darn cowlick!). I'm so glad I found your blog =]

Haha! Great post Ally :) Came here after reading your exciting ModCloth post and couldn't help but leave my two cents here, as I too have recently put together two bedside tables from Ikea (although I had assistance at the store with the flat pack lifting!). I am STILL looking for my perfect vintage desk for my crafting corner...

Anyway, your studio looks great! And well done on your Ikea success - the furniture may feel slightly less 'soulful' than a vintage piece, but it's what you put on and around it that make the place unique and wonderful! :)
