$20 Vintage Industrial Office

Most of you know that I will paint pretty much everything in sight if it hangs around too long. Even stuff that other furniture painters will pass on. My favorite saying is “paint hides a lot of ugly” so when we bought a ton of office furniture from a machine shop auction I ended up with some extremely cheap (practically free) items that I wouldn’t have normally chosen. These items sat in storage for a couple of months until we got the studio and then I had an ah-ha moment…paint all of the ugly, boring office furniture crazy funky colors. It’s an art studio so pretty much anything (and color) goes.

DIY Custom Burlap Memo Board

We have so many things to finish at the new studio, but it gives us a chance to blog about some easy DIY projects. This particular one was inspired by a pin found on Pinterest by Two Twenty One. My was just a wee bit different. You know I have to be different. I couldn’t simply follow the instructions. I always need to reinvent the wheel. So here is what I did…

DIY memo board

1. 1 Yard Burlap Fabric…I had some left over burlap fabric with super cute white dots that I’m using for my cornice boards (posting later this week)

2. I bought a cheap cork board in Jo-Anns (with coupon $7)

3. Then I cut the burlap to size allowing for enough to wrap to the back of the frame.

4. Apply Mod Podge over the entire cork board including the frame.

5. Place fabric over cork board. Smooth out fabric. Allow a few minutes to dry.

6. Tack in nail heads skipping space equal to size one nail head. I laid one in between for easy guide. I used some french nail heads from a previous headboard project. They were WAY too long, but I wasn’t about to buy more when I have a 1,000 of these left over.

7. Apply more Mod Podge to top of fabric. Allowed to dry.

8. Staple the fabric to the back side of frame with staple gun.

9. Cut off excess nail on nail head. If you’re using normal size nail head or tacks this step in not necessary. I’m just frugal and use what I have lying around.

10. Pin stuff on board (old school style) and enjoy!

Our New Studio

After months of searching we have finally found our new headquarters. It’s small and in the most unlikely of places but, I love it and I hope y’all will too. Its located in the teeny-tiny (seriously tiny, don’t blink kind of tiny ) Downtown Ocoee. I’m sure everyone has heard of it right? I wouldn’t call it a booming town center at all, but its quaint and charming (lest I remind you that I see potential in things that no one else does…duh… I’m a junker) but none the less, I think it does. Call me a daydream believer if you may, but it’s there, I tell ya.

Anyhoo…we were driving around looking for leasable space when we turned down a street that I have never been down. I spotted this little building and said look! Its perfect. It didn’t have any signage saying it was available, so I assumed it wasn’t.

There was also a space with big storefront windows and a turquoise (fave color) ceiling that was a pawn shop, although I had never seen it open in the year I’ve been here. I went to ask about a storefront and I described what I was looking for …a workshop space with a small showroom area…and most important…AC. Guess where he took me? The little building I mentioned earlier. Now a normal person would have said yes, this is perfect, but of course I like to complicate matters so I asked to looked at the storefront location as well.  I pondered it a couple of days and finally my friend said “I’m giving you until the end of the week to make a decision.” Basically she was saying. “I’m tired of hearing you talk about it, get it done!!”

So I took my friend and personal advisor (aka Jules) to see both spaces and do you know what she said? “Well clearly the studio is the one, duh!” At that point all the stars aligned and the angels sang and I was hurdling headlong into another big adventure, but not too big. I have very consciously tried to keep my big dreams from becoming overwhelming ones, as they have in the past. This time I’m going for manageable dreams.

So here it is…manageable…well, sort of…we all know that I can over complicate anything, but I’m really going to try to keep it simple…a studio that I can work from to supply all of my vintage booths and a place that I can host occasional sales. Yep, and I’m going to invite some of my other friends that are vintage dealers, artists and jewelry makers and we are going to throw some major shin-digs Ocoee style, lol.

As you can see I’ve done a little painting already. It needed a girls touch and a little bit of turquoise!

Gypsy Dreamin’

We’ve been seeing a lot of red lately…specifically…Emperor’s Silk Red by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. If you haven’t already noticed, I really love red and turquoise and once again have gone a little crazy with it. I’m pretty sure they have hidden the red paint from me now.
