It is time for the big studio reveal! Just a few days ago, I posted about decorating an adorable space for Christmas and it is now done. I think I need some toothpicks in my eyes to keep myself awake as I have been thinking and dreaming non-stop about this decorating for the last several days. When I haven’t been thinking about it, I have been putting the pieces together, cutting ribbon, stringing lights, covering myself and everything else in glitter, and having a holly jolly time.
When I set to work creating a space, I try to envision what I want it to look like when it is done, but most of the time, I just go with the flow and let inspiration take over. I had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted for this space, but when you are working on a very limited budget and trying to use as much thrift store goodness as you can, you have to learn to be creative and improvise. I find my inspiration while perusing the shelves and aisles of the local thrift stores and big box stores. I rarely buy anything that is already created, but instead find bits and pieces of things that I can put together in whatever why the spirit moves. I prefer originals instead of something right out of the box!
When I walked into the studio a couple of days ago to start the decorating this is what it looked like…
Because of the bright colors in the space, I decided to use equally bright Christmas decor. Traditional red and green just would not work in this place! To make it pop, I went away from the traditional green tree to a much more whimsical all white tree. And I am so glad I did. The bright colors pop right off the tree and add so much drama. To say I am in love with this tree is a complete understatement!
Are you ready for this? I am so excited to reveal this! I wish you could all see it in person because it is so much fun, but pictures will have to suffice…
Seriously, that white tree is amazing! I had no idea when I bought it at Wal-mart for $40.00 just how much I would love it, but I LOVE IT!!
Want the grand total of what I spent on EVERYTHING?
This includes the tree, all decor, ornaments, art, a door wreath, and ALL!
Tomorrow I will show pictures of all the detail shots from the space so you can get up close and personal with all the goodies 🙂
