Where Beauty is Created...

so it's finally done enough that i dare share...

now remember...

my house is over a hundred years old...

i wish this space looked as beautiful as tracey's and jeanne's...

but...sigh...i married a farmer...

so i keep dreaming ;0)...

and i create here...


Photobucket

don't you just love these metal stencils...

sigh...*thank you tracey*...

did you notice my string holder...

it is an old copper funnel...i think i may have to hang it somewhere...but right now it sits on my vintage paper cutter...




Photobucket

little corner that holds my supplies for my mixed media and altered art...{..have some projects to share from my artist classes soon..}



Photobucket


this counter was built by mr. prairie...*love it...oh and mr. prairie too...*

it goes the length of the room...is just the right height...and is fabulous when cutting fabric..

the rod for my drop cloth curtain is metal pipe...

*love it*...*thank you brother in law*

no pictures of what is hidden behind the curtain...

didn't want to scare you away...

seriously...scary...


Photobucket

just a few vintage clock faces to keep me company...

Photobucket


these came from the barnhouse boys...

will have to show you what i intend to do with them...think altered art...meets industrial farm...

speaking of barnhouse boys...would anyone like to join me may 8th for their opening...

so want to go...

sigh...mr. prairie can't go with me...

not sure i want him to go...he is soooo practical...which translates into *no fun on shopping trips*

so...let me know...



Photobucket


so that is where i create...

it still needs some work...but right now this prairie girl is happy...

Are you kidding me! That room is worthy of your own Country Living feature. Honestly, the stencils, that burlap banner..what are the flowers made of? Muslin? or paper? Now lets talk about that chair, the light cages, oh my Kristin that's what I call farm living! Lisa

Tracey said...

Kristin, girl, I don't know why you've been hesitant to show this incredible space...it is amazing!!! I truly love it and all of it's fabulous vintage appeal!!! The stencils turned out sooooooo great! You've got a real talent for putting a space together!

Wish I could join you in May, but I'm really hoping to go to the Farm Chicks Show in June...wanna come??!

Seriously wonderful ~

Wraylee said...

The very first thing I noticed is your barn wood sewing table! It is simply FABULOUS and your room is gorgeous. I love the slanted ceilings, just like in my old farm house. Old farm homes have such great charecter, we are lucky to enjoy them!

Tara said...

Kristin, your space is gorgeous, I don't know why you were reluctant to show this to us...I love all the old metal baskets and the table is gorgeous!! You certainly have some talent my dear! xo

Lissa said...

paintchipgirl said...

Mmmmm...your creative space is so yummy! Happy to have found this little gem of a blog, today. Nice to meet you.:)

Fawn Hamilton said...

oh, your studio is fabulous!!! Really I love it!! The white on white is to die for! And your photo skills! Wonderful! Love how you snapped those clock photos. Very nice! Any pointers for me?)
My studio seems to be ever evolving so Ive haven't shown photos of it yet..someday though. Its about to undergo another major overhaul after consolidating two houses into one. Yikes..the stuff i never knew i had!

Fawn Hamilton said...

oh btw, I would've LOVED to have gone to the Barn Boys sale with you but I think their about a million miles away from me...another sigh! Maybe I can make a trip of it one weekend and hit a bunch of to drool for shops after we visit The Barn Boys.
Man I'm so jealous you live so close and can go to their sales! Are they as fabulous as they look? I bet even better!

Martha said...

your space is BEAUTIFUL!!! I love what you have done and I think it's perfect!!!

Shelley in SC said...

I just love your style. I love the rustic . . . the worn out . . . so unique and bold and gorgeous! Thanks for sharing your inspiring space.

Lindsey said...

Oooh. I love this. Will you come decorate my new house...I'm feeling a bit intimidated.
