My first attempt at IKEA furniture. I purchased 2 of their Brimnes cabinets and I love them!! They were actually not hard to put together. I just opened that big intimidating bag of bits and pieces and laid them all out. The pictures were easy to follow and I’m really impressed. I see more of these cabinets in my future . . .
I decided to change the handles on the cabinets. They are 3 3/4″ center to center and I found this handles at Lowes. They are perfect!! I will say the handles that come with the cabinets are very good – they’re actually made of wood, not plastic. I just wanted to amp them up a tad 😉
Here’s the link for the cabinets – they also come in black and gray: https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/brimnes-cabinet-with-doors-black-80300660/
So I had my first studio session this last weekend. The Studio isn’t finished – but it is workable. It went great! And I can’t wait to show you pictures of Baby Vince 😉
Still need to trim out all the widows, finish the ceiling insulation, finish the ceiling with shiplap and then the floor! I’m close!! And we’re hoping for a warming trend!
I have power!!! One of the most exciting days of my “Studio” life! LOL – no more extension cord – no more cold air creeping in through the door because the extension cord is in the way! I absolutely love this wood chandelier! It’s has six lights and I put it on a dimmer switch. I did have to put it together which was a bit intimidating, but honestly it went together very easily. I found it on Amazon – here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/Pendant-6-Light-Weathered-Chandelier-Adjustable/dp/B07QMDMDBS/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&keywords=wood+chandelier&qid=1614561261&sr=8-10
This is the east side of my barn which use to be my “pumpkin patch”. My pumpkins never got very big because it just didn’t get enough sun & my kids are growing their own now – so . . . time to move on, lol. I see this space when I pull into my driveway and I wanted something to block the neighbors lean-to back there and something more pleasant to look at. Remember this is a work in progress.
So Merry Christmas to me! I purchased a Tuff Shed that arrived on Christmas Eve. It’s their Premier Pro Ranch model and it’s 12’x14′. I will use it for my photography studio. It will be so awesome not to have to set up in my living room anymore!
The Tuff Shed crew included 3 guys and from the time they started to the time they finished – this was built (windows and all) in 3 hours!
Time to start electrical and insulation . . . . 🙂
So I’m photographing a “Smash & Splash” this weekend! Found this at Costco . . . makes some awesome bubbles!
Smash = 1st Birthday Cake Smash
Splash = Bath Splash after the smashing of the cake, lol
I loveeee the curtains I purchased from Target for my studio (https://tinyurl.com/y4x2odnv). I found these stickers at Hobby Lobby and they’re removable. So when you love polka dots . . . why not add them to your walls? LOL
Also . . . notice the drawer knobs! Hobby Lobby!
So fun . . . they just make me happy!
First of all . . . I see a princess photo shoot in her future! This sweet little girl & her family came by for a visit last weekend. This gorgeous dress was given to me by a friend for my photography business (thank you Marka!!) Soooo take note of her little pink crown! Her dad made it for her on a 3D Printer!!! How cute is that!!! I’m placing an order immediately!! LOVE
Because she’s just sooooo sweet I have to plaster her all over my social media! LOL
Just gotta say . . . . it’s pretty darn cute!!!
I’m sorrryyyyy but I’m totally into Christmas/Santa mode. Doing photography forces you to plan ahead & seriously, what’s more fun than Christmas pics??!!! NOTHING! I found these ornaments at Michaels yesterday. Regular price $5 ea. but they were 40% off so I got them for $3 each. These are EXACTLY what I was looking for . . . Christmas/Santa cookies!!
They’re made of a hard rubber like material, so I used my trusty needle nose pliers and unscrewed the ornament hanger.
Oh my gosh – how cute are these???? Super Cute!! LOL Perfect for my “Red Truck Christmas Minis”!!
