ellyn's NEW place!

Well it's official! We're moving into a new house.... just over a mile from our current home. We're downsizing a bit and the new house is all on one story, which is wonderful news for my achy knees. The most exciting part of this is a studio makeover for me! We have a couple of weeks before we move everything in, plenty of time to get things ready. Here's my new space before any changes....
 Three big windows AND a skylight! Lots of natural light!
 Beautiful french doors that open right up to the main living space. LOVE!

 I've been seeing these IKEA Raskog carts in everyone's studios all over instagram. Had to have one! Yesterday I put it together and I must say I love it. Can see so many uses for it! And the color! It will be perfect in my new space.
 Today the painters came....
And this lovely pale aqua (not true color here as it was getting dark when I took the shot) is exactly what I wanted!

I can't wait to share all of the updates with you as we go. But I thought you deserved to know why there hasn't been any sewing going on at ellyn's place these days. Stay tuned!

Wow!! can't wait to see more of it. Gorgeous color! and I too want one of those carts but have nowhere to put it right now. Once I get my sewing room straightened out, I'll be getting myself one.

I don't envy the fact that you are moving, although a new studio space sounds like fun. I just bought that same IKEA cart a couple of weeks ago. I don't have it all arranged yet, but I think it will be great when I do. Can't wait to hear all about your new place.
