Hello all my fellow craft storage enthusiasts! Today I’m here to share Heather Bailey’s studio, The Sugar Shop. Let me show you why I love everything she does:
With a B.A. in Apparel Design and a knack for style, Heather has run successful businesses in both women and children’s accessories. She designs fabric, sewing patterns, paper craft supplies, stationery picnicware and houseware. Just click here to hop over to Heather’s shop and all will be revealed.
Now for her studio. Like Heather’s designs, her studio is calm, serene, modern with a vintage feel and super workable.
The tall green work-island has a ton of storage, with cabinets and drawers on each side. The cabinets contain art papers, zippers, vintage linens, interfacings, unfinished quilt-tops and stationery. In one of the drawers Heather stores sketchbooks and rulers but the rest she keeps empty for quick clean-ups.
She repurposed a bookshelf by adding a base unit and repainting the poorly white washed top part – now it’s a super dooper proper dresser where she stores her art supplies, sewing notions and wool felt. The yellow boxes above hold less-frequently-used items, like velcro and grommets, linoleum blocks for stamp- carving, elastic and cording.
Most of her furniture is “homemade” – the cabinet, computer table, sewing tabletop and shelves.
What I love most is her personal touches. Just Look at this turquoise mirror. Read all about it in this post.
And she used grandmother’s old sewing notions to decorate the large frame resting on the ribbon shelf.
As this is my last post for 2014, I would like to thank you all for reading my posts throughout the year. Have a Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year. See you again around Blogland early in 2015.
