My New Workspace & A Like Would Be Mighty Fine!

Monday, October 28, 2013

Okay, I have to tell you that good things are happening over here and I'm so so so excited and so very thankful! I can't wait to share everything with you.

I'm keeping a lot of the goings-on close to me for now, sorry, I know, so not fair, but I promise to fill you in soon.

I am going to give you a sneak peek of one of them.  My workspace.  Giddy up, friends!  I'm super happy with how it's looking so far.

I ended up buying this table from Ikea for a couple of reasons.  Two of them being affordability and looks.  I looove the legs.  I really wanted something simple and "light" in terms of looks.  I have to give kudos to Ikea.  The shipping was super fast (ordered and arrived in a week) and well priced (under $20, shipped via FedEx).  Thank you Ikea.

I didn't order a chair because I wasn't able to find anything that I loved.  Thank goodness, because look:

Yes, that's Grandma's chair that I reupholstered. It.fits.perfectly.  How about that and how about those desk legs?!

And honestly, how cute are these elephant bookends that I picked up from Homesense?

They were glossy black, but I really wanted them to be white.  So I just gave them a quick coat of spray paint. Voila!

Second thing that I can share.  Elliven Studio is now on facebook.  About time huh?!

Now I know going around asking for "likes" isn't very fashionable, but sorry I am going to do it just this once.  If you wouldn't mind giving my page a like, I'd very much appreciate it.  I will be sharing photos, links, inspiration and such.  Likety, like, like. Pretty please.  xo thanks!

Also happening....I'm transitioning from "elliven" to "elliven studio" which explains the blog header.  I have plans to get a logo and to do some branding here, but that's on the back burner for now.  Another change, look up at the address bar. That's right...bye bye you're now at  Big time!  It's taking me a little bit of time to get things sorted as I'm learning as I go, so I apologize if there are any issues.

Phew. Have a wonderful week!
