What I Wish People Knew About...Having a Workshop / Art Studio Separate From the House

What I Wish People Knew About...Having a Workshop / Art Studio Separate From the House

Happy Wednesday, friends!

I'm so glad you're here today. Today's post is a video from one of my favorite woodworkers / artists, Jon Peters.

Before my husband and I starting building our own furniture, we found Jon on You Tube and started watching his videos each week.  And guess what, we still watch his videos together each week - they are so educational for us, but also interesting and entertaining!

I love a good challenge.  Especially when I know I can get it done fairly quickly.

My sweet aunt needed a magazine holder for her bathroom.  Because ya’ll have to have something to read while you’re in there.

She sent me a few pictures of things she had picked up at the store.

It’s Monday! If you love breakfast as much as I do, you will love our newest wood table build.

When I say newest build, I mean the most recent thing we have built before we started our l o n g kitchen project.  Read about our latest kitchen updates, here. (Be sure to follow greywoodmama on Instagram for behind the scenes updates!)

A breakfast table.  Yep, it’s only for breakfast. Kidding, it gets used for everything. I’m still calling it a breakfast table, tough.

Finally, shiplap!

So, you know those people JoJo and Chip Gaines?  Well, they among a full list of others really inspired me to try out some shiplap.  It’s beautiful. It looks easy to install and it’s ‘modern farmhouse’.

The problem was, I really didn’t know where I wanted it. Bathroom? Living room? Kitchen?  Well, we finally decided to redo our kitchen, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want shiplap in their kitchen?
