Ladder, Hammer, Nail, Vintage Metal Sign...Done!

Pin It


As promised, here are more photos of the space over the studio closet. And the quick story about its transformation. Here is what it looked like to start...


I first pulled out my trusty antique ladder. Antiques are not just for looking at in this cottage! They get put to use on a daily basis!!


I climbed up with a hammer in one hand in a single nail in the other. I eyeballed the location of the nail to line up with the center of the closet doors. Tap. Tap. Tap. Then I hung an awesome vintage metal sign. The space went from this...


to this...


I bought the sign from my vendor friend, Cindi@The Nature of It, at A Gathering of Friends last year. She always has amazing things that fit with my cottage style!! The theme of the sign actually hints at the many purposes of this space. It's my home office, DIY supply store, and creative studio all in one! It's a perfect fit.


As small as this space is, there is still another side of the room you haven't seen! The makeover continues!

  9. When I saw that sign is your other post, I thought to myself the very same thing. You couldn't have had one painted to sum up what this room will do...that's why I have sign envy!
