It’s cold in the north… very cold! But that’s okay because I’m updating my studio, and this craft room remodel is keeping me busy in my cozy, happy space. I’ve spent the past couple months organizing, sorting, adding in new furniture, and decorating my space. I painted the walls bright white, and Hubby helped me add lights, lights, and more lights.
All of the new furniture I added to my room is from Ikea. I am in love with Ikea Kallax and Alex units; they are minimalistic, sturdy, and functional. (If you want to see more about my craft room remodel, you can take a look here.) They also make a perfect canvas for a little personalization with vinyl.
Next to my work desk resides my Zing Orbit (or original Zing) on top of one of the Alex six-drawer units. This sits out in my room in such a way that the back of the drawer unit shows. This large, smooth white surface was begging for some vinyl… and I was happy to oblige.
I used my “Create Joy” file with black for the outlines and gold for the fill. It turned out well, but I thought it still needed something. So, I used Inkscape’s inset command (I usually design in Inkscape, but you could use MTC or SCAL for the inset) to cut a yellow piece slightly smaller than the gold. The gold gives a little extra bling around the yellow.
After decorating the back of the drawer unit, I decided the face of the drawers needed a little love. If you’d like the SVG (no font included) click here.
Next, on to the sewing area for a little flower embellishment on my Ikea Finthorp” condiment and utensil” buckets.
And finally, tiny squiggles on my not for cosmetics… “cosmetic organizer”.
