Started out with an Office. Ended up with a Boutique
What an awesome morning! I love when I get something done that wasn't even planned. This morning I walked into the studio, just to get a glimpse of my new doll. I got the bright idea to set up her office. I was going to make her the town psychiatrist. I cleared out the area that I was intending to use. Within minutes I had changed my mind and decided to transform the space into the Langford's dining room. I have been planning to have a family dinner for that family for over a month. I got the dining room table in place, and just that quick, I changed my mind again. I think BB 2.5 was whispering in my ear, "boutique, boutique", because I have no idea where this idea came from. It wasn't even on my long list of things to do. So I am patting myself on the back for pulling it together so quickly. Within an hour I had what you see below. Of course this is just the rough cut. Many changes have to happen, but I am pleased with it so far. I knew taking the time to get organized these past few months would pay off. I was able to go right to everything that I needed. Sorry for the poorly lit pictures. This is on a very dark side of my studio. I will have to add interior lighting to the room.
This is the left side of the boutique. I may be adding some wallpaper. There will probably be a full length mirror on the left hand wall. The white hat will disappear when I get something nice to put in it's place.
This is the center. I will be painting the purple on the little stand. The pictures on the wall are note cards from Target. The $1 section, of course.
This is the shoe area. The blue will be painted another color. I haven't decided what yet. Not sure if that chair will stay, but there will be a chair of some sort in the space.
Shoes, glorious, shoes!
I am not a big shoe person, but I was definitely hyperventilating as I was putting these on the shelf. These are some bada__ shoes. I can't wait to get my Target accessory pack. I need some red shoes on this wall.
Look at these shoes! You go Mattel.
Everything in here is just a place holder. It will be totally revamped with some really nice stuff.
I have been carrying these stockings around for years, but they have never been on display.... til now.
Every woman needs a nice pair of shades.
The flooring was my bright idea of the day. It is actually just designer office folders. I had to move one of my used folders and just like that I thought of flooring. I have so many extra folders, it was a perfect choice. The green is just the inside of the folder.
Here she is (still nameless) in her sweats from (whitesquirrel on Etsy). She needed to be comfortable because she knew she would be working all day in the shop. She is exhausted now. By the way, she is on her new Pop Life body. Poor thing only had her original body for one day. Don't worry. Halle is very happy with her exchanged body.
The baby (nameless, too) did fairly well, but now she is hungry and sleepy. Since they are new in town, mom didn't want to leave the baby with anyone just yet. The next post will give a little background about her.
She wonders what her husband is doing. He is still in Atlanta, finishing up business. They decided to make the move to Virginia to be closer to family. They wanted the baby to know her relatives. Nothing like being close to grandma. She is hopeful that he will arrive soon.
