I’m all about breathing new life into old things. If it has good bones, the possibilities are endless! Folding baskets might scream “Granny!” but I love what some Etsy sellers are doing to freshen their image, making them prime real estate for WIPs!
The Divine Chair, Belle $2,000.00
Those wanting to add a practical pop of color and touch of whimsey to your nook, look no further than The Divine Chair!
Kitty McBride refurbishes and reupholsters chairs of yore and turns them into strikingly visual masterpieces for your home… and rump!
Moving day is here! There’s still lots of packing to do but I can’t resist taking a break to peruse the internet for more future nook decor.
I have a funny feeling I’m not the only knitter who’s been drooling over IKEA’s EDLAND linen cabinet. Actually, I’m amazed it took me this long to post about it!
EDLAND meets all my needs for yarn storage; inspired vintage design, glass doors (so I can see my stash) and a pull out drawer to hide leftover yarn, rogue knitting needles, etc… I’m also smitten with those teardrop knobs! (It’s the little things)
Me and the Mister will be taking a trip to IKEA in the near future and all I can say is EDLAND will be mine… it WILL be mine!
Knitters who podcast may agree: having the right tools and a space to record is half the battle. Recording decent sound quality is a whole other issue!
While not everyone can afford a professional microphone or recording studio, some of the best knitting podcasts are done on a shoe string budget! Sound doesn’t have to be perfect, but anything you can do to eliminate annoying elements, like echoes, will make your show a more enjoyable listen!
Thankfully, there are several ways to reduce echoes, like stapling egg crates to the wall! If thats not what you had in mind, then check out this nifty tutorial posted on Craftzine.com! (Originally podted on Our First Cottage.) They’re fun and easy to make… Not to mention budget friendly!
Hang a few of these on the wall(s) of your knit nook, maybe throw down an area rug and it doubles as a functional and very stylish recording booth!
Lots of people dream of a custom built-in shoe closet, but I imagine a custom built-in knitting nook is on most knitters’ wishlists. I love how the shelf breaks up the cubbyholes midway making room for Tayler’s knitting tools and magazines. Her husband and dad added another personal touch by engraving into the wood when it was built! Very cool!
