Firstly, I added some IKEA trones (shoutout to Austen for this hack) for storage below my bridle rack and added a 2x2 shelf.
Then, I built a "counter" from scrap wood. This area is great for holding miscellaneous things and helping to prepare supplements and meds.
|Silly little clock has been in my life since I was in elementary school.|
Cross stitch was a gift from my late grandmother decades ago.
I also tossed a couple brackets and another scrap piece of wood above the door for additional storage. I've yet to do much more than hap-hazardly toss things up there, but I'm grateful for the space to do so!
And, finally, the largest change to-date - I finally got a couch!
While the red is a nice burst of color, the fabric of the couch doesn't lend itself to wanting to stay clean well, so I tossed a cover I had hanging around from a past apartment on it to help preserve it amidst the daily abuse that comes with being around horse tack, feed, and barn accouterments.
With any luck, I'll hopefully get the windows and door framed out before winter ends. I'm obviously not in a huge rush, but I am very much looking forward to the finished look that this will give the space. If I put it off much longer, my woodworking ladyfriend may do it for me! Fingers crossed? Lol
Stay tuned for continual updates to this little space. It's the ultimate She Shed and I look forward to making it more homey over time.
