Shabby Farmhouse Style Of Organized At Home – Work Station

Shabby Farmhouse Style Of Organized At Home – Work Station


I love to sketch some interior of one area, or one room or simply one function. This a small functional area at home that I had in mind. A work station, yes, an area that often neglected in term of home decor or styling. Actually, work station at home is a very significant place for us to gain our creativity, inspiration, and mood. For me, a work station should be:

1. Organized and in-order

So it would not be difficult to work; like finding things we need, finding un-clutter space to work,  bring some peaceful mind to work. So here’s what to do:

  • Tidy up your working station, organized your stuff and keep it in wall organizer, drawer, boxes, etc.
  • Organized your activity every day, like making a to-do list, reminders and organized it on wall boards.
  • Always leave enough empty space in your desk, do not stack all your stuff on your desk, leave some room for your creativity to take the stage.


2. Beautiful and stylish

This is the most important ingredient in mood and inspiration recipe. Great looking work station and personal favorite touch will boost your creativity; well at least I do. so, style your work station with your favorite things, colors, patterns, style. in the end, your very personal touch will shown on your at home – work station.



In my design of this mini at home-work station, I choose to finish it with blue shabby farmhouse style. It is calm and sweet with the shabby touch and have strong character from the rustic look of farmhouse style.

The drawing is using drawing pen that I finished with watercolor pencil. It is a drawing that you can add anything later to expand the design of the room. Well, maybe I will do that someday 🙂


Well, I hope you enjoy my design of this small area of organized at home – work station with shabby farmhouse style.

DIY Blue Hydrangea Oil Painting for Home Decoration – First Attempt

DIY Blue Hydrangea Oil Painting for Home Decoration – First Attempt

When I was a little, my mom used to have blue hydrangea at our backyard. I love this flower, it looks so elegant yet calm. I always want to grow one but I can’t, because sadly, the city I live in is too hot to have a hydrangea to bloom. So I guess that is one of the reason I’ve been longing to paint a Hydrangea. And i also been dying to try oil painting. So, eventually i have a courage and time to try my first attempt  on oil painting of blue Hydrangea that i can proudly used for my home decoration.


Besides roses, hydrangea always look good as a vintage flower, and it’s also one of the most flower to be used by designers to decorate interior. Don’t believe me? Start pay attention to any decor or interior magazines, etc; you will find lots of Hydrangea as an interior decor element.

The gradations of the flowers in one stalk is so beautiful and unique. And it has so many variations in color; such as blue, purple, pink, green, white and etc. It’s presence can elevate the room’s interior into more high-end look.

Well, enough of my praises to Hydrangea, let me show you my blue hydrangea oil painting.


I was starting to paint with dark blue and dark purple, then slowly I paint it with lighter and lighter blue to get the 3 dimensional look. Same with the leaves. But to me, coloring a leaf always the hardest part, you have to get the perfect gradation and mixed of colors to make the leaf alive. But i’m quite pleased with the result, considering this is my first attempt on oil painting.


To achieve this blue Hydrangea painting, I used phthalo blue, cerulean blue, ultramarine blue, titanium white, magenta, sap green, lemon yellow and black. I’m a newbie in oil painting, so i just used colors i have from whatever inside the box of a cheap oil colors.


Finally, I get to try to paint with oil colors and paint a blue hydrangea. This painting will definitely become one of my personal best home decoration. Do you want to try yourself? Pick one of your own favorite flower to paint with, then it can become a spring decoration that you would proud of and a piece to talk about.

Note: Thanks for Paint Party Friday and Try it on Tuesday for letting me joining your wonderful site.

Welcome to creative spring!

Different color will definitely brings different mood. Not much need to be changed, just look for blue things in your home that can be used to accentuate your desk into blue atmosphere.
