Thrift Store Treasure: Repurposed Elephants by Foxfires
Thrift Store Treasure: Repurposed Elephants
Hey all!  I found this fantastic old wooden wall plaque showing a charming elephant scene all carved so beautifully.   The wood was faded to grey with time, and even the elephants looked a bit disgruntled.  But, for $5.00 - I knew exactly what I was going to do!  I stopped off at the craft store to add a few colors to my paint supply, and to get a few new fine tipped brushes.  Then I went to work.  I spent a wonderful afternoon painting these lovely elephants as if they were preparing to take part in a parade in India somewhere!  Such fun, and I think they all look a little happier for it!

Inside my studio... by Foxfires
Inside my studio...
...on a cold, snowy winter's night.

EDIT x2:  Holy cats - I got a DD?!? LOL  THANK YOU!!!!  I just now saw this!!!  I will make sure to get back to everyone ASAP!!  

EDIT:  Wow I had no idea I would receive such a wonderful response to this!  Thank you, all!
Here are a few things about the room:  I used sarees from India to drap and create the tent ceiling.  You can find vintage/used sarees like this on eBay for excellent prices, and since each one is about 5 or 6 yards of fabric, each one covers a LOT of space!

I am a thrift store junky, and always have my eye out for a good deal.  Probably 90% of what you see in this photo was found at thrift stores, or bought on super clearance.  Some things I repurpose, paint over, make into things they weren't originally meant to be.  That's what gives it the eclectic look.  I then mix in my personal artwork (the pillow on the chair is my art), and some precious things I've purchased over the years or bought when I was traveling.

The scale of the room is a bit deceiving.  Everything except to chest-of-drawers is meant to be reachable when sitting on the floor.  The little table is only about 10 inches high.  My desk is made out of long planks of hardwood sitting on top of planters that I filled with books that I wanted to store, and it too can be sat at with just a cushion.  The chair I found has very tiny legs so that works perfectly for when I am working for long periods of time.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!  Thanks for all your lovely comments!
