Casa de Twice Lovely

Well, It’s about monsoon storm season in Arizona.  This was very worrisome to a woman who works with wood furniture, predominantly outdoors.  We had a few days in a row of the big ol’ thunderheads rolling in by mid-afternoon, so I started pricing out canopy enclosures to be the new Twice Lovely workshop.  Those puppies are pricey!  (At least for this cheapskate…)  But my BFF Craigslist came through for me again.  I found a 10’ x 20’ (one car garage size) vented pitched roof enclosure with “windows” and everything for $150.  It was only used once and in pristine condition.  I’m a happy girl, with shade AND protection from the elements.  A fantastic business investment, if you ask me.  :)


I’d show you the inside, but I don’t want to spoil any surprises.  It’s filled with lots of goodies in various stages of completion.  :)


  1. Sweet! That would make a great paint booth! Good score!

  2. I have to paint outside too since the garage is full of my husbands toys. This is a great idea!

  3. What a great idea. I live in AZ too! I love this idea. It is way cheaper than trying to build something.

  4. Good idea! We use our garage - totally full of furniture and supplies - ugh!

  5. I need one of those! I've taken over the garage and the cars are now outside.

  6. Love that...especially since yesterday I had to haul everything off my driveway in a sudden monsoon 1/2 done...

  7. Oh man!! I'm so jealous...would love to be able to park my car in the garage again. :)

  8. Neat idea, do you have one that keeps out the Canadian bizzards in winter?? Kidding.


  9. Got room for a piano? I'd like to bring it by this weekend...

    Also the chairs for my patio is salivating for a table and chairs!


We love lovely gals showin' some love!
