Happy Monday!! Welcome to new readers and thank you for being here!
Yesterday was a super day for a lot of people due to the Superbowl. To me it was super because it was super productive!! It seems we have been stuck in a rut here with getting any projects done but somehow yesterday fate stepped in and we were on a roll!
We printed up, framed and hung some of the black and white pics for our photo wall. We will be adding to it as I find frames that I love as I don't want to fill up the space without much thought just to make it look "finished". I had a lot more hanging there but took it down because it just didn't look like "me". It looked rushed and crowded and kind of cheap. I'm waiting for a cute, gold, letter "O" to come from Ballard and I'm sure I will find lovely things as I'm out and about. I usually find them when I'm not actively looking! For now it may look sparse but it is a good template to build on.
Our drop cloth curtains are hung and I love them! They washed and ironed beautifully and I love the way they drape. I just bought 3~ 6' by 9' panels and used curtain clips to hang them from my existing rods. I spent $43.00 for the whole project. $27 for the panels and $21 for clips.
And found the paint to fix the scratches in the living room. We cleaned the dining room floors and had a lovely Sunday dinner in there. We don't use it often enough and I plan on fixing that! New curtains, a fresh coat of paint and some pretty accessories will make it more inviting. We have such a pretty view of the backyard from that room, I really want to enjoy it more. And there's nothing like everyone sitting down together for a good meal and conversation. We are hoping to take out the windows in that room to replace them with French doors that will lead to a brick patio. Now that would really make it more inviting!!
