Right now, the dining room has my full attention.
This is what it looked like 2 years ago when I first started
With a lil more TLC
The first one...a curtain.
This is sad, I know.
I put my big girl boots on and went to Jo-Ann's Fabrics Thanksgiving weekend. My partner in crime, Alyssa, was my back bone and helped me finalize all my fabric decisons.
Their home decor fabric was 50% off. So I got enough fabric to make curtains, reupholster 2 chairs, and to make seat covers for 6 dining room chairs. Pics to come...as soon as I finish them all!
It's a small window so I was having a hard time deciding what I should do with it. What do you think?
My window was exactly 46 x 46, and I made sure to leave 2 inches extra on each end to make my hem.
I don't have a sewing machine and I'm not sure Santa got my letter in time to put one under my tree. It might be a present to myself to keep me busy during tax season.
So I improvised and got some hemming tape. Ironed it on. Took some ribbon and made little loops and sewed them on the sides of the curtain. Purchased a super cheap curtain rod. Hubby placed little hooks along the inside window panel. Looped the loops around the hooks and done. Sorry I didn't take any step by step pics...but all I got right now is a camera phone. Boo.
I just got some prints in this week to frame and hang up next to the window. I can't wait to fill those walls up! The dining room is shaping up to be a horse themed room...too bad I got Derby tickets and can't host a Derby dinner in there ;)
On a few happy notes, I'm getting my new couch in today.
So out with the old
And in with the new...
I also said goodbye to my super old maroon colored Jeep Grand Cherokee this week
And hello to my new car!
I'm also getting my wedding picture disk in the mail today. Woo Hoo!!
Merry Christmas to the Dineen Family!!
Happy Wednesday! No work the rest of the week for this lil lady!
