When we moved to the new house, I did a lot of decorating right away. Riley was a few months from being born and, in addition, my whole family was coming for Christmas. So I wanted to get as much done as possible before the baby and also have the place looking presentable for Christmas. But after those "deadlines" were hit, I sort of took a break. However, now I'm kind of getting the bug again.
So I've decided to tackle the master bathroom. It's quite large, so there's a lot to be done. I've just been waiting for some sort of idea- something to inspire me. And I found it in some clearance fabric at Joann Fabrics. It's a lovely baby blue sheer fabric with rust-colored embroidery that was on sale for $4 per yard. I just fell in love with the fabric, so I bought all that was left on the bolt, which was 6 yards. And then I bought a 6 yard curtain scarf of a rust-colored suede-y fabric. I cut and hemmed the scarf into the four curtains I needed (much cheaper than buying individual curtains!), hung them with curtain clips, and swagged the sheer fabric over the top.
My next step will be to paint the walls. I think I'll do pale blue stripes-I just love striped walls, but Jason doesn't, so I have to limit how many rooms I can do stripes. I'll post photos here of my progress!
I also did some quick little accents in the guest bedroom today. I hung some beaded garlands that have been sitting in my "decorator's closet" over the bed in a swag- can you tell I love swags? And I added the egg/nest sort of thing in the center of the shelf- a nice, springy look!
Tomorrow, maybe art or maybe more decorating- we'll see what I'm in the mood for!
