Tryin' to Decorate!
SO here's what I did. :)
My dining room was just a dark redish brown room with no pictures on our biggest wall. I can't afford a buffet or any more furniture right now so I framed some old calendar pages that my sister-in-law found at a flea market and this is what I did. You can't really see the detail, but they are fruit botanicals. An improvement, but still a little plain. Don't you think?
I think it looks ok. I still have no curtains in this room and I sometimes think it's too dark, but the pics lightened it up a bit with the beige mats. Any thoughts?
I also had some towels hanging over the toilet in my downstairs bath and I was tired of it. SO I found some bird pictures and these little glass plate things that look old and have ribbons for hangers. Here's what it looks like.
There is a blank wall to the right of it, and my six year old (with HER expert decorator advice!) thinks I should move it all to the blank wall. I also found a nest that has pretty eggs in it and I want to find a little shelf for it. There are lots of bird things out there now so I could go crazy!!
This is fun! My poor husband. I can't get too sassy yet! He might seriously kill me. Well... at least give me the evil how-much-money-did-all-of-this-cost eye.
I also have some fabric that I bought when my friend Faith made her curtains (www.walkwithmebyfaith.blogspot.com) and I trimmed the selvages and stopped at that! I gotta get the courage to keep going!! I have sewn some but never something with so much fabric! Oh. My. Word.! It's a lot more than a yard 'o fabric girls. Just a little intimidating. WHAT was I thinking?
It's just I know that if I want to change somethings I can't afford to have it made so I gotta do it myself.
Unless my ship came in and then I would get me a decorator and we would go to town!
Haven't heard any whistles from a boat lately though.
I think I can, I think I can. Pray for me.
