This weekend we went from this:
The color is my beloved Revere Pewter & my carpel tunnel is screaming.
Pillows are currently being made to bring in more color because that’s a whole ‘lotta grey.
The drapes were my big HUZZAH! for the weekend. I fell in love with these marigold linen curtains from West Elm but couldn’t justify the price tag when there were four to buy. I even tried the painted curtains tutorial from Pinterest & it’s awful. They look like painted curtains. Buy the real thing, folks. Then I saw World Market having a similar curtains on clearance, Cornsilk Chelsea curtains, but sold out online. So I crossed my fingers & drove across town & lucky me! in stock. A pair of panels for $17, bringing my grand total to roughly $35 for 4 panels.
Enter Roger Rabbit happy dance.
They were 84″ inches, which meant they were too short. So I let out the hem (stitch ripper!) & restitched with a much smaller hem.
I didn’t take pictures of me ripping out seams & sewing straight lines all weekend. It really wasn’t that exciting & I’m sure there’s a YouTube video somewhere if you can’t figure out how to rip out a stitch.
So glad to get that green covered!
