projects

So I was let in on a decorating secret by Katherine about Leisure Fabrics and was finally able to go. I got a ton of fabric and did a little makeover on our living room. Did I ever tell you we've been living here for five years with no curtains? So we took some advice from a couple of friends and their mothers and came up with this.


I love love love having a cushion along the whole hearth! We were tempted to make a cushion behind it (inside the fireplace) so the kids could use it as a reading nook, but we decided letting them play in the fireplace was a little weird. We do plan to get a screen to go in front that will mount on the brick, but haven't found anything big enough yet. It does feel a little bit more "homey". Now of course the dining room and office need more work.

LOVE it! I have fabric and pillow forms to liven up our living space too, but I have not been motivated to DO it yet...don't want to ruin the money I spent on the fabric by doing it wrong, you know? PATHETIC! I should have come over to watch so I could do it right!

I still love that color green! You made Elle's life for sending her that message. Thank you. She just spent the last hour figuring out what sounded "fancy" and typing it out. It was really funny. You totally rock (like always). And by the way I was totally bragging to my whole family about Miss H's mad sowing skills!
