Over a year ago, I posted about my ridiculously brown and boring living room. Complete with this gem of a photo:
I was full-on nesting and preparing for baby number four to enter our lives. Then I realized I was nine months pregnant and a mom to three other little kids and sewing curtains just didn’t sound like fun. Well, that baby is now 11months old, and….. I just now made those curtains.
Such a nice change, though, right??
Honestly, sewing curtains is still not fun to me. It’s kind of boring sewing… lots of pressing and sewing in a straight line for.e.ver. But the result is totally worth it, because my room is at least not totally brown anymore. An afternoon very well-spent!
I also bought that lampshade to try and un-brown the room. It only helped a little. I’d love to paint the walls and slipcover our couches [did you see what Jodi did to the exact.same.chair? gorgeous!], but I don’t think I have the patience to make them.
So, lesson learned: don’t wait a year to finish a project that you know is going to change how you feel about your home. Especially if it’s the place you spend 90% of your time. Okay 95%.
Oh and hey…. did you see this announcement?? Um, hold me. I’m nervously excited – and I’m up against some seriously talented ladies. I’ll be showing some sneaky peeks over on Instagram when I have them, so I’d love it if you’d follow me over there and give me some words of encouragement [or, you know, give me something to read while I’m frantically sewing late into the night….]
