This is where we left off with the new space. We moved all the furniture and opened up the whole area. Felt like a breathe of fresh air.
At Ross, I found a great curtain rod for $14.99!
The finials are what sold me. They were reminiscent of the curtain rods in a 1920′s home where my friend was recently wed at.
Then the girls and I went to my “go to” fabric store and scored a great print for the curtains. I also found another print that I might use for something…still haven’t decided yet =) Here’s the fabric close up…
Instead of just sliding the curtains onto the curtain rod, I found these drapery rings at Target for only $6 for a set of 7. I felt like adding the rings would give the window a more airy feel.
So this past weekend I whipped up the curtains, and dressed the window up…
Adds warmth and softness doesn’t it?
The girls and I also made a trip out to Homegoods, and can I just say how much I love that store! Wow!!
We found 2 things…
a wall shelf for $36
and a tufted striped parsons chair for $99
The chair is so me. I thought I wanted a chair with wheels, but this chair has just the right amount of softness, and the stripes! LOVE!
I needed a place to put the printer, and office supplies, so we brought down this silver chest of drawers we bought a while back. I was using it as my night stand, but I decided to bring it down, cuz it’s just too beautiful to keep upstairs =)
And if you’re wondering what’s inside the drawers…
paper, paper clips, usb wires, and a lighter for my candles
my notebook where all my ideas call home, annalise’s butterfly that I promised to hang up, and my secret chocolate stash hehe
And did you notice that I removed the red rug? Doesn’t it look so much better?!
