My planned day went a little askew today
because this morning, I became the
Contractors helper at his job.
So, no painting the boys room.
I came home at lunch, took a break
then took a quick tour of the house
to see what I could muster up before the
kiddlywinks came home from school.
I mounted the rods yesterday basically
to keep them from becoming swords.
And as you read in the last post, I had
planned to use burlap.
I dug out my
dusty trusty sewing machine
and whizzed away!
I put the first two panels up on either
side of the mantle.
I left them long because I love the puddled
look and it hides the outlet down below.
I love how cozy the great room is feeling.
Taking pictures (even with the point and shoot)
is actually a good thing.
It lets you analyze the room differently.
I have lots of room for adding some art
so as I'm out and about, I'll keep
these areas in mind.
I will be looking for more small frames
as well, for family photos.
The fireplace still needs some trim down at the bottom.
We (he) ripped out the beautiful white tile stage
that sucked up so much floor space.
It's so much better now!
Doesn't Lucy just fit so well in this room?
She's definitely a French Pressed cat!
