I know I'm getting ahead of myself posting my room before it is totally done. But . . . so many people said to just keep posting as I go, so here goes!
Remember this cute little box from the Goodwill for $4?
Here it is now! the front -
and the back!
And the mug holder for $2. It's now holding mugs! But I think it needs some ribbon on it . . .
My work in progress shelves. I hope to get the molding installed on them this weekend.
I got the frame painted white around my "dreaming" girl . . . my Mom gave me that picture so it is pretty special to me.
Here is the table skirt - DONE!!!!! And I didn't have to make the buttons! But! There is one missing! I have no clue what happened to it - so it'll just have to wait until it reappears (yeah right!) Yesterday my friend Joy took me to the garment district in LA and we shopped! Man was it fun. I had never been there. We bought buttons and trims, fabric and more fabric, charms and rhinestones and crystals and all kinds of good stuff!!! And it looks like we'll be going back to buy at least one more button! (Gosh I wonder what else we'll find next time we go ?) he he he
Here is the fabric and trims I bought for the pillows I'm going to make for the loveseat.
And here are some of the charms and things I bought for scrapbooking and blinging out my pillows and window cornice box. Very fun!!! The charms were about $1.00 for 3. The honey bee and the large cross were 70 cents each. I think all the rhinestones together cost me about $4. There is one dozen of 5 different colors in the round container. Pretty colors! And very inexpensive! Once I get all these craft projects done, and the sewing done, then I can get back to entire reason why I designed this room - scrapbooking!!!!
Well . . . but then there is a quilt I want to make, and my friend Joy and I are going to take knitting lessons, and did I mention I have about 20 years worth of pictures to catch up on?
THERE AREN'T ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY!!!!!!!
