So life has been much of a hodge-podge of events and experiences for me lately. I know there are quite a few things I want to share, but if they each got their own post it would take FOR-EV-AH. So. Here we go!
Here's a bad picture of the new curtains & valence I sewed for our downstairs windows (two windows = two matching sets). I'll try to get a better picture at a later time when I can show off the whole room. :) It is really coming together, and I'm happy about it! For the curtains themselves, my grandma took me out to get them and we decided to add some DIY to the mix. We purchased 1 panel for each window. I cut the panels in half length-wise. They are shorter than the width of the window, but that's okay because they are mainly decorative. We have blinds to keep the light / peeping toms out. I mostly just wanted to add a boost of color. For the valence, we got some gorgeous fabric and I just went to it without a pattern. Doing the window treatments this way saved us a lot of money and I'm happy with the results!
On a completely different note, Kimberly from Altered Whimseys has awarded the Reclaiming the Home blog with an awesome award!! :) Thank you so much Kim! :) If you all have the time, please do go check out her blog - she's so creative!
In other news, the blog was on Crunchy Mama recently for the Autism Sensory Room post! Part 2 of that post will be coming soon, but in the mean time, DO go over and check out the Crunchy Mama blog- its got a wonderful collection of ideas, projects, and blog inspiration to share!
Ok... back to the grind! More to come tomorrow! :)
