My cute sister Sharon reminded me that I had yet to post a few projects that I completed this fall, mainly to do with restoring our basement after the big flood of 2010 (I can totally see us referring to it as that in years to come so I'm just going to start calling it that now.) I'm realizing now that I don't have any real pics of the full rooms completed but you can see it piece by piece. So here's a post for her, and you too.
so organized it is sickening. I love it.
I have a large storage shelf and I have also hated that I can't ever make it look neat and tidy so I made a little curtain to cover it. At first I wasn't happy with it because the bins I had inside were too big and it made the curtain bulge. I bought some new baskets that fit better so now it lays flat. I was also not sold on the color I chose - it felt a little like a hospital gown to me. My friend Laura suggested I add a ruffle or some detailing. That was a simple but huge improvement I think. I also recovered my ironing board - again a suggestion from my genius friend Laura. It was ridiculously easy and took no time at all. I love that the whole room matches now.
Now let me invite you upstairs to my bedroom. (Git your mind outta the gutter!) People always ask how on earth my husband lets me have a coral/pink wall in my room and I remind them that when it comes to colors and decorating I have free rein as he is colorblind and actually thinks this wall is grey. Like really, am I going to ask for that kind of input? I am allowed to do whatever I want when it comes to colors because he doesn't see them properly anyway. So here are some pillows I made to help accentuate that coral/pink wall. I picked up 2 of these fabrics down at Joann and my sister had the third and missing piece which she selflessly gave me! I think they turned out cute.
And there you have it, I think that's all! Did I get everything Sharon?! :)
