WEEKEND PROJECT

Yay for me FINALLY figuring out how to change my blog background to something cute! I don't know why it took me so long to figure it out! But I am glad to not be so PLAIN anymore! That is just not an accurate reflection of me! I got my free background courtesy of Simply Chic Blog Backgrounds! They have lots of cute ones...so don't be surprised if this one changes a few times before I find the perfect one!


Okay...I am back at work today, feeling much better, and without much to do!

As far as I know, Casey will be making a trip with his dad to the deer lease this weekend. What does this mean? Well...... it means that I will have way too much time on my hands and I will be bored out of my mind! So.... I have decided to work on a project this weekend and I am pretty excited about it!


I am taking this project from Kimba at A Soft Place To Land and making these window treatments for our three windows in our living room! I have been driving myself crazy trying to figure out what to do with our windows. I wish I had a picture with me at work, but basically we have three tall windows along the back wall of our living room. We have an L shaped couch which goes up against them. Long curtains just get so expensive and I could never figure out what color to do! So... now with these, I can pick a fun pattern since there is not much fabric. So, it shouldn't be overwhelming! These seem so easy too! No sewing at all!! Gotta love that!














Basically, all you need for these is: 2x6 wood, hot glue, L brackets, nails, nail heads, and fabric! SO EASY and SO CUTE! I cannot wait to make my own! She has a really easy tutorial for them up on her website! You should try it out too!


Now, my only problem will be which fabric to pick out... we have a red couch and a chocolate brown chair. Our coffee tables are black at the moment (we will be painting them soon) and our house is kind of a modern rustic feel. We have alot of oil rubbed bronze throughout (hardware and light fixtures)....any ideas?! I am thinking of maybe a pretty rustic looking damask?! I loooooooove damask! Let me know some great websites that you have ordered fabric from before! I feel like I am going to want a thicker fabric...like an upholstery fabric! Let me know!!! YAY!


I will for sure post pictures of everything when I get this started! Maybe I will even head to Hobby Lobby tonight and take pictures of fabrics so that you can see!


Don't forget....The Office is back on tv tonight too!! And...are any of you watching Dancing With The Stars?? I am LOVING Warren Sapp but Kim Kardashian is not impressing me like I thought she might! I am kind of sad about that! Oh! And Cody Linley! I like him too!!! :)









XOXO
