School started this week and my clock is cleaned. This first week is always hectic, but somehow every September I wake up and think, "what the heck have I been doing all summer?" I can tell you on thing, it is not cleaning! And so, the kids leave and I work to get things back to normal. Ugh!
I have also been working here and there on the girls' room. A major point on contention with both girls was the "baby curtains" they had hanging above their window seat. Apparently cute animals & gingham are not their thing anymore.
So, I hit the interwebs for some inspiration and found some great ideas...for sale. As I'm attempting to keep this mini makeover low-cost, that was no bueno. So, we hit the fabric store and bought obscene amounts of light pink, dark pink and lavender tulle. Do you know what a pain it is to cut tulle in a straight line? Luckily it is also forgiving. I cut 6x16" strips, tied them to the curtain rod itself, and voila!
You may have noticed a wall color change as well. It's a little brighter in the girls' room these days, but the green looks fabulous with all the pinks and white. The room is such a little nook that it's nice to brighten up the space. We even got their new wall items up on the wall. I still have some stitching to do for the hoops, but that will happen later!
