And now I offer you some BONUS pictures. This first one is the beginning of what I'm doing on a narrow wall between the living room and my sewing room. There will be several more mirrors here when I'm done.This is some of what I was talking about in my last post.
And finally, a sneak peak at the bedroom. I really want to get curtains up in here before posting, but couldn't resist a couple, not showing the boring window blinds. I'm very comfortable and happy in this room! It's JUST big enough for me.
So that's where it stands at the moment. The living room just needs different curtains and I plan to make some very soft, comfy toss pillows. I wanted this room to be soft and pastel, but not ruffly and frou-frou. There is no lace, no ruffles, not a lot of extra "stuff," nor flowers everywhere, so it doesn't really qualify as "shabby chic" but is my own version of shabby, eclectic and soft. The bedroom is done except for curtains and some more wall decor. That's the room that will get the silver trays I mentioned previously. More photos when it's done.
My sewing room still isn't totally "stocked" from the other house, but I'm in the process. My computer/art room is also a work in progress, waiting for a bookshelf for my cookbooks and a glass front cabinet that houses my CD player. I'll update with photos eventually as I complete these things. The kitchen has had nothing done and is waiting till fall for a major overhall, along with the purple utility room. The dining area has a cheap folding table being used with my nicely redone chairs. This a makeshift situationj till I get my dining table painted (when the weather is cooler.) This table can comfortably seat four, so that is my entertaining limit for meals. It will all get there eventually, but for now, I'm living quite comfortably and peacefully in my little cottage.
