A New Adventure

I always have a project. I'm a project kind of girl. And I live in a project kind of house (it's not really a fixer-upper, but it's a needs-to-be-updated-er).

My daughter's room has been that room in this house. The one that is really fine the way it is, but I just don't love it. So of course, my project-needing self had to change it. I am far from finished, and let me tell you, I have GRAND plans for this room... but my next step was this bed.

It is an antique headboard and footboard that belonged to my husband's grandmother.

I have always loved it, but have not had a place for it in years. It was being stored in our attic. No more! I LOVE the way it turned out.

Perfect for my little girl, don't you think?

She loves it.

Here are a few of the in-progress photos:

Before and After Curtains

This post could also be titled "Why you need window treatments" or even "How curtains make a room" :-)

This a little bit of "why hasn't she updated her blog in forever?" I've been busy busy busy working on projects!

This is a finished nursery that I made the crib bedding and curtains for. I also made the diaper stacker and the changing pad covers. Jessica at Sparkles Boutique did the wall letters (ah-mazing!!) and the lamp shade. She is an amazingly talented lady. Camille (baby's mom) is a wonderful decorator and has done an outstanding job on this room. It's absolutely gorgeous!

And now I think I can say, officially, that I "do" curtains. I've been in denial for quite some time. :-)
