After living in our home for, oh...let's see, eight years, I finally got myself together to Do Something with our family room doors. I don't like to wait around, you know. No time like the present is obviously my motto.
See, I have fallen in love with The Nester. No, not like that. I have fallen in love though with her philosophy that it does not have to be perfect to be beautiful. Let's just all breathe a collective sigh of relief! Don't we feel better now? Her posts about mistreating her windows and the benefits of fabric are changing my life. Okay, not my life, per se, but definitely our home.
Monday afternoon I was finally ready to decorate my windows. Alert the media.
I pulled up my big girl decorating panties and dashed to
mecca Hobby Lobby. Of course I hemmed and hawed over choices, still a tad nervous, finally deciding on this:
Then the REAL fun began. I plugged in my trusty glue gun, yes, you read that right, my glue gun and got busy. It's AMAZING what clever folding, clipping, gluing, puffing, a dash of poofing and in my case, over tweaking can do. Oh, and fringe. Don't forget the fringe.
Here is the finished product:
Instantly our room felt cozier, warmer and just a touch fancy-pantsed up. Seriously, what WAS I waiting for?
I certainly have other things I could do, maybe even should do today, but I'm experiencing a strong pull toward the direction of Hobby Lobby to now Do Something for our kitchen windows. I'm thinking another mistreatment, this time even cheaper because I don't plan to use a curtain rod.
There I go on that wild side again.
