Organize Simplify Create Design

It is perpetual, living life and keeping it simple. Peace of mind comes from having a place for things. As I watched "Horton Hears a Who", with my grandchildren I thought about no matter how "tiny" the thing, it deserves a home. So I live by the old adage, a place for everything and everything in its respective place...

Cheap makeovers at my house

I have lived and loved these beautiful draperies for the last 11 years. I saved a ton of money by sewing them myself.

This spring I finally decided I wanted a drastic change. Leaving the warm Tuscan colors and going shabby everywhere! I was able to sell my draperies giving me play money for my new vision.

As you can see things are beginning to take shape. The detail in these readymade panels are so cute. so light and airy.
Check below for up close details.
I used burlap fringed ribbon for tie backs. The panels came from Bed Bath and Beyond, the rod from Lowes and the knobs I'm using for tie backs are from Hobby Lobbby.

The sweet little corner cabinet was my find when my hubby took me to Canton! More on that later.

I will be posting more later about the updates here. Notice the new wall color too!
