I have a lot of finishing touches I am trying to do at my daughter’s house, but it is going really slow. I am still waiting on fabric from Kravet for the headboard for this guest room, I have been waiting 2 months already! I wish I would of known that before I fell in love with the fabric and made the purchase. I would of looked for something else if i would of know about the looooong wait. I also needed a bed skirt for this room as well. But I was running out of options because I just couldn’t find the right color of gray and style that I was looking for. Then it dawned on me, I have been dying to do something using a drop cloth. Seeing so many creative people use them for curtains, upholstery and stuff I wanted to try it too. So I decided to use one for the bed skirt. It was the perfect gray. I have to be honest here, I didn’t sew it myself, I got lazy and paid someone else sew it for me. I just wasn’t up to the challenge.
She did an awesome job! Plus I introduced her to the ruffler attachment and she wants to ruffle everything now! I can’t wait to get this room finished and check it off the list, but it looks like it might be awhile.
One of the other finishing touches I did was in my daughter’s master bedroom. I have been browsing HomeGoods for awhile (daily) looking for a starburst mirror that was about 26″ in diameter. And the other day I scored one for $24.99. Woohoo.
I immediately took it over to my daughter’s house and hung it above their bed.
I can’t believe the price and how perfect it fits above their bed. I can now check that off my list, but now have to think of another excuse as to why I need to go to HomeGoods daily.
