to help welcome my brother's new little family home, i thought i'd go over while they were still in the hospital and hang some curtains.
easier said than done.
if you know me at all, you know that i cannot just stop there. their walls were blank and they gave me their blessing to do as i wanted. anytime someone tells me, "go ahead, i trust you," ...it's like music to my ears.
so i hung the curtains. and then i kept going.
and in the end, they came home to:
|...a new wreath on their front door|
|...new pillows for the couches...|
|...a revamped lamp (this is the before)|
...and this is the after. i just wrapped it with some spray adhesive and sisal and voila!
|...a new side table, mirror and decorative urn that i loooove...|
|...some new handpainted artwork that is going to be hung above the desk, along with some new shelves...|
|...a new ficus tree, doormats and framed prints of them|
...and of course, new curtains!
mama and i worked hard to get it all done before they got home and luckily we got just about everything accomplished.
they already had a great house and now it's a lovely home.
