Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and weekend! I am pooped but so glad to be back! How many of you out there are like me when it comes to making a change, and once you make one it always leads to another! Well that's what happened after we finished our latest project the kitchen island. I had this valance in my kitchen that I purchased from country curtains a few years now. I still like it but wanted a change. I couldn't find anything that I really wanted for in here so I found material in Hobby Lobby that I really liked and I used my favorite natural ribbon from there too and had a valance made. Oh how I envy all you out there that know how to sew! I took it to our dry cleaners and the owner is also a seamstress, I explained the look I wanted and this is what she came up with. I love it and the best part is she only charged me $25!! I think I did good.
Here's the Before
And here's the After
Another change was my rooster rug that I had in front of my sink. I love it but being black I was vaccuming it everyday sometimes twice a day because it showed everything and that made me crazy! So I decided to go with a natural fiber rug that I ordered online from Rugs USA and I did a runner this time. Sorry for the poor before picture.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I always love your visits and sweet comments! Have a great week, Martina
