Morning! I hope every.single.one.of you had a GREAT weekend! We did! My girls spent Friday
plotting deciding they wanted to change their rooms. The ring leader eldest is an aspiring interior decorator and has a severe case of finickyness. If that’s not a word, it should be. She changes her mind & design often. Kind of like me… ANYway, it led to some fun conversations and work for me. Yay.
Fair warning – this will be an iPhone photo intensive post. Sorry, but that’s how I roll right now. There are a few “regular” camera shots as well, but with my amazing photography skills, you won’t be able to tell the difference. 🙂
Saturday morning was spent taking down curtains, changing out the hardware, and swapping curtains around in the girls’ rooms. The kids’ have decided on a “Morroccan” theme for their den. Don’t think they (or I) know what that means, but we’ll try it. Sooo, the kid den got a set of curtains that were in our regular den several years ago.
Hard to tell, but they are burgandy with a gold design on them.
The youngest, who has the Castle Room now, wanted one set of gold curtains shortened. I did this by running a tension rod through the bottom of the curtain & hanging the bottom tension rod under the top tension rod.
She also wanted the other set of gold curtains, that had previously been in the Castle Room, rehung. So, I did. But this time I did use sturdier hardware than a tension rod. These are actually hung on a shelf rod with brackets made to go on the inside of a closet system.
My eldest thought she wanted a “Morroccan” theme as well, but has now decided on “African”. You know, cause it’s been a day since I hung the other set of den curtains in her room…. No after pic of that, but they are same as the set in Kids’ Den.
I love this birdhouse. It actually has a little glass knob that goes just below the ‘entrance’. It is made of reclaimed barn wood & I’ve had it for about 15 years. Literally.
I’ll give you the ‘after’ and a ‘redo’ (yeah, already) later this week. We also have the new light for the kids den & I’ll (hopefully) get some kitchen pics up too this week. But for now I have to drop kids at sewing lessons & head to a lunch meeting to work on some improvements to our Special Needs Ministry. Soo excited!
Here’s a pic of my cute assistant as a reward for looking at all my REALLY bad photography!
Can you stand the cuteness!?! Seriously, I have no idea how I get anything done with this much help! 😉
