Putting a Room Together

Little by little...

A new (to me) chippy white telephone stand. Love the versatility of it - it could even stand in as a plant stand.

A sweet Goodwill find last week. I'm thinking of painting the frame.

A big red gingham bow to cutesy up the plain white shade.

A vintage tablecloth/runner that I'm thinking of making into a cute window curtain with some pompom trim. The only thing is that this most adorable grandma/grandpa couple look "faceless". Until you see it up close - then you can see their features. Maybe I should embroider their faces in - or do I leave it as it is? Don't want it to look garish if the embroidery stands out too much. I actually like it in the 'as is' vintage shape it's in. What do you think?


I want the curtain to be for this window - possibly on just the bottom half. Like my newly painted upper wall? It adds way more pizazz than the solid white did. I think a cute curtain will tie this little nook together so well.

And this - it's a coaster. But it has my dream sink on it. Someday....

Have a most wonderful summer!

Adorable runner! It will make a lovely curtain with perfect colors to match your wall and decor. I'd probably leave it as is.. It's sooo cute!

Red and white--I love it! Wrapping a bow around a plain lampshade is a great idea and so cute!

I love your phone table and the phone on top is great!

I think the color you painted is so bright and cheerful.

Great job.

Love what you're doing with all the green and red! I too am leaning toward the vintage table linen and ball fringe for a kitchen window treatment. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Your room is fabulous! I LOVE it! Ya know, I would keep the faces as is...it is nice to have a little "mystery" where you take a closer look. You've got talent galore!

P.S. I love how you showed the where you find inspiration (the coaster), it proves inspiration can come from anything!
