Curtain Reveal

In one of my posts last week, I asked for your votes on which material I should use for the curtains in my living room.  I so appreciate everyone who weighed in!  I did take each vote to heart, which made it difficult to decide because so many people liked them both :D  So, I went with my gut & finally made a decision!!

Here is the before picture:

And here is the winner!!


I know they're not perfect, but they're good enough for this amatuer seamstress!

And some pictures of the living room:


There's the green chair I found last year around this time, which I mentioned in an earlier post!
I love how the living room is slowly coming together!  Some day I want to get another lamp that matches the one you can see & replace the one you can see in the mirror :)



A banner I made for Easter - "He Is Risen"

I'm not done with this yet, but thought it'd be fun to use one of the napkins on this table :)

I've done more updating to the living room!  Check it out here:

Your living room looks great! I love the curtains! May just have to use this idea in the big boy room I'm working on for my son.

Love the pop of color! Great job :) Your living room is coming along very nicely. Wouldn't it be nice if we could just snap a finger and have it all done!

Hugs & Blessings ...
