Funny thing is, I have MANY confessions that I want to share with you. Secrets that I don’t even share with Mr. B or some of my best friends. I truly feel connected to you because I feel that you of all will understand. So…my 1st revealing secret:
Ok..so why am I confessing that I am a decorating chipmunk? Well I am playing with the idea of refreshing my living room. This rejuvenation would possibly lead to jumping on the drop cloth bandwagon and introducing them in my family room.
What about my velvet drapes? Oh I still adore them and might move them into Mr. B’s “play room” --- I mean MAN room, but I am just yearning for Spring. Trust me, I will not get rid of them. I just thought using drop cloth would be a smashing way of incorporating the cream that I already have on my cabinets. Aside from extra drop cloth for drapery panels..I have enough “stashed” from the remnants that I used for the toile pillows to make numbered pillows for my sofa. Like this:
My sofa is that same wheat color as in the picture above so I thought using the drop cloth pillows with a dashing number would be fresh and new for the room. Plus!! There is no competition with my lovely Colette. And lastly, we have a set of French Doors off our dining room that has no window treatment. I could, perhaps, hang another set of drop cloth there too (I would have to make a dash to Home Depot. I don’t have THAT much drop cloth).
What do you think? I plan to stay away from the roads today. I was just not meant to be out today. Which gives me plenty of time to experiment at home.
Ok...I am needy today...so what do you think? Really.
So here is my little experiment:
I "nestered" up some window treatments with my drop cloth (I would make the drapes more tighter with more clips but I just wanted to "see" the effect) and made a PB numbered pillow. I actually used a Walmart premade pillow in "fresh ivory" that was clearanced to $2. The price inspired the number. So what do you think? Would these pillows work rather than making drop cloth pillows and how about the drapes? Mr. B still likes the velvet better, but I am calling for opinions. :)
