For some time now, I have asked my patient husband the same question.
“Don’t you think our curtains need a little something extra?”
To which he replies,
“I think they are great but I know you are going to change them so
does it really matter what I say?”
To which I reply,
“Of course it matters!”
To which he replies with that knowing look.
The one that says, “yeah right!”
He is right. I’m going to change them either way, but I just like to live under the illusion (or maybe delusion?) that he finds all of my decorating questions endlessly delightful and only one of my many charming qualities.
It was love at first sight with this fabric. I was even more certain it was “the one” when I realized it was in the Clearance Section of Hancock Fabrics.
Apparently someone had custom ordered it and then changed their mind.
Their loss was my gain for sure!
There wasn’t much of it though…just enough for 2 pillows and 2 panels.
Or so I thought…
When I had finally had enough of the “panel plainness” I went digging through my fabric remnant bin…hoping…wishing that there might be just a little bit of this left.
And then….there it was!
Just enough to add a “valance” to each panel.
With some trim (at 40% off, of course), I knew it could be given that extra “umph” I was hoping for.
Ahh…so much better!
And did my darling hubby even notice?
Of course not!
That is until he went to pull the panels across the window to block out the morning sunlight and realized that my extra little touch was just not quite as long as the panels so they didn’t close all the way.
Thank goodness he loves me!
Now, some of you have seen our Master Bedroom before.
But, we have made so many new friends too here at the Fence that I thought it would be fun to not only show my curtain update, but the rest of this space as well.
This is the view that greets you as you come up the stairs and look to the left.
Coming in a little bit further, our master bathroom is just around that armoire.
This armoire was our first major furniture purchase as a married couple (almost 13 years ago!).
Looking into the Master Bathroom from the bedroom.
This little settee at the foot of the bed was a Craigslist find!
I was a bit nervous about the stripe but once we got it in here I knew it was meant to be.
Hubby’s nightsand was a Tuesday Morning piece that I stalked for awhile until the price came down.
It was worth the wait!
This desk was given to us by our realtor when we moved in.
They were relocating her mother to an assisted living home and asked if we would want it.
Are you kidding?
Pretty free desk? You betcha!
This collage illustrates how so many different patterns and colors can blend together seamlessly.
At least, I think they do!
Looking back into the room from the master bathroom.
Now, would you like to know what my favorite thing is in this room?
It’s our bed.
Ok…get your minds out of the gutter because THAT is not why!
It is because it was handmade by my Father-in-law as our wedding gift.
And because it has details like this….
And one other little one that he added as a surprise.
And yes…we are just weird enough to actually sleep on the side of the bed corresponding with our initial.
And yes…I realize the monogram is dusty.
It sits hidden behind that settee and only comes out on display for Blog Photos!
So, what would be the point of dusting it if it was just going to be covered up again?
I have my limits you know!
Thanks for joining me at the Fence today,
