Okay.. now that I’ve caught your attention.. I just want to post a few pictures for a fellow blogger, The Nester @ The Nesting Place. Her recent Blog, Window Mistreatments:401 has me totally capitvated.. I want her style, I want her windows.. I want her bedroom!!
Anyway, I commented on her blog, and asked her to come over to check out “the Expensive Quilt” aka, My Bedroom. I just want some gooood suggestions on what kind of fabric I should look for to “Mis-treat” my windows in there. Right now I have some Sheers that I am not happy with. The main problem is, I live in the NORTH, NORTH, NORTH… and in the summer, it stays light outside till after 10:00 at night. So, I can’t just have bare windows… the room darkening blinds just don’t darken enough..
So, indulge me, look at my bedroom, and offer ANY suggestions of fabrics that would look good with the “Expensive Quilt”. Meaning.. I can’t possibly change the bedding, because I spent WAAAAAAAY to much money on this quilt.. and I have to use it for at least 10 years to feel like I got my money’s worth!! I have to tell you.. the pictures are a couple of weeks old. The shelf over the bed is outside in the garage, sanded down waiting to be painted, as are the other small shelf and the plate holders. I’m painting them black. Also.. the stuff on the chest of drawers is my husbands.. he has warned me not to remove them.. he needs 4 square feet of space in our home!! Als0 remember.. I live in Military housing.. so the room is SMALLLLLLL!!!
Don’t mind the pants hanging off of the bed.. that is a normal sight around here!!
