I didn't get the secretary tweaked this week, because I got side tracked...LOL what else is new?
I did move all the stuff off the chest of drawers in our bedroom, and made a little vignette, so I'll show you that.
Plus, I have a project I've been putting off, and hope you'll give me some suggestions. Please, please. :)
My attempts at drying hydrangeas, have always been iffy. But, this year I actually got them to dry, instead of flop.
The blooms aren't large, but they're dry, and considering all the rain we've had...that's a miracle.
I've had the picture above the chest for years. It's of our Georgia state bird, the Brown Thrasher, and Georgia state flower, the Cherokee rose.
The chest looks small in this pic, but it's a regular size chest of drawers, that came with the mahogany bedroom suite my parents bought when they got married.
Now, here's the project I've been putting off.
It's the window seat in the family room...we call it a window seat, even though the window is to the side.
I've been wanting to make a new cover for it for a long time, but can't decide what color/type of fabric, and pillows.
I'm ashamed to say, that the covers are just two curtain panels that I wrapped around the foam pieces, and they've been that way for several years.
I kept thinking I'd have covers made, but for one reason or another, I never did.
Now, I've decided to try to make the covers myself.
I'm really thinking maybe a solid color for the seat and back, and that way I can use a variety of pillows.
What do you think?
Should I go with a dark color, or light?
The colors in the cover now are pretty much the same colors in the rest of the room, except for the orange/rust pillow.
Thanks so much! Y'all always have the best ideas, and I'm looking forward to your suggestions.
Have a great weekend!
