We've been doing a lot of work on our home and yard since returning from NJ. I don't know if its necessarily to keep our minds off of my father's passing, but it helps. Most are projects that we already had planned, but some were fairly spur of the moment.
We've done a ton of work to our backyard, which will be featured in its own post. Short story: new patio, raised garden boxes, and freshly planted beds. Long story: same as the short version, but with full details and photos. That's coming soon!
For now, to help me get back into the swing of blogging again, I figured a simple post with our bedroom updates will do. These were nothing major. I sewed our new curtains, and we hung wedding pictures. Sounds simple enough, right? The difference it made was fantastic!
The top picture is our room right after we moved in. The curtains don't match because they were left by the previous owner. As you can see, we also changed our bedding and moved furniture around. Really, the room only looked like the top photo for a little while. It had been in an in between phase for several months.
Anyway, here are the wedding photos that we hung:
And here are our curtains:
I had actually purchased curtains that were too short, but I loved the design. Solution? Buy complimentary fabric from Hobby Lobby and add to the bottom. You can better see the two designs in this photo:
And there you have it! A nice cozy bedroom. We're still on the lookout for a chair to place in front of the window, and the wall across from our bed is seriously lacking in style, but it's half-done at least. Small victories...
