More Living Room Decorating

Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

A couple of people have asked for more photos of the living room. I  have a few today but I’m not “done” with this room. I’m usually very slow when making over a room anyway, add to that having to unpack boxes to get to my decorating stuff….well it’s going to be an even slower process.

My Thrifted Kitchen Curtains

Black buffalo check kitchen curtains made from thrift store drapes - budget decorating idea!

NOW is the time to get yourself to the thrift store people! This and next month are probably the best months for thrifting since people are in the downsizing, decluttering, organizing set of mind with it being a New Year and all (I know I am).  I’ve been looking for curtains for my kitchen window since we moved into this house in October and just couldn’t find what I liked (and left my old curtains at the house we sold).   Happily I found some really cute curtains at Goodwill that I made-over to fit my kitchen windows and they were… [Read More]
