Happy Friday! I hope you've had a good week. My husband was out of town for four days so, as usual, I got about halfway on a bunch of projects but then...real life intervened. :) C'est la vie, I guess!
Here's a fun idea that can be adapted lots of ways. Years ago, my husband (then fiance) and I bought these salvaged windows. At the time, I simply sanded off some of the flaking paint and gave the wood the once-over with some polyurethane to keep it from peeling further. They looked adorable above my husband's bachelor bed (although he would object to the term "adorable" and might prefer "manly and strong in an artsy-kind-of-way").
I dug them out of a box after forgetting about them for years. I tried hanging them on the wall but felt like they needed a little something instead of that vast expanse of glass. Enter: burlap. Seems like burlap is everywhere these days!
I think the windows look perfect sitting above my work table. I love how the burlap gives them more interest and texture.
And I even had a little extra to wrap a smells-good-but-is-way-too-orange candle. Now it looks cute but doesn't scream "Sesame Street!"
And you may have noticed in the photo above that my sewing machine is back! That's because I've been making more curtains in anticipation of the big shiny furniture delivery truck that's coming to my house over the weekend.
Family room makeover coming next week, stay tuned!
