Curtains Hung

This evening I managed to remove the final bits of masking tape, vacuum the carpet and hang the curtains. My camera does not have a very wide angle lens but I think you can get the idea of the colour scheme of the room.

I had early been to Ikea for the shelving for the cupboard and a little drawer unit for wall mounting near the sewing machines. DH is master of the flatpack and has promised to help with those though he's under the weather today so I didn't push it.

We also didn't seem to have any food in the house so I did a supermarket run. That plus an episode of Dr Who off DVD used the evening up completely. (P.S. I love Dr Who) so I am happy I managed to vacuum and hang the curtains even if not much more than that.

DMIL's floral curtains work well in this otherwise plain scheme. They did have these in their master bedroom with matching bedding and a pink carpet and even DMIL who loved the print agreed it was too much. She has plain pink curtains now so was happy for these to find a new home with me.

Love it Ruthie. It seems as if the curtains add the punch that was needed in this room. Have fun putting it back together. Will think of you as I dismantle my little sewing area as we are going to be moving in 3 weeks. In the new to us house, I will have a large sewing space which I will be glad to decorate as it will be mine, all mine.

The curtains are soft & pretty. Look very nice with your fresh walls, too, eh ;)

How pretty and dainty it is becoming! So different from your "before" decor. And how good of your mother-in-law to give you those sweet curtains. If you have said, I don't remember: is there a nice view behind them?

Carla sadly no the view behind the curtains is of the house across the street.

Ooh! Your sewing room is to die for! Can't wait to see it when you are finished
