I have posted pictures of my room before but never any wide shots or pictures of the center of my counter because up until Friday I had a Princess flat sheet push pinned over the window! Well here it is and I am so in love with it!...
I kept going back and forth on what I wanted for the window. At first it was a roman shade, and then something else, and I finally decided on these honeycomb type cordless blinds and a pretty valance over the top. I went and bought this fabric for $5.99 a yard and bought two yards and my grandmother (the sewing magician) made two valances out of it. The matching one is in my kitchen and I'm loving it there too. She used some unbleached muslin to make the pocket for the curtain rod so that the patterned fabric could all be used for the curtain itself. It looks so good against the blue wall and with the green lamp that almost matches it.
On the right here is all of my papers from this post here and above it are the three clipboards for favorite new pages, I like to see them for a while before I put them away!
The post about my island is here although I just recently moved a few things around and have now put my cricut and silhouette stuff in there along with the Xyron and label maker.
I had my wonderful husband put up my inspiration board to the left of where I usually sit. It is just a white 12x12 frame that I took the glass out of and replaced with a corkboard sheet. On it are just little things that are memorable to me and make me happy. And my Slice storage post is here
This is where I usually sit because I love this tractor chair. I want to get another one for the second work station, maybe in Pink! This tool caddy was an outdoor silverware piece that I got on clearance at Target. I love it!
The mirror was given to me by my friend Kristina, she painted it this pretty color and then didn't have room for it so she gave it to me! I love it here in my room. The shelf has my Cloud 9 mini album and a Partylite tealight holder on it.
The post about my Expedit shelves is here I love this unit so much and highly recommend it to everyone! And back there on the wall is the square clock that I made from a picture I took at Disney World. It says "Remember the Magic in Every Moment" it's a great reminder of why I do what I do.
My wonderful husband also installed these adjustable shelves for me this weekend and it feels great to have more things up on the wall instead of cluttering up my counter. On the bottom are stamps, wooden ones on this tiered shelf unit and my favorite acrylic stamps are in this little crate that I painted purple, plus my ihome which I have to have nearby. On the middle shelf are these jars that my grandmother just gave me and were perfect for all of my ribbon. I love to make organization pretty, it adds more color to the room. The top is just some stuff that makes me happy!
The post about this area is here plus a few extra things around my room. I definitely have more plans for prettying up my room and will share as I create them. I want to continue to make it a statement of who I am.
