More Fabric Fun!

My mind is spinning with all of the ideas I have to freshen up the windows around our home!  But windows aren't the only thing!  Yes, I did use some fabric scraps and added some striped material onto my cafe curtains in the dining room.  But I also took some more fabric leftovers and made a little table curtain to hide the crazy amount of toys we have and need hiding spots for!  With the help of some upholstery tackes and a hammer, this project was done in 10 minutes! 

I have to share with you another great blog I am using right now for more inspiration!  It is filled with clever and creative ideas and based on everything I believe in...

1.  Decorating your home should not be a budget breaker!
2.  It doesn't have to be "perfect."  I don't plan on having a designer grade me on my sewing or woodworking skills anytime soon!
3.  A glue gun and a can of spray paint can solve any decorating issue!
4.  The best way to freshen things up is to rearrange the furniture and "shop" your own home for new and creative ways to use items you already own!
5.  Don't be afraid to browse clearance aisles, thrift stores, and garage sales for cheap goodies that you can transfrom from junk into treasures!

And "The Nesting Place" follows the whole philsophy that I follow in my own home.  So, please check this blog out for more ideas and take a peek at these "no-sew" curtain ideas.  You have got to scroll down and see the variety of styles and fabrics.  Anyone can do this...and I challenge you to give it a try too!

  4. Hi Kristin :)

    Your home is gorgeous!

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog. As far as tips... my biggest one is 'be yourself' when you write your post, comment everywhere and have patience. It took over a year for people to find me. Other than that, you should buy Blogging for Bliss. I don't have anything to do with it personally, but it has the best advice for blogging that I've ever read.
