Disaster! and Other Less Melodramatic Stuff

Remember my crazy plan to do leopard print curtains for the living area?  Well, I finally got enough spare change scraped together to buy 21 more yards (after already buying 3 earlier as a tester) only to discover...

(cue dramatic music)
dun dun dun!

... it sold out!  After much hair pulling and internet searching, I finally found another source, but it was almost double the price, so with that I scrapped my plans for crazy leopard curtains and decided to go with the great blog standby - painter's dropcloth curtains!  I know, they're kind of the opposite spectrum from leopard print curtains, but I've waited a year to put curtains up and it was starting to drive me insane.  I'm not completely crazy about the color in comparison to my walls (which I'm not supposed to paint since I'm a renter).  I am thinking of painting them with a stencil, but I haven't decided quite yet.  I'm definitely still going for the wide black trim inspired by Dwellers without Decorators:


In other news, we're taking a trip to the beach this weekend.  It's going to be a very quick trip, but I'm hoping to get in at least a few hours of quality lounge/tanning time (just enough to banish the pasty white off my winter legs).  I might even bring a book.

Have a good weekend!

  1. I Love painter's dropcloth curtains, especially with a bold border like the picture you referenced. Can't wait to see the end result!
