This project was somewhat all consuming for the past 2 weeks, but it is finally done and I love it. This was my family room:Can we say uninspiring, boring...ugly! I was having issues with this wall because it is so big and I didn't know how to dress it up. This obviously was not the way to go. So I emailed a picture to my big sis and mom to get a few ideas. They were able to point me in the right direction and I ran with it. Here are the results: I love the way it turned out. I even designed and built the plant stand all by self! I wanted an old crate and could not find one anywhere, so I just made one. It turned out better than I expected, so I'm tooting my own horn a little! Here's a close up of it. I cut all the boards by hand (I don't have a power saw, but now I know what to ask Santa for!) and hammered all the nails without the help of a compressor. I chose boards that were a little beat up, then I found a stain that gave it more of a weathered look. It turned out perfectly imperfect!
Now that this room is done, I hope it will help me be more motivated to keep it clean!!
And here is the perfect window treatment:Who doesn't love a monkey in a window???
