WARNING, PICTURE OVERLOAD!!
I think this makeover probably has the most impact of any I have ever done. Y'all know I'm
One of my favorite consignment shops has moved to a new location, so I went to see the new store yesterday, and of course I had my mind on finding something to get my junkin' fix. And find it I did!! I was looking through their vintage linens, debating on some of them, when I looked on top of the display and saw this fabric, tied up with twine, price, $5.99. So I grabbed it. I could tell there was quite a bit, and once I got it home, I opened it up, and estimated it to have about 5 yards.
I knew immediately what I would do with the fabric. I would use it to give my sun room a little makeover!
I have had two twin sheets draped at the top of the windows in there for several years, probably 10! I've often thought of doing something else in there, but just hadn't done it. Now is the time!!
This is what the windows looked like with the ugly sheets at the top.
I have long been tired of the hunter green cushions on the wicker lounge, and the mismatched cushions in the rocker.
Knowing I wouldn't have enough fabric to make everything I wanted to I decided to use one of the twin sheets I had used above the windows for the back of the cushions.
Last night, I measured and cut the fabric to make the valances, and got them sewn and put up. Aah, better already. I made them narrow, because I didn't want to hide the view, or the wonderful sunshine that streams into the room in the mornings.
Here is the lounge with the new cushion covers.
The rocking chair looks so much better!!
You can see part of the green sheet used for the bottom of the cushion, but that's fine with me. I like the contrast.
I made an envelope cover for the small cushion.
I had a little of the floral fabric left, so I made some accessories to go in the room, including a runner for the oval turquoise table.........
The door I recently painted got a new location behind the lounge chair.
This coming week will be a busy one. Several appointments, with the week culminating with my Grandson's wedding on Saturday, March 14th. I'll see you after that!
