New Additions

Yep, that’s right…..We have some new additions to the bedroom.

I scored some killer deals yesterday for the bedroom!!  OH SO EXCITED!!

First up….these awesome bamboo blinds I found at goodwill for 5 bucks each!!  I know!!  Holy Cow!!  I can’t even begin to tell you how long I have wanted bamboo blinds in the bedroom but have never wanted to pay full price….and I finally find them for 5 bucks.

But wait there’s more!!

Now that I have new bamboo blinds it would only be appropriate to change the curtains that are currently hanging up.  So I made a quick stop at a local fabric store and found this fabric for only $4.99 a yard!!  WOO HOO!!  Of course I grabbed it and purchased 6 wonderful yards of it.


So in case you are wondering what the window treatment currently looks like in the bedroom here you go.  One of my goals for this blog is to put in a house tour page (I just haven’t gotten around to doing it yet).  I also plan to give  you a full room layout next week when I post about the completed bed frame.  But for now you will just have to settle for pictures of the window!

The small window above is a bit tricky since it’s not a full size window.

Anyone else have a mini window in their house?  What did you do to add blinds and curtains/drapes?  Did you add full length curtains as if it were a full size window or did you shorten things up a bit?  I would love to see what you did!!



Sorry about the long delay in posts. It was a long week at work wrapping up end of course assessments and getting ready for finals next week. As much as I love the end of the school year it is also the busiest time of year…

After long days at work I was feeling a little uninspired and tired to blog, but have no worries! There is light at the end of the tunnel and summer is nearly here!

I did manage to find a “new” television show to watch.  Ever hear of Shameless on Showtime? Probably not everyone’s cup of tea but I am hooked!  There is a British version to the show that you can watch instantly on Netflix.  Or season 1 of the American version is on DVD…unless you are one of the lucky ones and you have more than 5 channels!

In other news I recently purchased fabric to make a curtain in the kitchen. I plan to get to that and the closet remodel within the next 2 weeks. The greatest news is that I found fabric in my classroom closet. It must have been left by the teacher before me to decorate the bulletin boards. Cute idea but not really easy to put up alone. So I brought it home and I am thinking I might use it to practice making throw pillows for the deck!

We’ve been doing a lot of outdoor type projects lately. Hopefully I will have a post about that tomorrow!  So…lets hear it…are you a fan of Shameless??!!
