Our Montana home was on a large farm, but the house was small and having to share with two VERY different sisters meant there was not a lot of room for individual personalities to dominate the room. This move, however, has made it possible for her to design and create her own space. I am pleased with her choices and how lovely the room has turned out. We haven't found the perfect window treatments yet... so those will be added when the right material comes along.
That little banner was a cinch to make! I cut out triangles from muslin, printed off the letters, laid the muslin over the print and traced with a pencil. I then filled it in with a brown permanent marker.I then sewed the flags together and finally stitched them to the Jute twine with my machine!
The window and shelf were another project I loved doing. For safety reasons, I wanted that window secure. I could not figure out how to attach a picture hanger without breaking the glass. It was easier to secure the ribbon to the window with heavy duty staples and then attach them to an old curtain rod that was laying around!
The little peacock Pier One Chair is perhaps the most expensive item in the room, and yet I got it for $80 second hand. My home is not a designer home, yet it is cozy, lovely and welcoming. Her entire room cost under $300.. including all the bedding, chairs, rug, pictures and collections!
Use what you have in a new way... paint does wonders to old furniture! Be creative and most of all make your home a space everyone loves coming home too!
