Mini Makeover

I've been in desperate need
of some new pillow covers for my
living room, it's amazing what a two
year old can do to your furnishings.
I went with something green
and summery that goes well with the fern
prints I have hanging above my sofa.
I also made a matching valance for the kitchen.
Our kitchen and living area are one TINY
open space so I wanted to keep it cohesive.
This window has been
naked for the past year, and I finally
whipped up this valance. 1 hour and $6
dollars later, I can't believe it took me
so long to get around to!

I also made this "EAT" sign, I've seen
so many of them and decided that this
little wall was the perfect spot for it!
All in all I spent only $30 for four pillows,
the valance, and EAT sign, and it made this rental
finally feel so much more like a home!

as stunning!

Wouldn't it be nice...

to do laundry in a room that was as
pretty as this:
It's not too over-the-top for a laundry room
but it's SOOO much prettier than mine.
And that mirror is an old door, genius!
...One day I guess...
