We're almost ready!!!!...

Hope you're not getting absolutely sick with my master bedroom project. It will all be over soon and I'll have a final picture ready ....well hopefully soon. Jeff, the kids and I worked in there last night. Jeff put the curtain rods up, as you can see I had him put them up high (a little eye trickery to make you think the room is taller than it really is & so the window doesn't seem dwarfed once the window treatment is up). Oh, how I love trickery! I found the curtain rods on clearance at Hobby Lobby.
About the paint can arrangement. Don't you love and adore it? It is a "new" thing....you should try it, it gives your room a creative /eclectic feel. Believe me when I say that "everyone is doing it". Ha, that'd be funny.
The blue plates. My mom bought these for me, they are vintage and I think they're beautiful.....although, I'm not crazy about the arrangement. {must work on that}










Window treatment {aka:mistreatment}. The Nester inspired me to make these "no sew" mistreatments. They are silk dupioni w/ embroidered bees on them and I found the material on clearance for $2.00 a yard. I covered three windows, yea!! I must say that my kitchen feels much warmer.
Hope you are all doing wonderfully well. I wish that for you, if not. Love you all, Katy B
*Now, all I have to do is get bedding, make window treatments, and put more pictures up and I'm all done done. Well........are we ever "done" w/ decorating? NO, I think not.

Looks amazing, Katy! I know you will so happy to be DONE. Ya'll are doing great!

I am so sorry I haven't gotten back to you re: C's shower this weekend in A-Town. I won't be able to make it as we have two things we have to be at on Saturday here in town. I'm totally bummed. I can't believe I've been here for almost six months and have only seen ONE college friend. :(

If ya'll go down there, I hope you have a great time. I'm sure it'll be so much fun.

It's really coming together. I love the color of the walls. Just a hint about the plate arrangement: try laying them out on the floor until you get the look you want (maybe take a photo from above) then transfer to the wall. Also, I'd put the larger plates toward the middle to help *anchor* the design.

I can hardly wait to see the final photos!

Good thinking Deanna. I'll try that later.
