The Effects of An HGTV Obsession

It's true I am slightly addicted to HGTV! If I am watching the tv then most likely that is the channel I am tuned in to!! The problem when I watch it so much is that I get ideas for all the things I want to do/change/fix/create in my own house. I wanted a little change in the master bedroom, but I didn't have a big budget so I created new throw pillows from a shower curtain and a little bit of scrap fabric. I painted a white dresser, moved a few things around, took some stuff down and added a few small inexpensive details (as in 75 % of clearance at places like Michael's, Ross and Target) So here are pictures of some of the changes.


AFTER (not quite done)




The Next photos are of pillows/curtains/pictures that have been added to these rooms
I made the above pillow and added some new pictures on the wall

I painted the little table and made the pillow

This pillow and two others were added to the couch

The curtains were some pre-made ones that I had and I just added fabric along the bottom in order to unify them and make them long enough for the window!!

These are picture walls that I put up (the above wall are pictures of all the military family members I have and old maps from WWII)

So impressed! Especially at your creativity with using a shower curtain for material for pillows. Great work. It all looks great!

Jessi McCall said...

I love the yellow accent in your bedroom! I also love the curtains you spruce up! Seriously, I wish I had one creative bone in my body. You should hold a seminar next time you come to Vegas!

(kasey's comment) Super cute! I wish I was creative in decorating. Dave is, but not me. Not at all. I love the changes you made to your bedroom - does Jimmy appreciate no longer sleeing in a princess bed?

Marylin said...

Kasey- Jimmy was very happy when I took the "Mosquito Net" down (that is what I tried to tell him it was )! I must admit that it makes the room feel more open and larger!!

The rest of you are the best friends a girl could ask for, thanks for the thumbs up cause I am always nervous to show my house because my stuff is usually hand made or from thrift stores!! :) Love you all

Jen Anderson said...

Love it all! It looks beautiful and I am so jealous. Everyone of my house projects are undone! Wanna come over?!!
Homemade & thrift store stuff is the very best kind of stuff!!
again-Love it all!!

You really have an amazing AMAZING talent!! I can never see these things. I love the way you have simply pulled everything together. You should start doing your own step by step training blogs on things you are doing. My friend, a woman, is very handy person. She is flipping houses. She writes a blog to teach other woman how to "fix it" themselves.

As always, you have great style. Can you share some of that with me, I am slightly style deficient.
