We've been here 26 months now.
Once I read that someone was going to live as if she lived in her dream house. I've been trying to do that ever since. (I did work on the house in Richmond, but we moved shortly after I made that decision.) One of the ways I'm trying to do this is to make curtains, hang art, frame posters, and so on. I might even paint. Usually I only really do those things if we are getting ready to sell the house. This time, I want to do those things for us--so we get to enjoy our hard work. (Or my hard work--a lot of it falls to me to do.)
Of course, since I'm trying to pay off debt, I'm not spending much money on that. However, since I have been given lots of fabric as the BBFs find it at their house, I can do some of it on the cheap.
Exhibit 1. Curtains for the singleton windows in the living room. Fabric is obviously Indian, and it matches the drapes on the picture window(s). It also goes very well with the other decor in that room. (We could still use furniture in there, but at least it looks pretty.)
