To help solve that problem last weekend I spent a lot of time at my sewing machine working on some updates to make it feel happier up in here. I made Dutch's crib skirt, got most of his quilt pieced, made a new pillow for our bed, turned king pillow shams into queens, and made some new living room pillows. I'm ready to knock down some walls but that isn't happening anytime soon. Fabric is cheaper and me chained to a sewing machine ='s free labor.
Starting in the living room - I really want new curtains, I've had these for over 3 years which is a really long time at my house. whine. I just don't want to make them or pay to have them made so I've made my peace and they are staying around. One thing that is getting the ax is this little typewriter table.
I bought it when we moved in 2009 and have enjoyed it. I'm just looking for ways to have more hidden storage in the house and was wanting somewhere to stash kid books, toys, diapers etc. I am sure they will start to take over my house soon. I was going to have a piece of wood attached to the top of the typewriter table to make a little more surface space and then a slipcover made to cover the wood top and mess under the table. Then I got to thinking and didn't want to spend the $135 on the slipcover when I've got other things to be buying right now. While making my rounds at the thrift store last week I came upon this little jewel.
Yeah that cabinet has about 2x as many shiny glass things in it now!
