So over the past month, along with Nester's other faithful followers, I've remade my bed, brought in a thing-a-ma-bobby from the kitchen to my bathroom, and incorporated more fabric into each room. And today, the Nester is having a linky show-and-tell about the little changes we 've made.
I'm cheating a little, because I'm posting about a change I made, oh, maybe 5 years ago. But it really was simple and inexpensive and follows the Nester rule for softening the kitchen by incorporating more fabric into the room.
Our kitchen came with a little built in window seating area. I loved the space but left as is, it was cold and hard. It screamed for softening, warming and inviting! fabric. To start, my mom and I made cushions that took waaaaay longer than 10 minutes, (thank you, Mom) but when I found fabric I liked for that project, I ordered a few yards (maybe 2.5?) of a coordinating striped fabric for a window treatment for my extra long window.
Okay, I started typing a tutorial on how I made this awning, but it started taking longer than it actually took to make the awning, sooo, I'll just post a few pictures to give you the idea.
(plumbing pipes and hardware from Home Depot spray painted to match the light fixtures)
So that's my kitchen, and I love it. And if you're ever visiting, I pray you find it as inviting as I do.
