Office Redo Progress - Curtains

This fabric by Jessica Jones arrived on Wednesday. I got everything cut last night and then today I sewed. I am very happy with how these turned out. Let me tell ya, it is very hard to get tired or crabby in this room which makes it perfect for me because I spend the majority of my days in this room for work. There are still a few things I need to do to complete the room. We're looking at ideas for lighting. I am also still looking for 2 retro chairs and a throw rug and I need to purchase a lot of picture frames because I have lots of photos to put up on the striped wall. Things are moving along well.

$1 Find

What the heck? Found these in the $1 section at Target. Thought they were kinda retro which I seem to be into big time lately! Too cute. For a buck?!

Fabric Soon to Arrive!!!

The fabric I ordered for my office (picture here) is scheduled to arrive this Wednesday. I am so excited to start sewing my curtains! I LOVE this fabric and it's going to make my room really pop. I bet I will be cutting fabric on Wednesday night!

Ken painted my light fixture the same red he used on the table top. I like it.

Office Redo - The Table

Since I go back to work tomorrow after having been off for TWO WEEKS (AHHHHHH!), we are getting things cleaned up and ready to go for 8 a.m. I've been sleeping in until 9 or 10 every morning so getting up tomorrow for work is going to be a shock to my system. Ken finished painting this wooden table we got from Saint Vincent De Paul for $22.50. He painted the whole thing in satin black except the top he did in gloss cherry. The gloss finish and lighting is causing the wall striping to show up on the top in these photos. The fabric I ordered for the curtains has shipped! Yay! We are still looking for two chairs for this table.
