Fabric Wall Treatment



Today was a jam-packed DIY filled day and I have pretty pictures to show for it…


I got my fabric yesterday and I couldn’t wait to play with it…well, work with it.  It is my job after all.  This project was something I wanted to do anyway, but it was for an tutorial, so it got bumped up the list.  Don’t ask me how I did this project, yet.  I wrote a full tutorial and it will be available soon (a few weeks probably) and I’ll link to it when it’s live.

So, can you start to see my vision come to life from the bones of the room I showed a few weeks ago?   






I love how the wall treatment works with the bed.



…and the chandelier is just waiting patiently on the chair that’s waiting patiently as well.   One thing at a time.


I’ve had company lately as I’ve been working on my projects.  She’s my neighbor’s cat, but we used to play with her and her kittens when they were strays.  She comes around now and then to visit.



Yes, my Christmas tree is still out on my deck.  I just dragged it out and left it there and there it still sits.  It might be a fortunate thing since I’m working on Christmas projects and it might be a good thing to have a tree in the background for some of the photo shoots.  Of course, that means I have to haul it off the deck and put lights on it again…

Anyway, I also did some research to figure out what kind of curtains I want to make for the bedroom.  This is for a tutorial as well and, since I’ve written several curtain tutorials, I want to bring something new to this one.



I think I’ve settled on what I want to do.

I did take a few minutes in the day to throw some leftover veggies into tortillas for a quick lunch…


 …and I even took time to take a picture of it.

The afternoon was spent writing articles and editing photos.  My mom then came over when she was done with work and helped me paint the wood planks for the bedroom ceiling (also for a tutorial.)

I’ve been ultra productive the past few days, even for me, but I get to slow down a little tomorrow for a haircut.  Am I the only one who thinks that’s a big treat?  I just get to sit there and I don’t feel like I have to plow through my to-do list or get up to get anyone a snack.

will do some more work on tutorials and the ceiling fan is coming down, hallelujah, so there will still be plenty going on.  

Before I sign off, I’ll leave you with this…


   Just because I love it so much.

    Great idea, been looking for a tutorial for a while! Can you please link us to your tutorial?

  9. I have the same fabric on some chairs in my formal dining that you have on your bedroom wall. I have a small scrap left and would like to make some pillows but I can’t find the fabric in stores or online.Do you remember the name and manufacturer. I thought it was Waverly, but I can’t find it on their website. I reupholstered the chairs a few years ago, so it maybe be discontinued.
