Now that the holidays are over, I’ve gives the window a bit of an update. I made these polaroid prints a couple years ago, and just keep finding adorable ways to use them! Here’s where they currently reside.
I found this fabric months ago, before we even moved into Bungalow. It was mostly my favorite because it was decorated in words that describe wine. Shiraz, Italy, Red, Smooth, Chardonnay, White, Blush, Harvest, Glass, Corkscrew, Robust, Grapes, and finally, Wine. I’m so happy with how these curtains turned out, they definitely add something to the kitchen. And sewing them with my magical machine took all of 5 minutes.
So I’ve been putting it off for a while, but I finally went and picked up my sewing machine from the storage unit. I had so many sewing projects to do at Bungalow, and nothing motivates getting your sewing machine more than sewing by hand…
Seriously, if you sew by hand, mad respect. It not only takes forever, but gives you hand cramps something fierce. So buckle your seat-belts, here come the sewing posts.
A few months ago I moved into a new apartment, which my roommate Amy and I aptly named “Bungalow”, and started the whole getting settled and making the place feel homey process. After getting our (free!) couches moved in, the white space seemed…well, very white. Don’t get me wrong, I love a clean white wall as much as the next person, but this was feeling nearly institutional.
So what did we do? Painted an accent wall of course!
Before we started, the walls felt pretty sterile. We loved our big red couch, but needed more on the wall to tie it all in. We decided on a rich coffee color, because it brought out the warmth of the couch.
Done! We also found a wall decal on Etsy with our favorite Robert Frost quote that’s on it’s way. That will finish off the wall quite nicely I think
