so a few days ago I gave you all a mystery clue for one of my upcoming projects.....unfortunately I'm disappointed that it won't work out after all :-( Initially I got that fabric swatch thinking I would use the fabric to reapholster my grandmothers old wingback chair that I plan on putting in our bedroom some day, but the colors didn't quite work the way I wanted. They did, however, work awesome in our morning room and I thought they would make excellent valances to replace the existing ones I have now (which I really don't like), and recover the toss pillows in the living room (which I also don't like anymore). However, now I can't find the fabric online and in store it would cost me a giant fortune to buy the amount of fabric I really needed so I guess I am out of luck with that project. Probably a good thing as I've been checking out some different possibilities.
Here is my dilemma with the morning room....I love having valances on the windows but I have drapes on the sliding glass door for privacy and I think it looks out of proportion. Should I forgo having privacy and just continue the valance over the sliding glass as well or should I get rid of the valances and just do drapes on each side of the door and sections of windows? What have you all been doing with your morning room windows and sliding doors? Its just one of those projects I can see all sorts of ways and haven't found the exact one that I LOVE!!
SO while I'm asking questions.......I've been seeing blogs about the tile that looks like hardwood floors. Have you seen this stuff? I saw it a few months ago in one of the big box stores and didn't care much for it, but that was just looking at a pile of tile....I've been seeing pictures of rooms done with this tile and it looks amazing when its done. People have been putting it everywhere in their homes; bedrooms, laundry rooms, living rooms,dining rooms, kitchens, entrys and honestly from their pictures it looks like hardwood floors. So I looked into the reviews of this tile and its been getting excellent reviews as well. So now I'm considering putting it in our master bathroom so it would look like hardwoods but have the durability of tile. Have any of you seen this or have any thoughts about it??
Well hopefully I'll have more to blog about soon. I've got a paint swatch next to me that is strongly suggesting I run to the paint store now to get it and start painting!!!
I'll be eagerly waiting to see/read your morning room curtain tips and hardwood tile thoughts!!
