I decided the shelf area needed a curtain, so in keeping with my color scheme, I bought a grey full-sized sheet, cut it in half, hemmed the raw edges, and then stenciled words in yellow:
Sorry about the wrinkles - I still don't have an iron at the farm; after all, who wants to do "real" work?
The broom "closet" also got a curtain. I found the fabric at Wal-Mart - it's really more yellow than it shows in the picture...
I found these great red fabric bins at Garden Ridge; some were even on sale. I added my chalkboard tags, tying them on with twine. I am currently looking for a chalk marker so I can write neater than the chalk stick lets me write. Hobby Lobby carries what I want but they've been out.
I can clip the curtains open with my cute decoupaged clothes pins:
And this finally came in the mail:
I'll be adding it the next time I go. It's going on my "new" door. Here's a sneak peak of it:
I'm getting down to the fun part of the room makeover. All I can say is I am gathering quite a bit to take up with me the next visit and working like crazy to finish what I can here.
Still more to come!
