A Sneak Peek At Guest Room Changes

I've been busy in the yard this week - raking oak leaves and bringing plants out of the greenhouse. It's been so warm and perfect these last few days. These are in full bloom too:


They are just beautiful and the smell! Just heavenly! Nothing like a huge field of bluebonnets. I have to admit they are my very favorite of wildflowers.

I'm also working on some small projects for the guest room. You see, I found the perfect chair to go in there which sparked a mini makeover. This chair really spoke to me and gave me a direction to go in this room. The fabric on it is adorable! I love the birds in the bright colors!



Because of the chair, the tablecloth turned curtains no longer go, so I also bought new curtains.

Then two of the decorative pillows no longer matched (they were covered with leftover tablecloth fabric):
Old pillow covers - Pretty but they don't go with the new chair
I have this blue and pink that go with the birds:



I drew some bird designs on Heat-n-Bond using my fabrics:



Cut them out and ironed them onto the pillow fronts. Next up, I sewed my new pillow covers. Pretty pillows to go with my pretty new chair.

Can't wait to show you the room with all the new things in place so stay tuned! I'll share that next week.

  6. Omg! I have that same 'old' fabric! I used it to make curtains in our rental, but I also have it here at the cabin as a tablecloth on the porch.

    I too like birds (and leaves). Not sure if you remember the lampshades I made with paper last year? They have birds and leaves, and I love the look!

    1. That's funny, Doreen. You have great taste obviously. Lol. My old fabric was actually tablecloths I bought and used for curtains. They were a great find at TJMaxx.
      I remember your lampshade having leaves but not birds. I'm going to have to go back and look at it.
