Bits of our Weekend

Mom and I have been busy putting some finishing touches on my home lately. Nothing like a good ol' photo shoot to get your rear in gear and put the finishing touches on your home that you've been dilly dallying on. We spent the day last Sunday making a slipcover for this guy:



More soon on the process, but in the meantime, here's a peek.  We love drop cloths around here!


Last weekend, we also put the finishing touches on my bathroom makeover.  Whew, thank GOD that's done.  It's been a long time coming and amazing fixtures make all the difference!





Speaking of fixtures, we added a bit of equestrian flare to my old Bombe chest.  Boy I'd love all of my lower cabinets in the kitchen to don these puppies - I just adore them!!



We did a fun little treatment to my guest room with a tablecloth:


We also reupholstered my guest headboard AGAIN.  Remember this?



Well I couldn't get past the 'little boys room' look, so in the end, I couldn't live with it.  So I needed something else, cheap and fast.  Another tablecloth trick.  I picked this John Robshaw table cloth up for my dining room table but it was too long - I never seem to get it right with the actual application but I have no problem turning the tablecloth into something totally different!  I should own stock in tablecloths, jeez. 


Lastly, I'm loving my new throw from Novica.  I gotta tell you about those guys - they are just the nicest! More on that later too.


We gotta keep this little guy off of it though.  I think because it's alpaca, it must smell really good to the dogs.  Wilma is crazy about some horn knobs I have on my filing cabinet - it's like they can sense that these used to be part of an animal.  Smart little things!
