I’m back as promised to show you what color slipcovers I chose for the chairs, henna was the winner, the perfect color to warm up a space. I also decided to do no staging for my photos, what you see is what you get when you enter our home. I never have a messy house and with the floor plan being wide open it’s a must to keep the place as organized and tidy as possible.
The cow print is a favorite and I never get tired of it, which is strange for me I normally tire of artwork easily and buffalo check curtains are always a staple in my home. I do change the color of the curtains with the season but they always remain a check. Here’s a little secret, I buy designer fabric by the roll with the frayed edges and all I do is cut it to size, hem the top and bottom and leave the raw frayed edges at the side for a more rustic look. It is so fast and easy and I love the look.
The dead head on the wall was my hubby’s kill, I believe it is an 8 point. I was against it hanging in the living room but I had to let him have something of his in the space. I just pray the herd doesn’t grow, I don’t mind them in the freezer but one is enough on the wall for me, after all I don’t think of our home as a hunting lodge.
I actually changed all the slips over a 3 day period and that worked out much better. My hands didn’t seem to be in constant pain, so I think this will be my new method. I will have to remind myself to not get antsy and want the task completed all in one day. Apparently pacing myself is the key.
I guess taking my time is better anyway it gives each piece time to dry before we need to sit on it and it gives us a place to sit one piece at a time.
Now my next challenge is to gut the walk-in master bedroom closet and purge it from clothing that’s not being worn. Last time I did it I found 3 $100 dollar bills in one of hubby’s shirt pockets. I hope I am that lucky this time, finding unexpected money was a great reward for all my hard work.
