Work in Progress...

I am so very, very thankful to be in our own space and to have a blank slate to work with, as far as decorating and setting up a home.  The difficult part is in the labor intensive unpacking, sorting and finding a place for everything we hauled across the country.  Storage is at a premium in our new digs, so I am still trying to find budget friendly yet lovely solutions.  And funny how curtain rods that fit previous window widths are all wrong for this place!  

Projects I am working on:

A Pink Paris Poodle room for my daughter.  I found a pair of black curtains with an attached valance at Walmart on clearance for $5.00.  Though they're not wide enough for the entire window, it works out perfectly because all black would be too much.  For contrast, I found a pair of sheer hot pink panels to go on either side at a Kmart going out of business.  Pink and zebra print ribbon trim on the curtains will finish the look.  From Craigslist, I purchased a pink sphere chair for half the price at a store, and we found a Pink Paris Poodle rug at Hobby Lobby yesterday on clearance for $5.00.  I am in the process of creating some original Paris artwork for her walls and am looking for fabric to make a duvet cover for her bed.  It's coming together!

The boys wanted a Sports Themed bedroom.  At Target's Dollar Spot, I found a football rug and soccer rug to put above each boy's bed.  Also on clearance at Walmart were some primary-colored curtains that go with all things sports.  I scored a football and soccer Easter basket on clearance at Target for small toy storage - love 75% off!  

This is just a hint of what I am working on in our new place.  The kitchen is shaping up to have a coffee related bistro soon!
