Roller Derby

Quick post today. I was out late last night. Dinner with friends at the beach. I know. I know. It was a school night. But the beach is just perfect this time of year. And I did want to show you the laundry room curtain. After your encouragement I decided to finish the stripes. And a special thank you to Sharon who said "why don't you use a roller?" A roller? Why didn't I think of that? I finished the stripes in less than 15 mins!! I love my blog readers!!



Here it is in all its glory. Not too bad...




Especially compared to this picture.



In other housing news I found this Suzani pillow at Home Goods. Cute, huh?
I might keep it. Right now it is just visiting to see if it fits in with my other pillows.

I need a Diet Coke.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

  12. Love how well it works with your damask ironing board cover! The new pillow is super-cute and I think it looks nice with the other pillows. Homegoods is fantastic!

  13. I started this project, too.

    But I gave up. I couldn't get the tape (tried both regular painting tape and Bullfrog tape) to stay adhered to the fabric. I feel like such a failure!

    I ordered a swatch of striped fabric and think I might have some curtains made instead. I am so not crafty.
