Lately I have been feeling like this...a bit overwhelmed and buried under tons of fabric.
I have been making the curtains for the interminable media/library redo, dangerously approaching it's one year anniversary. I guess this is to be expected when you do most of the work solo and other things in life seem to demand attention. But it is finally almost done and I want to share the alcove part of the room, which is finished with you, and primarily in this post, the curtains. This alcove area is kind of funky in that it leads straight through from the front door entry, to the alcove and then out to a deck. Actually I think it adds charm to the space and I have always used it as an ancillary sitting area. I decided this would best be shown in two parts, first the curtains and then in a later post, the entry.
You might recognize the little lamp on the table, it is the one I recently made the new shade for.
This room is west facing and in the afternoon receives a lot of sun, picking out the paint color was made much more difficult because of this, so I painted the alcove in a slightly darker tone than the main part of the room. I had the chairs, which are quite old, reupholstered in a small creme and red check. I think it compliments the drapery fabric and goes well with the floor. Hi bunny...what are you doing there?
The little table between the chairs is an antique french Art Deco piece, I love the inlay. Actually, it is a bar and has space for bottles inside on a turn-table, somewhere along the way I picked up the old chair with it's needlepoint seat and the magazine rack. I made the needlepoint cat pillow.
I fell in love with the curtain fabric when I first saw it, I thought that it's richness would be perfect for this room. Now I just have to finish the curtains for the other six foot window in the main area of the room. As they say...there is no rest for the wicked ~ Or for the decorating enthusiast!
Have a great day! And thank you for visiting.
