Inspired Project

I've been Inspired! Yes...it's happened. I've done it again...I've sat at my computer clicking through blogville, letting myself wonder...thinking, pondering, praying, commenting, visiting, sharing, asking, inviting, and yes I happened upon some wonderful items! Of course I visited my usual Tres Birds, Tinker Verve, La Te Da, Conversation Queen, Random Thoughts, and Water Girl...these gals are the real deal. They are the physical face to face women in my life that keep me real. As I continued on my stroll I visited another blog that's a fav of mine and she had one of the most beautiful quilts, instantly- I was in Love! The colors were gorgeous...I was smitten, that was all there was to it. I knew I had to make something with those colors. I knew I couldn't buy the quilt...ummm,( thank-you Dave) soooo...I did the next best thing...I did some digging in my fabric stash and found what I could. I was going to make something like it, even if it took me forever! Next I went to work on an old shelf-thingy I had in my office/craft/sewing room. What to do with it...where to put it? For some reason I decided it would go up in my laundry space. It's not a laundry room, it's a sort-of closet. I had to take the doors off because the kids kept jerking them off the tracks causing them to fall forward and knock big gashes into the walls. Nice...I know :) So now I have a nice washer and dryer nook :) I'd like to have something else going up there, but have no idea what to do. Different Post I guess...any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Now I'm rambling...onward...with the rest of my project, back to the Love Story. I forgot to take before pictures of the icky-ugly shelf, but I did take pictures of the doors, so you can get my drift when I say "it wasn't pretty to look at". I gave "J" 15 the job of painting it white...which he takes very seriously. He's my project "go to" guy. He's going to make some woman a very happy husband someday :) (He likes to bake, also) Anyhoo...I proceeded to whip up this very pretty, quilt-like, and dare I say "eye candyish" curtain...

So tell me what'cha all think?... Before:

I don't think I really like the new shelf in the laundry area...it's too cute to be stuck upstairs where no one can see or appreciate it's cuteness. I think I may move it down stairs into my sewing/craft/office room. Don't you think? I LOVED the way it turned out...in fact I loved it so much that I took some $$$ that I earned (yes, I discussed this with Big Daddy P.S.) and I went and bought this...I need all 5 of you ladies that read this blog to give me your HONEST opinion! I'm going to paint my sewing room this color....



TA-DA!

I really love the color - but, would it be too much on all 4's. I'm not the paint gal to ask - I struggle with every paint decision but I know at least 2 of the other gals that LOVE paint! good luck - I'm anxious to see the outcome and I really do love your new curtain. way too cute!
