Curtain Call

Let me give you a tour of my favorite room in our home.  This is my wine drinking, ipad shopping and adult nap room. 

Many nights after work are spent here in complete silence snuggling with my kitty Biscuit as I recharge my batteries from a hectic day.

Each piece in the room holds special memories for me.  The Thomasville stiletto coffee table was a birthday gift from my daddy, the Z Gallerie pierre mirror was a gift to myself shocker for a job well done at work and the candle holder was found on a girls weekend shopping trip with my pal KK.  

Each time I looked out the windows though something was missing.  Even Biscuit was always thinking that we could do better. I realized that the windows just need some finishing sparkle. I went back to Target to purchase the matching faux silk panels and lucky me found out that they were being discontinued.  Quickly I did an Ebay search and found some for sale here. Phew...

Matching panels wouldn't give me the full sparkle so I stepped it up and picked up two allen + roth honey fabric roman shades at Lowes.

supplies check!

Oops.. measured wrong.  Good thing the curtain will cover these lovely little holes.
shhh.. don't tell hubby


Slam dunk! 
My adult nap room now feels complete!  Not bad for the wallet too as this little makeover was only around $75.00.

What do you think of my little makeover?

I know you said you were afraid to paint the room brown, but sometimes it's the darker colors that make a smaller room feel more cozy. I love the rug and the pictures, and think you did a wonderful job of decorating. I know you must enjoy having a special room just for you! Thanks for sharing on my party this week.

Linda @ it all started with paint said...

Okay, your link post title totally pulled me in ... what does that say about me?

Love, love the space. That drum shade is wonderful and I agree that the bamboo shades set off your Target/ebay find curtains perfectly!
