It has been almost four years since we moved into "The Money Pit".
I thought it would be fun to take a look back over the next few weeks
of how far this home of ours has come.
I have no rhyme or reason behind this, but thought I would start with the master bedroom.
Oh wait, I do have a reason....
My mom made some new window treatments for the master bedroom and
I'm dying to show them to you.
Here's a peek before I show you the ugly before pictures.
Before we bought the house, it looked something like this....
Once the renovation started, it looked like this for a short while....
Shortly after we moved in, it looked like this.....
Last year, I made a few small changes and it looked like this for a short while....
And these were the drapes, which were also used in the master bedroom at our old house.
I found a huge bolt of indoor/outdoor fabric on clearance at the Frontgate Outlet.
I never did measure the total yardage, but the tag said 50 yards. It was $100!
I had no idea what I would use it for, but I just couldn't pass it up.
As soon as I got it home, it hit me, master bedroom drapes.
My talented mother came to the rescue and made them for me.
The woman has mad sewing skills!
She delivered them when she came to visit this weekend.
We wasted no time getting them hung.
You know I love stripes, right?
This is even better than stripes, it's stripes with a pattern.
Here's a closer look.
Initially, I wasn't sure how I would like them up against the Sherwin Williams Sea Salt wall color.
As soon as they were hung and I took a step back to take it all in, I fell in love.
I'm still working out a few kinks with the pleats.
Don't worry, I'll have these beauties trained in no time.
Oh, and as luck would have it, I still have about 25 yards of this gorgeous fabric left.
I'm pretty certain it will be making an appearance on the back porch.
Believe it not, I went back to the Frontgate Outlet the next day
and bought my mom 60 yards of a different fabric - for $100.
I just can't pass up a deal like that.
