I figured I'd update with some pictures of completed projects.

Here are two kitchen improvements:

A roman shade for one of the kitchen windows. I used a tutorial here: Roman shade tutorial in 20 pictures or less.

I really like the way it turned out and the instructions were super simple.

Here is another kitchen project - an under cabinet curtain. Ignore the plywood floor. We've had some flooring delays because the hard wood floor we ordered was back ordered. It is in now and may start going down tonight! How exciting!

This is a closeup of the under cabinet curtain. I added some of the striped fabric from the window curtain to the upper part of the curtain. Both fabrics were from Joanns - 54" decorator line.

Outside things are coming along as well.

Josh is making us a patio in the backyard. He's making sure the sand is an even 2"

Laying the patio bricks.

Homeownership is fun! Now that things are *MUCH* more settled, it's fun to get into the projects. The craft room has had lots of progress as well. I'm just not ready for photos yet. Stay tuned!


  1. Love the fabric! Can't wait to lounge on you patio...good job Josh!

  2. I am going to use that tutorial! We will be in our house 8 years in July and I've never put curtains up - just been using the shades the previous owners left behind. I really should make a statement. Thanks for finding the tut!

  3. I love the curtain! You're going to have a blast this summer.

  4. Thank you so much for the link to that tutorial! I am SOO going to save it in favorites. I am so impressed with how your curtain turned out, it looks store bought. I've always been afraid of making anything other than the basic 'pocket' casing curtains. You have definitely inspired me!

  5. I forgot to add that I also really like your under the sink curtain. Love the fabric too!

  6. Love,love,love it! So talented and I'm so grateful. The tutorial for the Roman Shades is one I've been looking for and yours is The Best. Thanks again for another lovely project. You are Oh so Clever.

  7. Love how thrifty and clever you are :) Great job!
