Way, way, way in March, I shared my plan and inspiration for re-doing our guest room here. I really didn't intend for this project to linger as long as it has, since I do not need to repaint or replace flooring, or anything major like that. Just a décor re-do. But here we are on October 1st and the transformation has been a slow go.
I have finished my new-so curtain panels from a Target tablecloth (although I am pretty sure I will be adding a lining to give them a little more substance and to help buffer the northern breezes.) Even if I don't get to that for awhile, they have a marvelous drape and weight just the way they are. I will be changing out the rod because the existing one just isn't strong enough for the weight and is a bit droopy.
Besides the curtains, we did make a little addition this past weekend that I am over the moon about. I purchased a mason jar pendant light from Piper Classics, which Mr. Bluebird put up for me.
I thought it would add a bit of charm over the desk and anytime I can use an Edison style light bulb I am all over it! The lamp cord is an old fashioned cloth style and it is suspended from a vintage-y pulley system, so it can be raised or lowered.
Here the lamp is up close and personal - so cute, I think!
I apologize for the next pic - pretty bad, but hopefully you will get the idea. The cord will relax quite a bit now that it is out of it's packaging.
Such a pretty glow at night - it is the first room you see when coming up the stairs at our house. It also looks very cozy from the outside of the house, too - bonus!
I am working on the headboard today, and still have a few other things to do before I call the room complete. Hopefully I will do a full reveal by the end of the month, but no promises there! For such a small room (10X12), it sure has been a long process.
