A Little Fabric....

I've discovered that a little fabric goes a long way!

I've been thinking that the french doors leading to my piano/t.v. room have been lacking a certain something. I thought about covering them with some panel curtains but I didn't want to lose the light and the view into that room. Luckily I found some great fabric on sale for 70% OFF!!! I think I just may have made The Nester proud with my 'mis-treatment'!

Before:

The wall was bare and needed a punch, plus the molding near the ceiling stops right in the middle of the room? Don't ask me why.

With a few tips from The Nester and some of this...

We get this...

AFTER:

Ahhhhh! So much better, no?

I liked it so much I decided to do the same thing in my bedroom.

Remember this post when I talked about how I thought the long wall behind my bed needed something more?

BEFORE:

Not bad, but in need of somthing more...

AFTER:

Ahhh, just what it needed!

And would you have ever guessed that it's simple, old push pins keeping these bad boys up? I'll switch the pins out for something a little more permanent when I find the perfect rods but until then the push pins will do and the good news is that you can't see them even if you are right under them! YAY!

I'm in love with the results! But what I'm most excited about is that I spent a total of about $12 for the fabric in both rooms!! Yay me!

***On a seperate note, I found the photos I took from the day we moved in!!! I'll be posting before and after photos of different rooms in the house in the near future so stay tuned.***

That looks great! I've been thinking of doing something like this on one side of our two tubs {only one side has wall space for both}. I think I may just go for it!
