Sunday with a Before and After

Pretty productive weekend. Mananged to finish a couple projects that I've been meaning to for months...


Mitzi, they're finally in the mail. Along with Here Fishy.
And...

The "Before" picture of the basement.

It's not much, but I wanted to cut down on the bowling alley aspect of the room.
Chose not to go with the Greg Brady route with beads, instead just some simple fabric panels hung from the ceiling.
Also, I took down the green sheets I had hanging in the window and made curtains out of the same material. Not sure if I'm done yet, but for right now, I'm pleased with the result.
After:
It's hard to tell in the picture, but the fabric nearly matches the walls.
My huband drove to see his beloved team play this weekend. That leaves the basement tv sad and lonely for company. Rather than putting the high-def to work for guys in tight pants, it's been put to service watching "Meet the Robinsons." If you haven't seen it already, do. It's one of the better kid movies out there.
Now, if I could only make some slipcovers for the couches...

Aimee - Thanks!

Joe- Dinner's at 2. I can send the list for the liquor store if you like. ;) This year, we're going to grill the turkey.

Sweet! You should buy some cute red slipcovers and then sew some cool pillows to go on them. Much easier!
