Even though I said my next project would be my front room …. I did find myself skipping around a bit.  Maybe it was the HUGE snow fall we just had!

I recently discovered a blog that was local to me :  Pigtown Design
I love a blog that references places I know like Second Chance, Inc.
I also love when I learn something new. 
Pigtown Designs introduced me to Debois Textiles.  Which became a true love at first visit.  Basically, discount fabrics … aka a little piece of heaven not far from Raven Stadium.

 

Here is my kitchen after a fresh coat of paint:
I like to think good bones … just needs some warming up.

This rug from World Market was my inspiration piece for the room:
(all my rooms start with one piece)

So after my first trip to DeBois I found this fabric:
For $4.59/yard!
curtain fabric

JUST What the room needed!  $14 in fabric changed the whole feeling of the room.  Warmed it right up.  I will post more pictures of the whole room together … it is close now … almost perfect!

P.S.  I will also discuss those sand jars on the window ledge.
