Home Improvements

I've been wanting to redecorate our house for a while now. It was just time for a change. When Steve's grandma died we got her kitchen table and chairs. These things are truly an antique. We've had the table now for almost 9 years and it was time for a change. It wasn't easy though! This is what we found. It's newly re-finished and I LOVE it.

I found really cool fabric at Ikea and made these curtains. I have a bar on the bottom so I can pull them up and let some light in. I'm happy with the way they turned out.

I've hated these ugly shelves in the laundry closet since the day we moved in here. I found this fabric at Ikea also and made these curtains. I just put them on a tension rod with cafe clips. It couldn't have been easier. Now no more ugly shelves!!

And...for the REAL improvement! Years ago I lost my original wedding ring. We couldn't afford to get another one so I've been buying rings off ebay. I have to admit that it's fun wearing so many different "wedding" rings. But this has always bothered Steve. He wants me to have a real ring to wear. We had planned to go to a few stores to look at rings but we didn't have to. I fell in love with this ring the moment I put it on my finger. For some reason it looks gold but it's's white gold. And I LOVE it.

Aren't updates in the house fun? I love updating things - it's amazing what a little paint or fabric can do to a room.

And, WOW! I LOVE that ring. It's beautiful. :)
