On a more exciting note, I have ordered the fabric for the curtains and pillows. Hubby spent his summers in Washington state and some of his fondest memories are of the water. He loves boating, water skiing, wave runners & most of all the sun. And the apple doesn't all far from the tree, Peanut has developed a great fondness for boats and the water as well. Being that the basement is mainly the 3 boys' space, except for one very special area we carved out for Belle, I decided to pick fabrics that gives a subtle nod to the nautical theme. Paired with some simple diy artwork, the basement face-lift will be complete.
The fabrics are all by Premier Prints and ordered from buyfabrics.com, as I found them to have the lowest price and greatest selection. I am eagerly awaiting its arrival with excitement and quite honestly a little trepidation. I have no idea how my sewing is going to turn out (translation: Mom hope you are free to come bail me out). Truth be told though…anything is going to look better than what is there now.
Off to start the day, hosting a playdate for some of Peanut's school friends, a dentist appointment for me and then the kids start swimming lessons this evening. An eventful but not too full day.
