home improvements...YAY!

I've never been great at decorating, but I do know that my house was very "BLAH" before this and now with help from Santa, my hubby and mom(partly from my birthday that is coming up soon too!), I was able to do some MUCH needed home improvements and I must say, I'm happy with the results :)
Here's a little sneak peek...





My house had NO curtains AT ALL and after watching
TOO MUCH, HGTV I came up with this!
And I already posted about my chair recovering project HERE!
Yes, there's still tons to do, but I'm pretty happy with how it all turned out!
Next item on my wishlist...LAMINATE FLOORING!!!
Maybe I should write my letter to Santa NOW?!?!

Beautiful! I don't have curtains up either - and this summer it will be 2 years since we moved into our house. I am jealous of your makeover!

My house doesn't have any curtains, either. That is on my "to do" list.

It looks great! I had curtains the same color and almost identical style as those until we redecorated last year.

You did a fabulous decorating makeover! It is a nice way to add a little smile to your face each time you see how beautiful it looks! The curtains look super! I hope you are doing great! We are getting more snow tomorrow night! I wish I could send you some. Have a great night!

Everything looks absolutely gorgeous. What a sincere and thoughtful gift from "Santa." I bet there will be other home improvements coming your way soon.
