In preparation of hitting the ground running, I already have some my new decor purchases and compiled mood boards for the living and dining rooms. They are crude and elementary, otherwise, I would love to share them but I'll spare your eyes.
I will be a busy bee during the first weeks of living in our new home. One of the first projects I will be tackling are the old bathrooms that haven't been updated. I will have to paint and/or reglaze two of the clawfoot tubs.
This is an idea.. I really like the look of this...so pretty. Do I have to use a special paint for this? I'm not sure. A trip to Home Depot is in order.
Also, I will have to make our old sinks look pretty, so I'm thinking of a sink skirt..maybe made from taffeta.
The sinks currently look similar to this:
But I want something like this:
So much better and I would have a little more storage space.
I love the look of this sink skirt and I knew it would be a challenge as I don't sew but thanks to the interwebs, I have found a pretty awesome no-sew alternative. Yay me! Check it out here.
Another project I'm sure that I will have to tackle are windows. While, I'm sure many of the windows will don pretty panels, like this:
I would like to have a little something-something going on with a couple of the rooms. Like a cool Box Pleat Valance:
Again, no sewing could be an issue but thanks to this no-sew DIY tutorial, I'm confident I can do it.
Another window treatment I would like to occupy my home is this:
I don't know what kind a treatment that's called but I LOVE it!
If you have or know of a great DIY, let me know. I would love to post it in my next DIY Inspiration post.
