Yay! New Curtains and Transformed Fireplace!

Hey y’all!   How is your summer going?   We have been having a mellow summer and I’m thankful for that.   Our oldest son, along with our eighteen year old and our twelve year left this morning to Houston and I’m missing them already.  They’ll be gone for a week only but I feel so lost.  Ugh!  I think I will keep myself busy by painting everything I had planned before summer! 

Today, I’d like to share with you the curtains that I found for the living room and my transformed fireplace. 

This window had no curtains for a while.  I wanted that perfect set of curtains.  :)


I found these curtains at JCP.  The gold curtains have a subtle sheen to them and the sheers are white with an embroidered design to them.   The color on the wall is called “Tobacco Road”



I added a red and gold tassel to each side.  I love the color combination of red and gold!



I think they match perfectly with my fireplace redo as well.

Tobacco Road Paint

‘This is a “before” picture of the fireplace.  While I liked the mocha color, I didn’t think it looked good with the newly painted walls.  So out came the paintbrush and I proceeded to paint it! hee hee! :)

IMG_0061 (800x662) (800x662)[16] I painted the fireplace in Antique White by Behr.  I also dry brushed the same color (Tobacco Road) as the mantel on top of the Antique White.

Oh I DO like them, I do, I do, I do! Doesn't it just make you feel like a whole new room now? And you didn't have the pain of moving! Have a great day, Sandi

GIRL! I've been thinking about you! I am laughing at your past post about not being able to fit the blinds in the RED CTS. I've done that a time or two in my little G37Coupe. (I have to put the big pack of toilet paper or paper towels from Sam's Club in the front seat.)
But . . . we are ready to order the RED SRX!!!!
So my friend - we need to have a NEW RED CADILLAC PARTY!
Love your drapes! I just ordered new drapes for my living room from JCP and they were destroyed in transit and won't have any more until 9-30. Needless to say - I was UNHAPPY! :( Oh well.
Have a great day!
