Thank you all so much for those wonderful comments on the bedroom makeover! Sometimes I AM even amazed how good a room will turn out when I have a small budget.
I have seen it proved over and over again out in blogland that "Necessity is the mother of invention" with so many wonderful projects created when they had to watch how the money was spent.
A while back I posted this picture on Instagram [sherryhdesigns]
Yup.....even though I do love the stripe....it was only a matter of time before this baby would get her white slip.
I called my favorite guy Jim and told him to pack up his machine and come on....
The stripe will still be around cause it is pretty versatile....
She can take a variety of pillows.....with no complaining.
And go from a winter to summer look with the change of a pillow.
So he got to work.....pinning and cutting.
I decided on no cording...I like my slipcovers to be kind of simple.
And....in no time at all it went from this
Of course she is really a "ho" as she demands a different pillow on a regular basis. In fact I was having a conversation with a friend of mine the other day.....she was telling me a story....and during that 15 minutes I changed out 5 pillows in my den from my "stash".
On a whim.
And got inspired all over again....to make a few changes at "Chez Sherika"
So that is how it goes around here....."mad scientist"...."mad designer" what is the difference.
Last night my husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at Bacchanalia.
My first time there.
Wowza....the presentation of the food was..... for lack of a better word.....incredible.
And since I am not a food critic.....I can not even begin to describe how it tasted.
But "Foodgasim" comes to mind.
There were 5 courses and a wine pairing with each.
And no less that 10 different people tending to your every need.
Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
Have a nice and relaxing Sunday.
I don't think it is going to rain in Atlanta today.....we'll see about that.
