Well, my dining room is finished-or almost finished. I got my new valances put up yesterday morning (the UPS man dropped them off the day before as we were headed out the door, so it had to wait until yesterday). I only have one bare wall, but I have a plan for that. I am going to create something for that wall. I have lots of ideas spinning in my head, and if I wasn't having Easter dinner at my house, I would be downstairs working on it right now. I would love to have it done before everyone comes over, but I just don't think there will be time for that. It is a fairly big project I'm thinking about. You'll just have to wait and see.
So-here are some before and after pictures. Now remember, when this room was last done, those colors were really 'in style.' I have grown to dislike them and it was really time this was done. If I liked painting and such, it would have been done sooner! Also, when you look at the before pictures, I had already started to pull wallpaper and the border down and then remembered that maybe I should take a couple of pictures. The wallpaper border wasn't really hanging like that :)
As you can see, I like baskets. All of those you see I have made myself. It is another hobby of mine-although I have not made any now for a couple of years. I just have too many hobbies and not enough time!
OK, off to do a little more cleaning and maybe a little creating today...you just never know!
