Do your bookcases tend to look cluttered after a while? You don't notice it until one day when you start to decorate for the holidays, it hits you. Where did all this stuff come from?
You know the stuff I mean . . . . . boxes of pictures that you will put in a scrapbook someday, your kids yearbooks from every year of school from 6th grade on that they want you to "hold" for them, DVD's, all the electronics Hubby HAS to have to watch the weather channel (just kidding - I meant football or the Bourne Identity in HD). Here is the bookcase on the left side of the living room.
Now you don't!
I've had this for literally years waiting for the right project. I tea-dyed it first and hung them with tension rods. I didn't quite have enough fabric for these three units and the three units on the right side. I will fix them somehow by either adding some "antiqued" lace or some fabric that is really close. I don't want a big in-your-face contrasting fabric. The right thing will show up eventually.
But doesn't it look better already? It made it look so much cleaner when I walked in the room this morning.
One of the best things? The remotes work on the electronics THRU the curtains! No having to move them to use the remotes. Because I am pretty sure that I would have been the only one putting the curtains back where they belonged if you know what I mean!
