One of my passion's is decorating. Passion is a kind way of saying I am obsessive/compulsive about everything decorating. I watch shows, I read magazines, I read blogs, all about decorating. I never seem to get bored with it either. My latest project is finally complete! It is a window seat in my kitchen! This project has been an albatross around my neck and I am thrilled/relieved that it is complete!
I love to decorate and cut corners. The rectangular pillows are actually $2 (on sale) placemats that I stuffed. The long pillow is a valance ($5 on clearance) that I stuffed.
The wainscoting is actually textured wallpaper. You can get it here. It is less expensive than wainscoting. You don't need power tools to apply it. It is paintable and only took me two hours to apply. To finish it off, I added a chair rail. You honestly can't tell that it isn't the real thing unless you touch it.
My daughters love the window seat and have spent hours playing there. Ironically, I still prefer using the kitchen counter.
Do you have any projects that you are currently working on? Please share!
