This has been a productive week…although I am still in the “it is going to get worse before it gets better” phase of decorating. Thank goodness most of our purchases have been delivered and construction of the banquette has begun. I am still waiting on our bleached jute rug and the round poly foam for the back of the banquette. Needless to say it will be a huge stress relief when that arrives. Pretty much everything else can be bought off the shelf at this point.

So we are going to tackle her dining room. Its big and bland, but has the most stunning view you could imagine! Because of that view, we knew we didn’t want to pull the interior in a different direction, but play on the ocean views that you will see when you are dining.
I have been aching for a simple project. One I could do on my own while at home with the kids. So no power tools, no paint or sanding. I have a lot of projects like that on my list right now!
I was doing online shopping and came across a shibori tapestry that was on clearance. It was all the motivation I needed to finally tackle my headboard. I am slowly refreshing this room, so this seemed like a great project to keep the ball rolling. All it was going to take were some scissors, fabric and my sewing machine. Easy enough.
