Another Sewing Project...

Join my 'Anything Goes Party'!

You would think I knew what I was doing, all these sewing projects.  Really I just go in straight lines and hope for the best!  I don't measure too much or cut to much...I just kinda wing it.

Like my new table runner.  I could have cut it down so it wasn't so wide, but you really can't tell, so I just tucked it behind the buffet.  Problem solved. 
 
All finished, and I lucked out with the fabric, it pretty much matches the framed art above in tone perfectly.

Close up of the pattern, ignore the weird pattern on the wood, this was a Craigslist find and the runner helps cover most of the damage.  I may paint it some day...just not Sunday.

Everything put back in place.  New lamp, HomeGoods.  I love it too, so much big and much brighter than the previous lamp.  New wall sconce, HomeGoods.  I really scored the other day.  I still need to buy a candle for the sconce, but I couldn't resit it.

Perfectly shabby.  That spot that looks like dirt on the wall, is really me just filling nail holes, I still have to touch up paint, but I wanted to show you my finds first! 

Hope you like what you saw!  Thanks or stopping by! xx

You are a sewing diva! I love how the color plays up the artwork! Cute cute sconce, too! Gotta love Home Goods! It should be called "you aren't leaving this store empty handed"! Ha ha!

Hugs,

I sew with a glue gun, so I would have tucked it behind the buffet too!
