Back to the shelf. A side view
LOVE how it turned out.
Now on to project #2 (or is it #3) New curtains! I love my Mother in Law, but it is undeniable that we have different tastes. A few christmases ago, she bought us curtains. They are a brown and baby blue paisley pattern.
See them in the pic above. Not really our style. So we finally updated them. We were searching for curtains for a while. Our window is kind of an odd height, and with the bench, we wanted something that didn't hang over too much. After store after store of ugly bland curtains, I decided to venture into the shower curtain aisle. Of course I only looked at fabric ones, and ones that look like real curtains. That is where I found these babies!
A Target shower curtain, that I think fits in well with our color scheme and style.
Also, an update on the Ikea couches. While in Florida, visiting my Grandfather, Andy and I spent the last evening in Tampa with Andy's aunt and uncle. They took us to the Ikea in Tampa and I got to sit on my beautiful Kivik couches. I must say they are just as comfy as I expected, and I will have them as soon as I can.
