after finishing the painting in the nook, i broke it in this afternoon by sewing some curtain panels for the big window in there. overall, i like the way they turned out, but more than anything, it just felt good to turn on my ipod and sew away. it went from being dour and rainy and cool to being ridiculously hot and humid out here in the pacific northwest, so sitting in front of an oscillating fan in the downstairs was nice. it's the coolest spot in the house!
here is a tiny after and before shot (because i got them backwards!). look at what a difference a coat of paint makes! the carpet is the same, because a) it's weird and b) i kind of like it and c) it's not really financially feasible to get rid of it or replace it at this time. i dig that this is the original carpet as well. says a lot about my little house!
