For Your Weekend

As far as Blogfest 2012 goes, there is officially no turning back now.  I went and bought myself plane tickets last night.  I found a price too swell to pass up and it's a done deal.  Let the squeals of excitement begin!

The next few months are going to be the longest of my life!

In other developments, I think I'm going to have to come up with a "Plan B" for my guest bedroom headboard.  I originally wanted to add an upholstered inset but the more I look at it, the less it's looking like a DIY-able option. There are a couple of spots that look a little tricky for an amateur to upholster.

See what I mean?

I'm all for budget-friendly, DIY solutions when possible but I also want it to look well done. The final product has to be one that I am proud to show off. I just don't believe in DIY simply for the sake of DIY.  What's the point of spending hours of my own time (and my own money!) on something that I'm not going to absolutely love? 

So it's onto "Plan B" and I'm not sure what that is just yet.  I've been trying to avoid painting but there may not be any other option. Maybe a grey wash treatment? I'll have to think on that a little more. Thoughts??

Speaking of headboards.  Jenny at "Little Green Notebook" is at it again with another DIY Tufted Headboard Tutorial.  She simply amazes me. 


Now that's a little DIY done right!

I'm kind of obsessed with patterned drapery right now.  Here are some of my favorites of late:




Is it just me or do solid window treatments seem particularly yawn-inducing now?

Here's a new blog well, new to me at least, that is pretty fantastic.  Any down time you have this weekend would be well spent at The Lettered Cottage. Tutorials and inspiration galore! On everything from design and DIY to photography. 

Have a wonderful weekend!
