Another Big Project

First things first:
Thank you all for your lovely comments on my birdbath! I am on the lookout for a greyer rock. I'm glad you liked it.

Well, the kitchen re-do is stalled.

I worked, honest, I did. But there was a birthday party to prepare for and host and then two days of rain. It got sunny again for a day, and then, more rain.

So we've come to a screeching halt for a bit.

I am painting.

Over at The CSI Project next week there's a party for "Pottery Barn Inspired" projects.

When I read that, I thought two things at once: I wonder what PB is up to these days? and what am I going to do with that upstairs powder room? (It's the second one in the post.)

So I went and had a look-see and found this:

(So this is why I'm seeing ruffles in unusual places all over the place!)

And I thought two things at once.
Hmmm. this window needs, um, something (other than a towel).

and, I can do this. (The fabric is in the wash as we speak.)

I'm not stopping there, of course. Oh no. Why be sane? Here are my inspiration images.

(Actually, after posting, I realised that my images reflect a certain schizophrenia in my taste. So, I went back to the "drawing board" and pulled out only those I really, really liked. I tend to resist specifying my tastse, exactly. I feel as if it narrows my options. We have no PB here. In any event, these are they:)

Nuts--and yet, so much fun.

I adore the PB why is it that we don't have one. I'm moving in two weeks and just looking at your inspiration pictures are getting me excited! Gorgeous, as is the towel ;)
