Spring Cleaning Week 3: The Living Room. The Plan.

It's quite simple really.

Remove everything.

Wash everything.

Put back only what we love and use and which we find beautiful.

Switch winter for summer curtains.

These purple drapes were an experiment. Normally I put up brown ones--but I switched with my Mom as she wanted them.

In addition to these Spring Cleaning tasks, I have a fair bit of sewing I want to do in this room as well. My lack of fabric choices has been bothering me. I could order on-line, but there's that whole debt reduction no spend thing going on now, too. My "budget" for indulging my fix-it-up-itis is simply my blow money--$50 a month. And since I like my chocolate and paying a child for an occasional chore, it doesn't leave me a whole lot for buying and paying the shipping on fabric.

But I do have a few bleached dropcloths lying around. And paint. And bottles of that stuff hich turns ordinary paint into fabric paint aren't that expensive (and can be purchased at Michael's with a 40% off coupon, if need be).

But I am as nervous as heck about doing something like this: so don't expect anything fancy!
Wish me luck.

I've never heard of a stuff that makes regular paint to a fabric paint. Sounds interesting. Thinking of doing something patterned or solid colour?

I btw like those purple curtains, they look good with the carpet.
