Now that the holidays are over I want to get some projects going to make the winter seem just a teeny bit shorter. I have wanted to "cottage" up my living room and dining room for the longest time, and thought I would start by making curtains for these rooms. I am undecided between these two fabrics though I am leaning toward the check. I LOVE red gingham.
this and like this and this.
After I make the curtains, I really want to attempt to slipcover my sofa. During an episode of what could have only been insanity, I chose a red chenille sofa. Doggie claws are not kind to chenille, and the red I chose is more goth inspired rather than a cheerful cottage red. I have something like this in mind. Done in something machine washable since we are not a tidy family.
