And Now For the Simplest Window Mistreatments Ever...

Taking a cue from The Nester, I've decided to "mistreat" the itty bitty window on the door in my family room that goes into the garage and to join in her blog party today. It's not the most magnificent window dressing ever. Some gathering and layering would have been cute. But this is all I need! I just needed to add color and texture, and my garage isn't the prettiest view so I did want that covered up. So here ya have it! My first ever window mistreatment. See! I didn't even iron it before I showed you! I guess I'm learning a thing or two about "imperfect beauty" from that Nester. I decided to do this on Friday, and 15 minutes, $6, and one hot glue gun burn/blister later, here is what I pulled off:


Not bad for NO sewing, don't ya think? For a girl with no skills, this mistreatment concept is right up my alley!

See the before?

And once again, the after:

Thank you for the kind comment about my white sheer bedroom panels. You teased about copying...not greater compliment! Speaking of which, feel free to take a look at the photos I just posted of the walls we're stenciling in my daughter's room. We are using a huge french damask design. : ) M.L. @ http://the houseofwhimsy.blogspot.com
