I’ve had HGTV on all day and apparently it has begun to wear on me. I just upholstered the lid of my chest with a sage colored suede material. It was quite the job since the only staple gun I could find was staple-less. I used upholstery tacks and made do with a hammer.

Now I am looking at the left over suede and suddenly thinking that would work just fine for curtains – there is plenty left. I just purchased a childs singer sewing machine – it only does a chain stitch – but that should be enough to make some rough curtains that won’t cost a fortune. All I have to do is find myself some gold cord and I can make some tie backs. I am going to search for a nice gold pillow too to bring it all together.

I am thinking red, sage, and gold will make great colors for my room and I can work from there! 🙂
