A dozen black and gold frames hauled up from the basement
What a difference a few wall decorations can accomplish:
You may have noticed some of the family portraits are upside down and sideways. I say "who cares!" Who wants their family's eyes watching them change out of their pajamas anyways.
I filled the frames with fabric:
The icing on the cake
My beloved pineapple curtain holder-backer (is there an official word for such a device?) and a gold curtain panel I already owned, can you even believe it?
I must mention that I still want to paint the room, make a headboard, figure out what to do with the opposite window with a radiator underneath it and scrounge up some bedside tables. For now, picture me patting myself on the back, a good start for $0.00.
