Desperado..... :)

Why don't you come to your senses...
This song would play in my head every time I stepped foot into this room.
 
I couldn't do it. I COULD NOT live another minute in this ugliness.
I don't even care if it's going to be demoed in a matter of weeks.
My new shower curtains were just sittin there starin me in the face...
begging to be hung up:)
 

So I grabbed my trusty glue gun, a bolt of fabric that I had in my hoarder
fabric pile and......fixed that mess!
 
 
Yeah that's right. I stinkin hot glued that fabric to the walls!!
The fabric is 54" wide and I hung it horizontally so I wouldn't have any seams!
Score!
The hubby trimmed the top and bottom with some scrap wood.
 
 
LOVE this shower curtain:)
 
 
How adorable is that perfectly worn orange stool!! :)
Just one of the many fab finds I brought home from Junk Bonanza back in March:)

 
The hubby hung this cutest of lights! Another Junk Bonanza goodie:)

 
 

 
So there is one room in this entire house that feels put together.
Because just right outside the bathroom door.... chaos:(
 
 
Yeah it's a mess... but that means progress!!
And that makes this girl HAAAAPPY!!!

  6. Dori: You can also add fabric to a wall by using liquid starch. Put liquid starch in a paint tray and using a paint roller, roll it on the wall. It will be a bit messy. Place your fabric against the starched wall and press it so it sticks. You might need to use push pins to keep it in place temporarily. Fold seams over to create a neat edge. It's super easy to take the fabric down and the liquid starch comes off with water and a sponge. The fabric can be washed and reused. You have a great eye and I appreciate that you bought that green fabric - because you loved it -- and a use for it appeared. And it looks fantastic.
