Here is the dining room wall before...
And finally, here the "finished" product. I used "finished" tentatively because I am sure I will end up changing pictures and frames a million times. ;)
I think I like it for now. But I need to bring some more yellow in the room to make it work.
How's this for a funny story? I went to a fabric store to pick up some gray & yellow fabric to make a table runner. I asked the lady who worked there to cut a yard for me. She asked me what I was using it for. I told her, "I'm making a table runner." She then proceeded to tell me that one yard was not enough fabric. I told her I was going to cut the yard in half and then seam it together. Her response:
"WELL, THAT'S NOT GOING TO LOOK GOOD."
Ouch. I felt tears welling up (female hormones are such an interesting yet wonderful gift from God, right?) Seriously, I am NOT a professional sewer. My house is NOT on the Columbia Tour of Homes. My freinds and family do not care one bit if I have a seam running down the middle of my table runner. Really.
I just told her nevermind and left the store. I think I will just order some online. Where they don't ask you what you are making.
