Our living room is shaping up nicely:
I started brainstorming (with myself, ahhh the skills of an only child) about how to cover the door and the ugly ceiling area. What do I have in abundance? Shoes, sass, back issues of Domino, and fabric. Lots and lots of fabric. Cue the lightbulb.
I started with a piece of fabric a friend lent to me that I think started out as a bedsheet. A few thumbtacks later, and voila! A door/curtain!
Practically looks like drywall! OK, only if you squint, but hey, it's like a Monet? I haven't figured out how to get around the rough drywall edges yet but it already looks better from the far side:
And from the near side? Before and after!
I can't decide if this is the best idea I've ever had, or if Martha is rolling over in her grave with the trashiness. Either way, not having ancient dust bunnies divebombing us is the jam so I don't regret it, even if it is only temporary. You get to vote, classy or trashy?? Can we get away with it for a couple months?
