Yesterday I was able to perform some "no cost decorating" in my family room. I'd been looking at some online pictures of a beautiful country cottage when I found myself admiring their French doors.
Then I started thinking about the French doors in my family room and wondered.... hmmm, what would happen if I removed those drapes I really didn't like?
I pulled one of my dining room chairs into the family room and (perhaps showing a lack of common sense) stood on the chair and removed the drapes from the decorative brass rod that held them. Wow. Amazing. Gorgeous.
I knew there was beautiful woodwork behind the drapes but it was just like the picture. It entirely changed the look of that room... and without paying a dime.
I love serendipity decorating moments.
