Project in Progress - Kitchen Frame

Last week, I made a killing at the original U.S. Ikea store! I bought a few things to help with my move into a smaller room. Here is what I purchased:

EMMIE LAND Bedding Set

LACK Side Table (as a nightstand)

Curtains Finally Finished!

After many weeks of putting this off, I finally have finished the bathroom curtains. Despite my lack of sewing skills and the curtains ending up a little too long, they look nice!

MISSION: Redecorate Living Room
