New drapes - No more echo!

Drapes are up in the studio and the echo is gone! I'm busy working on several projects today, as you can see by the looks of that table.  I just wanted to share a few quick pictures today.  Forgive me for my lack of attention to my photo editing today! I'm working on handmade goodies to share with you too.
Here's a close up of the trim.  The room feels really cozy now. The drapes cover that green accent wall that I've never been too fond of too.  I've left the palm tree in the corner for now for height. I'm sure it will likely be replaced with some vintage find like a ladder or shutter in the future. For now, it stays. This is Florida after all.
Here's the dining room before and after. Funny thing, both times my kids were using the chairs for something!
Helps finish things off in here.  Here's a close up of the two panels and the fun brush trim.  I guess I need to put those two other chairs back! The kids steal them for the office when they are playing computer games with friends.
The husband is ready to replace the lights in the foyer and dining room now.  Sounds like a plan to me! Get ready to join me in April for a month of giveaways! I've got so much to celebrate with YOU. Get ready for some great handmade items with a twist...there's a theme. Any guesses? I'd love to hear!  Have a blessed Sunday. Linking to -

  7. I love the drapes...and the nice high ceilings in your home! The mirror and tall lamps look beautiful in their, too. We added drapes throughout this house when we bought it! We weren't used to vertical blinds! lol We kept them in our Florida room though...and they work great in their. We also had all of our windows tinted and that made a huge difference! I love Florida! ♥

  9. Hi Vicki,
    I LOVE your drapes! I need to get going on mine too!
    I can't wait to see what you've got up your sleeve for April! Does your theme have anything to do with Easter? Or Spring? Can we have a hint? ;)
    Have a great Sunday.
    Hugs,
    Sonya

  10. The drapes really finish the rooms, I hope the inspiration sticks with me and when I get home from vacation I will get to the drapes in our livingroom. I think your theme for your giveaways will be spring. That is what is continually on my mind.

  15. I didn't know that would get rid of an echo. Learn something new every day. They sure are pretty, as well as obviously useful!

  16. Wonderful drapes! I like that they go from ceiling to floor. I just bought some drapes and I think that are not long enough. I guess I might sew on some matching fabric to extend the length. Thanks for sharing.

  27. Your window treatments look gorgeous Vicki and I still can't get over how much your studio looks like it belongs in a magazine! Every time I see it I feel like I am looking at a pic from the Ballard catalog. You are doing a fabulous job! :-)
