The dining room received the most basic updates. We thought about doing away with it completely but I could never come up with another purpose so it is still with us.
Funny story about the fabric for the window treatments. I went to Lewis and Sheron in Atlanta a while back to look for some fabric for various rooms. I saw this floral and just fell in love with it. I am usually NOT a floral kind of gal but the colors were right on and it just spoke to me. When I was ordering it, the woman that worked there asked me if I had kids. I told her I did and I had 3 girls. She said with this fabric, I can tell this is a happy home. I’m not sure if she is like a palm reader when it comes to fabric but she continued to tell me that my fabric choice meant our home was a happy home and whenever my kids were having a “moment” and needed to be reminded of how good they have it to simply stand them in front of the panel and that would turn their frown upside down. She said you can’t help but be happy when you look at this fabric. Sold me. I bought extra yards for pillows. Who knew happiness exists in drapery panels? Now you know!
