A few weeks ago, I was in Hobby Lobby and decorative fabric was on sale. I saw the very fabric that my sister used in her dining room which I adore.....the sister and the fabric. I would love to have this fabric in my house, but I have no place for it............wait a minute............I could make a skirt for the pedestal sink in the powder room. And so I bought 2 yards and set it aside until I could get to it.
Yesterday, I got out the fabric and figured it all out. I sewed 2 gathered panels and attached them to the underside of the sink with velcro (one piece gets sewn on, the other piece has a heavy duty sticky back on it) It turned into an all day project but for you seamstresses out there, you could have whipped it out in an hour. I stop a hundred times to do other things like laundry and holding the dog.
While you're in here, you might as well see the throne. The cross-stitched Hackney was a wedding gift from one of my mother-in-law's good friends 25 years ago. I love it and probably appreciate it more today than I did as a young bride in '83. This little room is where I put all my blue & white. My first true love.........in decorating......blue & white. I still have a few odd pieces and they get displayed here. I think that's what I love about this fabric....the background is the greatest shade of golden khaki and the blues, reds and golds just jump out and hug me. Really.
