This is my third and last "Monday Made It" post. Goodbye to lazy summers and hello to school starting!
Oh, I so love my two newest projects. Love, love, love them!
First up: Lovely Curtains
I already showed you my little curtain for my window in the door. I liked it so much that I decided to make curtains for all of my windows. I got the inspiration from here. However, I could not find an adorable plastic tablecloth so I found a paper one I loved and laminated it. (Thanks to Lakeshore and their 29 cents/foot laminating charge, my total cost for tablecloths and laminating came to under $20. Not too bad since I have 34 feet of windows!!!) Yes, my new room is giant-sized and I have windows running the entire length of one long wall! Love, love, love!
...and now onto my favorite of all favorites ... My File Cabinet. True confession: I am in love with my file cabinet!
I got the inspiration from here.
I did not take a before picture so you will have to imagination a perfectly fine, gray file cabinet. Nothing wrong with it at all. But nothing to write home about. Now look at it:
And here is another look:
And a closeup:
Love, love, love, love, love!
First I spray painted the file cabinet. (My beloved custodian hauled it outside for me and then brought it back in the next day when it was dry.) Then I used a white paint pen to draw the lines. I know it looks like a five year old drew those lines, but it was me trying my best! I actually think those crooked old lines look quite charming! So this file cabinet is now, officially, my favorite part of my room.

Love to all,
