I'm very happy with the color that I chose for the bedroom. It is from Glidden (ICI) paints and the color is called Fossil Gray. It is perfect. After painting 6 rooms in this house, this is the first color that actually turned out exactly the way I wanted it to.
I was about to run to the store on Tuesday to buy curtain rods, but as I was walking through our yard with a friend, we discovered all sorts of Bamboo growing near the edge of our property. So I'm going to saw some off and make curtain rods with bamboo. Won't that be neat? I'm trying to figure out what else to do with all this bamboo.
I would like to make some fabric art like this with our monogram on it and hang it above the bed. I would also like to a nice summery bedspread to use and fold this quilt up at the bottom of the bed. This quilt is quite special to us as it was hand stitched with over 4500 pieces by Andy's Grandmother. It was a wedding gift from her. Isn't it lovely? I really do love the feeling of sleeping under a nice soft and thin cotton quilt.
