cuteness...



while nathaniel was at camp FOR THREE WEEKS(!) kelly and i redecorated our bedroom. (btw...the redo only took 6 days, not the entire 3 weeks). the project included extensive plaster repair, painting, furniture rearranging, and the placement of a cute, cute shelf to showcase my collection of vintage aprons--actually, the apron shelf was my entire motivation for redoing the bedroom.

oh, yeah, and the birdcages...



i love it!

the wall color is "river's edge" by behr. the curtains were made from a vintage cutwork tablecloth with a finished scalloped edge i picked up at a tag sale for $2. the birdcages (both cost under $5 each) were both from separate thrift store trips and are made by a japanese company called "hoie." inside the cages are fake birds from the craft store. the shelf was on sale for 1/2 price from the same craft store and painted with a bottle of glossy white acrylic paint i bought for 69 cents. the aprons each cost less than $2.

don't you love a bargain?
