I finally pulled out my sewing machine and since it's taking up over 1/2 of our counter space - literally, that's all of the counter space - I figured I better get over my fear of messing things up and start working on some of these project I've been bookmarking forever.

I've been looking for a shower curtain for forever and couldn't find anything I really liked until I ran across this table cloth at Target. Yes, the walls of our apartment are mint green and the carpet is dark green but I've decided to ignore it and use my pretty turquoise stuff anyway :)

Since button holes are terrifying, I decided just to sew a pocket on the top of the cloth for the rod and use a 2nd rod for the plastic curtain. It's kinda bunchy at the top, but I'm dealing with it.

Propping the pictures up on the rail is the first step to hanging them, right?

The combo of plastic apartment blinds and a window unit is a real beauty, but I decided to try to hide it in our bedroom using this tutorial of some faux roman blinds. Don't you love all the Ikat prints out right now?!

And now lets pretend it's all pretty with no window unit -

I'm about to drive James crazy by moving stuff around, but we're almost - almost - all unpacked and moved in!
