Shabby Chic Petticoat

This morning I looked at an unfinished project and in less than 10 minutes was able to sew 2 white target curtains together, run twin through the rod area tie the top and wala,

A Petticoat for my treadmill.  I use my treadmill and need my treadmill but it is an eyesore, so now the ceiling fan in the room stirs the pretty white ruffles for an etheral feel when not in use! 

No I won't always have this table in front of treadmill but made for a staging spot!
oops several colors of white on wall, room still needs a painting!  I have decided on benjamin moores simply white!  Nice bright white looked better than the creams with the lighting in the room.

a little green with white

I put mirrors on the floor till I could find a place to hang but am enjoying the double mirrors on the floor and I think that is where they will stay

Petticoate took less than 10 minutes to sew and pull twine through the curtain rod part at top, gather and tie

Picked flowers from yard to put on washstand

Family heirloom crystal vase, my husbands thurmos........and two new starbucks pieces, water bottle and watchamacallit!  How did starbucks know my accent colors for my shabby chic sunroom

More Flowers picked fresh

Have a wonderful day everyone!  This Rachel Ashwell inspired sunroom will be painted and completed soon!

  17. My friend painted his treadmill white to match the other white things in his house. I though it would look bad but it actually looked really good.
