Our New Custom Curtains

Okay, maybe "custom" makes them sound a little bit more flashy than necessary, but they are indeed custom, because I made them.

Yup, I made them with our new bedroom specifically in mind. And the best part? It. Was. Simple.

I saw this exact tutorial on Young House Love (which is a flipping awesome blog and the couple who writes it (and their new baby) are so cute! You can find their DIY No-Sew curtain tutorial here.

Here are the pictures of our new curtains.



Mostly the bedroom contains solid colors. Obviously the walls, but the bed spread and sheets are all solids as well. The curtains add a fun pattern that also provides a general theme for the room. I'll be adding some nice prints that I picked up at Hobby Lobby for 50% off and a huge frame that was marked down from $50 to $10 over the bed to continue the leafy pattern.

Oh and I hung up the curtain rod all by myself! That was a pretty proud moment. The bedroom is shaping up nicely. Lots of more DIY posts and my first "rescued" furniture piece are coming this week!!!

Yes, I have been gone for quite a while. But it has not passed without a whole bunch of progress. Not exactly wedding progress per se, but progress none-the-less.

In super exciting news, Josh and I are moved in to our new apartment!!! It is amazingly spacious and I love it. Right now, I'm still in the process of clearing the massive mountain of crap that was tossed into the living for lack of a better place to put it, but don't worry. Pictures are on the way. It looks pretty bad-a if I do say so myself.

It has been pretty crazy around the soon-to-be Willis household. I experienced a super week of illness right before and during our move. Needless to say that was not fun. And with summer school and work, I have been a super busy bee. Which is okay with me. **Please see addendum**

Honestly, wedding planning has been at a stand still while we finish adjusting our life. And we're less than 2 months away from the big day. I need to get on the ball.

But, never fear, more updates will be on the way!

**Upon reading this post the FH flat out told me that I did not give him enough credit for being amazing while I was sick. So, in order to swiftly correct the situation I must say that my fiance is the best person to be with when I'm sick. He's comforting, caring, and all-over lovely. (Too thick?). I love you, honey. **
