Checked Off The List

I finally got around to hanging panels for one of the windows in the living room. The other window is in a difficult spot for me to reach. For the window I just did I had to stack 2 stools to reach it. Oh the joys of being small.

The panels are Eivor from Ikea. I really like the little details on them. I wasn't originally going to go with such a bold print, but when I saw them I had a feeling they would work well in our space. When I was at Target the other day I stumbled upon this brown pillow and thought it would match well also.

I'm sure you can't tell, but it has a bark pattern similar to that of the panels.

We already had the blue panels. I've just left them layered for now. I have plans to add bamboo shades instead of the venetian blinds. I think they will pull the room together more. The window is slightly open for the cat. She gets to go in and out onto the screened in porch.

The room is finally starting to come together. Of course, as soon as I mark things off the to-do list I add a few more. I guess it's a never ending process.

The items in red are new :)
