My Decorating Secret


Whenever I search in stores or online for pretty, cotton tablecloths nothing ever turns up in my price range (which isn't much). One day while wandering through Target in my usual shopping trance, I found myself drawn to the floral patterns of the Simply Shabby Chic line of curtains. Maybe a bit too girlie for windows at my house (with a husband and 2 boys) but possibly on a table -- a smaller dose of girlie. I bought a window panel for our dining room table. It fits perfectly and is washable. On a more recent visit, I noticed that many items in this line are on clearance. I grabbed a patchwork valance not even having plans for it. Maybe someday a pillow? Today I found its perfect place: a table runner over my sideboard and it coordinates with the curtain tablecloth!
