“I Have Officially Lost It” – Tuesday!


I know it is Tuesday and I usually do a Teach Me Tuesday post, but today I am calling it “I have officially lost it” Tuesday.  So, yesterday I did a post on my Powder Bath – Before and After.  If you didn’t get a chance to see it, you can see it here.  Anyway … the whole reason I decided to do that post is because I got my new drapes installed in the powder bath on Friday and I was so excited to show you the results.  What the heck?  I completely forgot to show you the window treatments.

Holy Moly … I am worried.  I will just keep repeating my name and address to myself to make sure I don’t forget who I am.  So today will be an extension of yesterdays post.  Here is my new window treatment.

Try to concentrate on the treatment and not my terrible camera skills.  I know how much everyone likes to be blinded by the sun coming through that window.

I really love the treatment.  I found the fabric separate from the wallpaper, but it almost looks like the flowers hook up to the wallpaper.  It was a nice surprise.  I am really happy how it came together.   Thanks to my new friend and seamstress, Susan Stowe at Putting It All Together.

This picture is a little better.  The grass cloth blind was there when we moved in … it is a little cheap looking and might have to go sometime soon.  I would love to frost this window similar to what Sherry and John from Young House Love just finished in their bathroom.  Check out their great post here.  I would love to have the natural light coming through the window without giving the neighbors a show!

Oh – I feel so much better getting these pictures posted.  I just wish they would have been included with the original post about my powder bath.  Sorry all!

I promise that next Tuesday will be another Teach Me.  Unless, of course, I forget what day of the week it is or where I am?  Geesh!

About Missi @ havoc to heaven

I am the President and CEO of the Smith House (according to me). I am married and we have four teenagers all within 3 1/2 years of each other - including a set of twins. Let's just say I log more miles on my car then a NY taxi driver. I am one crazy, busy lady. But - I know that the kids will be off to college soon enough so I relish the craziness and take lots of Xanax (oops I mean baths). I love to see things that are in havoc turn into heaven on earth. I am a self taught designer who has a passion for paint colors, fabrics, vintage accessories and everything on Etsy and Pinterest! I hope you enjoy my blog. I will be showing all kinds of scenarios that have been taken from "Havoc to Heaven" - from remodeling, refinishing and maybe just starting from scratch!

  1. Missi,

    Just feel the need to let you know that whenever I see your email in my inbox a big silly grin just takes over in anticipation of seeing what direction your stream of consciousness will take. Truly, I enjoy seeing your projects and just love your presentation style!

    Thanks for taking the time to do this.
