|Some of the window treatment pieces, ready for the lodge|
If you've been following this blog for any length of time, you may recall that back in the Spring, a long term building project was finally completed, and we spent a week moving furniture, appliances, and many other items into our new family vacation lodge.
One of my responsibilities with the new lodge was to construct all the window dressings. I like to sew and create, so this was a good challenge for me.
|This curtain left me with plenty of scraps.|
I gathered up the few supplies I'd be needing for this little project - a plain, square picture frame, some of the leftover orange fabric, scrabble-type wooden letters, and my trusty glue gun.
I had somewhere come across (or possibly made up, it's highly possible) a word that was new to me, and that always made me laugh when it came to mind, the word "deslobification." I picture a bathroom as a place where one walks into it as a slob, cleans oneself up, and exits with all things in order = one is deslobified. It is, therefore, a place of "DESLOBIFICATION." Isn't that an awesome word? I wonder if it's in any dictionaries, anywhere. I'll have to check.
Anyway, next I made sure I had enough of the letters I needed for the message on my wall sign.
After that, I attached a piece of the leftover curtain fabric over the cardboard in the picture frame, and placed the letter tiles in the positions where I wanted them to be.
There is it, simple and done. A good use of the leftover fabric, and a quirky and fun addition to a very blank wall that needed a little sumthin sumthin. It hangs right beside the bathroom vanity.
Do you think anyone will notice?
