I am so happy the weekend is here! To be totally honest, this past week made me feel completely worn out. Between work, the house projects, and thinking about the house projects, I may have finally hit a wall. I told the hubby that I plan to sleep somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 to 14 hours (yep 14 hours) tonight to gather back my sanity. Hopefully my energy will be restored tomorrow so I can attack more to-do's for the Master Bedroom redo. Thank you everyone who left suggestions for the headboard! It was so nice and helpful for me to read through them since it's been a tougher week. Definitely made me smile!
Okay, now let's get to what I am Head Over Heels for this week! Drumroll...
Now, I am sorry to those of you that aren't local because you are going to be so jealous! SR Harris is a fabric outlet in Brooklyn Park that sells exceptional fabrics at HUGELY discounted prices. Everything you find is 50% off the tagged price and you can find just about any kind of fabric (seriously, check their list here).
I heard about SR Harris from a couple friends and they all said it was worth checking out. I wanted to make my own window treatments for the Master Bedroom so I headed there in hopes of finding something fabulous. When I walked in, this is what I saw...
OMG!!!! The place is HUGE! I almost turned right around because I thought I would never find anything when there is so much to look through. Sure enough, their website does say "30,000 sq ft warehouse".... guess I missed that part?
Anyway sorry the photos are bad, I took them on my cell phone. It didn't occur to me that a trip to a fabric store would end up photo-worthy but it was! I know I have never seen a fabric store that large before.
After taking my dorky cell phone pictures as people gave me strange looks, I decided to go forward with this "treasure hunt" for the perfect curtain fabric for the Master Bedroom.
Surprise! I found it!
(I'm sure you already knew since I am writing this post) I did indeed find something great, perfect, amazing for our Master Bedroom! Take a close look...
It is a dark khaki/ camel color that has streaks/distressed gold metallic paint on it. It was totally unique and something I haven't seen in any store before. I loved that it mixed a formal feel with a little bit of an edge. Alex even totally loved it's fun unconventional look... but I think he liked the discounted price I got even better! The original price was $10 per yard, with the 50% discount that brought it to just $5 per yard. I needed 10 yards of fabric for the window treatments which totalled just $50.00! That's the same cost of just 2 window panels from a store, and those would have only been able to cover 1 window. Holla!!!
What do you think of the fabric for the Master Bedroom?
Anyone else get worn out by thinking about projects too much?
Well, I feel a bit more energized after writing up this post! Or maybe I am just slap happy?!? Either way I better rest up so I can get some work done and start sharing it!
