Design on a Dime.....

I am always a BIG fan of trying to do some DYI....but there is always that budget thing!!!

I was dreaming of a space to just sit and knit, catch up on magazines
or just gaze out the window.

Super helpful that the lid would open up for LOTS of extra storage.

I got Jim onboard for taking a niche area in our master bedroom
and creating a window seat.

His only stipulation....not to fill it with quilts like I did
with the other window seat in our TV room!!!!

So I have filled it with toys for the Grandbabies instead!!!!

I have tried to fill whatever left over time I have had by sewing cushions,
and yesterday I also covered the nightstand lampshades
to match the box pleated dust ruffle that I hope to finish this week.

Of course it makes things much easier when you have great help
...and as you can see I rely on ONLY the best.

So here is to a "real" design on a dime.....and SEW far I am LOVING IT!!!!
