It was a "no brainer"! When we signed on the dotted line to purchase our little cottage, my mind would race with thoughts of where would all my furniture go? Which pieces would be sent immediately into storage and which would have a place in the cottage? All concerns aside, there was one thing I knew for sure. Out of everything I owned, one piece.... one antique, chippy piece purchased at an estate sale.. would have a perfect place to rest. I saw it so clearly in my mind!
When you come through the side door... no, don't even think of ringing the front door bell as I only think of all of you as side door, shout "hello" kind of friends.... there are three little steps leading to the main floor. Three little wonky steps that are capped off by a window. I knew it was in this window that my chippy piece of iron grating would rest. And there it is! This odd placement of a window now had significance!
This piece of wrought iron that had been painted creamy white and aged through the years was now secured within this space.
The detailing is fabulous!
And just as I knew this piece of iron grating belonged here, I knew the exact window treatment to sew for it.
A delicious piece of vintage linen sewn with a rod pocket on one end. Sides left rumpled from being stored away in someone's attic. All roughly bunched up in a loose roman shade form.
Funny how some things come together so easily! A "no brainer" that leaves me feeling so contented with the end result.
