I think it's finally finished! With all the summer photography work I picked up, I was able to get these faux taffeta silk drapes. I was so pleased with the quality (they are fully lined) and price. I plan to use this company again for drapes. I got the drapery rod and ring clips from Lowe's. FYI-They have a great selection there and are moderately priced!
I also picked up this centerpiece from Target, but I wasn't as happy with the price. It was $30 and didn't come with the candles or leaves....
Anyway this was our last home improvement project for the year. We're saving up now to complete our master bedroom and bath. We want to have it painted, add some decorative pieces and purchase curtains/curtain rods for the room. Of course there will be progress pictures of that project along the way!
