home decor photos--livejournal's other purpose
Today's first lazy Sunday home improvement project was decorating the barren upstairs hallways. I found cheap frames yesterday, and this morning I had a bunch of historic Corktown photos printed in 8x10 at Walgreen's. I like these photos a lot more than what used to be there when we first got the house.



My second project was reupholstering the dining room chairs. They had been reupholstered once maybe five years ago, but even that fabric was very worn, and in a drab green that doesn't go with my dining room. I went to Joann Fabric and felt as overwhelmed and helpless as... as an unaccompanied straight man in a Joann Fabric. I started out looking for something to match the violet-grey walls and area rug, but I decided to go with a more "risky" paisley-like design that matches the curtains but don't actually contain any violet-grey. Bob and mom came over and helped me attach the new fabric.



I guess it "ties in" the room, or something. I don't know what that means, but it sounds like something that people say on home decorating shows.

That rug really ties the room together, man.
