When I bought my home I kind of thought it was cute that all the rooms ran together, but as I began decorating I realized I didn’t want every room to be decorated in the same colors. I had a huge open space in the dividing wall which ran the living room and formal dining room together. I wanted originally to put in low shutters to divide the space, but the cut out was such an odd size the shutters would have to be custom made. This was not currently in the budget. My friend had a similar problem, she wanted to divided her living room from her kitchen. Hers also was an odd size. I got the idea to cut long thin rod iron bed posts to use as rods. I cut one for her then one for me. She has really cute little chef curtains on one side and checks on the other. She used clips with rings to put hers up. I just sewed mine. A piece can be purchased at Lowe’s that hangs the rods in these kind of odd spaces. Here is my version.
All the strange lights in these pictures are from my crystal chandelier, purchased from Goodwill new and still in the box for $11.00.
I have been working on redoing my dining room It is actually my favorite room as it is where we do all birthday and family parties. It is a project long in the making. The room used to be blue with a nautical theme. It is now in gold and coppers with a gypsy theme. Will show several more projects then the whole room. Have a great week ,with love from The Victorian Rabbit.
