Meet the sexiest thing my bedroom has seen in a looong time:
My new little bench at the end of my bed. Well, not exactly new, as I bought it 13 years ago at a D.C. flea market for a cool $10. But I did give it a fresh facelift last night, with a snappy new bright blue and green silk taffeta top.
Now I bet you didn’t take The Zadge for the crafty type, did you?
Oh, but The Zadge has many sides to her
multiple personality disorder self. See, The Zadge went to a discount designer fabric store this weekend and fell into a fabric frenzy. Her crafty self went nuts and bought all these pretty fabrics. And by “crafty self,” I mean — see fabrics, fall in love, buy up loads of them and then realize I can’t even sew a loose button so what the hell am I going to do with all of this fabric — crafty.
So I bought that snappy blue and green fabric, thinking it would be perfect for pillows on the living room couch. And then decided to use the extra for that bench.
And I also bought ten yards of this $120/yard silk that was on sale for $20/yard…..
To balance out the usual puddles of poo in the dining room.
Oh, I’m sorry, it’s TULIP’s room and her window!

Those Fabric Frenzies sure do get
