Vintage Chintz - Finishing Touches



I have been working on my living room for the past couple of weeks.  Re-painting, re-arranging, making new pillows and hanging drapes.
I found these beautiful vintage chintz drapes at an antiques store some time ago.  They are gorgeous!  They have the perfect amount of yellow and "pink" to bring the room together.  Previously they were hanging alone.  For a change.....  I hung pink silk drapes in the middle and vintage lace sheers in the center.  My sweet hubby hung the new rods and the vintage tie backs.  They look so beautiful together.  I love those moments when things come together even better than expected.
I've got to add the accessories and......   I'm done!! 

It's raining and cloudy outside.... so my pictures aren't that great.  Maybe I can take better ones when the sun returns.



Have a great weekend!
Elizabeth

Hi Elizabeth,
I love chintz and I have two pairs of lovely ones hanging in my closet. After seeing how pretty yours look, I just might have to get mine out and hang them up.

Your living room is looking great, and you've convinced me that I need pink sheers in our living room.
