The Finished Screen

Dang, I wish I got better light in my bedroom, so that I could take a sun-lit picture of the screen, but I wanted to show you where it lives now. I picked up the floor lamp at Wal-Mart last night for $9; makes for a better reading lamp than what is on the dresser next to the chair.

I'm off to Hobby Lobby this afternoon, where Steve, the manager, is holding another ripped screen for me. I think I might try to get it even cheaper than the last one considering he had already moved it off the store's floor and into the warehouse as "unsellable." Ha!

Oh Dawn. Your screen is just gorgeous. I can't even begin to describe how much I love it. You are so very, very talented and it makes the perfect backdrop for behind that chair. I also can't believe you are getting another one, you smart girl.

How exciting! I am bitter about Hobby Lobby today though, as I drove all the way out to Stone Mountain and that location was closed. So I had to settle with measley Michaels.

just so you know, that screen should be in Southern Living, along with pictures of your house, and lots of little explanations of how you made everything just oh-so-darling.

i'm just saying. you've outdone yourself.

your jealous friend,

Gorgeous! Love it. Very creative and great foresight on your part to know how great it would look in the end.

Wow that screen is amazing. I also have a torn screen that I got for $4 at a yard sale. I havnt had the energy yet to try and refinish it. I will now, though I dont know if I have quite the patience for all those little squares ;)
