Grain sack towel turned cushion

I needed a cushion for my dresser turned bench.  I put this in front of my big window in the dining I was searching for material and then remembered I had this vintage grainsack towel my mom in law had given me years ago.  It was the perfect size for the bench.  I added ruffles to the ends ( I know, no surprise :))  But I do like how it turned out!

DIY drum shade

I am trying to make my bedroom more romantic looking.  It was the last room in the house to get painted and it wasn't what I was hoping for.  So I am starting to redo it. Starting with a new chandelier, from IKEA (love that store) and I wanted to add a drum shade to it.  I started with some chicken wire and formed it in a circle.  Then glued on my material that I got at Joanns on sale.

I Love how it turned out, you know how sometimes what is in your head doesn't always turn out , this did  YEAH!!!
