Well...we, well I, finally decided what I was going to do with it. My inspiration came first and foremost from all of your comments here and here.
My visual inspiration came from this Candice Olson design (Attic Makeover):
Candice Olsen Attic Turned Living Room Makeover
And here is what Candice Olsen + Pumpkins equals:
I love how the sun shines through them and I can still enjoy the iron silhouette, without actually having to see them it from the Living Room:
I love these curtains, they are shimmery, so pumpkiny, so cheap! $16.99 for TWO panels at Marshall's! I needed 4 panels, so 2 packages.
I got the rod at Jo-Ann's, on clearance for $8.97! This is the BIG rod, the one that goes up to 120", so this was a great deal! I would have loved to have done the entire wall, but then I would have needed to special order a rod for that...but we might figure something out, I have extra panels, just in case...
I got this Halloween garland at Marshall's, too. My little guy made me (really he did! lol) hang this up! It is too early for Halloween stuff though, I'm bad! This sweet tin, has my Family name on it, I got it at etsy.com, I spray painted my name off, I love that stuff, even on digital pics!:
Doesn't my Fleur de Lis ceiling tin tile from Susie Harris look so much happier now? I think so. And now I can actually open my front door to guests and not be embarrassed! The curtains really make the iron wall pop, too, I just love how it all turned out!
Now I feel like singing, "Be-ba, ba-bomp-do-da-da, be-bomp, ba-bomp-da-dant-da-dah!" ;)
Don't you just love Candice Olsen???
