I have had a very productive three days!! I don't know why this sudden burst of energy, but I hope it sticks around :) After being sick last week, I was extra motivated to get my house back from the hurricane that had devoured it, hahaha, then I moved on de-wallpapering our hall bathroom, which is getting painted and bead-boarded this weekend, yay! And, I've managed to whip out the boy costumes. Here's Obi-Wan:
I took the easy way out on Kelby's Yoda costume. The only good cloak pattern I could find was two sizes too big and required a whopping 6 yards of fabric (more than Casey's! What????) So I bought an extra small women's v-neck, long-sleeved shirt and cut it up until it resembled a toddler's Yoda robe, hahaha. A black ribbon and a flannel designed-by-yours-truly Yoda hat later, and we had this:
(terrible picture, I know)
And here it is now:
The wood panelling was around the entire perimeter of this room and we removed and retextured everything except for this area. We didn't want to destroy the built-ins so we simply painted the paneling and the fire place white. Even though there's a sliding door to the left, this room doesn't get a lot of light, so the changes we made made a huge different in the brightness.
Here's another before view:
