We are in our new house + Master bedroom redo on a budget

We have officially slept a week in our new house! Surprisingly, we are pretty much all unpacked (the craft boxes will await until another day) and just about all situated. I have curtains to finish and a few more things to hang on the wall, but that’s it.

It's a good idea to iron the fabric before you sew...
