Ive been thinking on what to do with the bare window in my office. Its an odd width and length which rules out ready made options. I don't want to spring for a custom made one - mostly because I'm cheap but also because I haven't seen anything I love enough that is worth $300+ dollars.
So Ive been trying to come up with some alternate ideas. I stumbled upon this photo:

It got my wheels turning on how I could make something like this work for me. I don't have the ability to do anything like this freehand but I could certainly design it on paper and then trace using paint pens. Obviously, I wouldn't do a coffee machine since that makes no sense. And I need something a little more solid to block the view a lot more. But maybe I could do a typewriter or some other office appropriate imagery. Or maybe a pretty pattern? What do you think?
And then moving onto the floor, Suzie found this great Zebra pattern rug from Overstock for me.
Again, Im being a tightwad here in holding off on spending this much money on something I really don't need. But that doesn't stop me from admiring it, does it?
For the record, Im so NOT an animal print person. Not because I find animal prints morally offensive (I don't) but because I think then tend to look a little too garish for my tastes. But for some reason, I think this room needs something a little crazier than I normally go for. What do you think? Too much? The trend is over?
