The Latest Decorating Trend for Color Enthusiasts
Last week I shared my favorite projects for upcycling vintage sheets and fabric; this week I’m going to share charming ways to decorate with and use vintage afghans.
Lately I’ve been a bit obsessed with all things vintage. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed me sharing lots of my favorite finds.
