A simple solution

See this cord/chain?  I hate it, have since I put it up

I always meant to paint the cord brown like the chain, but it never happened.  So yesterday it hit me!  A cord cover, couldn't be that hard, right?  And I already had some black/white toile.  So....

I measured the length of the cord, only 7 ", so doubled plus, took a one inch seam and added velcro dots, (all I had on hand.)

So much better.

Lurve it!  Borrowing a phrase from Thrifty Decor Chick!

This is in my powder room downstairs.  I talked about redoing it here.  Now I am adding a few touches of black!  I will post about the new addition when it comes in!  Excited to see it!

Have a great Easter Weekend.

What a great idea! I've seen people cover them with fabric, but never saw them use velcro. Genius. I am looking forward to looking around your site!
