Silk Drapes in the Workout Room!

Pin It

The workout room got a bit of a freshening up this past fall.

It all started with the single window in the room.

Definitely needed some sprucing up, no?

Enter the silvery grey silk drapes that I had found on clearance at Pottery Barn
a year or two before and this drapery rod from Target...

I called in the man to help with take care of the hanging of the drapery rod.

He's amazing with making sure things are parallel and plumb!

And he's much taller than I am, which makes the task easier!

Here's the transformation...

BEFORE                                                                  AFTER

Who says you can't have a little luxury in the workout room?

With the change of the seasons, the vintage ski board went to the shed.

In came this pair of vintage barber shop chairs and vintage Lion Paint thermometer.


Now I just need to actually turn on the treadmill.

Drat. No excuses now. :(

Hee. Hee. Like the drapes were the excuse to not workout. I can imagine the conversation...

The Man: "Have you been working out lately?"

Me: "Oh, daahling, you have no idea the struggle I've been facing. Don't you know I couldn't paaahsibly workout in THAT room!?

The Man: "Huh?"

Me: "Seriously, daahling. How could you paaahsibly expect me to workout in any room that does not have Dupioni silk drapery? The thought is positively barbaric!

Please note that the conversation above is not real! I don't really talk like that...unless I am mimicking Kitty from Dharma & Greg. If you have not watched the sitcom Dharma & Greg, head over youtube and get yourself a laugh, daahling!
