we adore all the windows too, many I will leave uncovered or just swag the top, but the bedrooms need room darkening shades. I am waking up at 5:30 and this must STOP. From the looks of the chaos of my sewing room, it will be a long time before i am able to make any roman shades. and the bathroom has a huge picture window over the whirlpool. So I am bathing in the dark for now.
Bought a metal canopy bed and will paint the master bedroom dark green, when that's done i will post that too. the room is large enough with very little furniture that it can take something that dark and dramatic, and i want it to be like a nest.
My kitchen changes have run into snags. Purchased the appliances ( they are sitting in my utility room) and the remodelers gave me estimates of 15,000 to 25,000 and I said GET REAL. so now i am acting as my own contractor. today I found a guy who would tear out and relocate some cabs that for $200. I hired him for Thrusday so I can finally get the refrigerator about of the middle of the kitchen. Then wednesday i am interviewing a "creative carpenter" who I hope will modify my existing cabinets so as to fit a range top in the counter without removing an entire wall of oak cabs and starting from scratch. I won't be eating out for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOG time.
