I feel like window treatments have been an ongoing project since we’ve moved into this house. We started out hanging shades only where we needed them for privacy – and, now, we’ve been adding them in other spaces too to help with temperature control. Most recently, we added shades on the little side porch off…

What We’ve Been Up To

Wow – I was thinking it had been a while since I’d posted anything to the blog and it was probably time for an update, but I had no idea it’s been almost a year.  Crazy.  I guess time just got away from me.  Anywho, needless to say, I’m way past due in sharing what…

It’s been a couple of weeks since we installed the new room darkening shades in Haley’s nursery to replace her old wooden mini blinds (which required that the windows also be covered in foil to make the room acceptably dark for napping) … and I’m now realizing that we lived with the foil on the…

I’m so excited – I got the shipping notification today that the room darkening shades for Haley’s nursery should be here by the end of the week … which means we should be able to say goodbye to the foil (yes, foil) that’s been gracing her windows for the past month or so.  And I…

New Kitchen Curtains

I went shopping with my mom a couple of weeks ago and we found some really cute curtains that (after much discussion) we decided would be perfect for my kitchen. Remembering from last time, though, how frustrating the curtains / curtain rod / shade setup in the kitchen is and how much patience is needed…

When we installed the new binds in the kitchen a couple of weeks ago, we had to take down the old curtain rod that had been there so there would be room to mount the shades.  The old curtain rod was one of the standard white metal ones that was too small for the rod…

Slowly, but surely, we’re covering up our bare windows at least enough that the neighbors can’t watch everything we do at night.  Over the last few days, we finally got around to installing the blinds I ordered several weeks ago for the laundry room and the bathroom on the third floor.  It’s so nice to…

I ordered new roman shades for our kitchen last weekend and we spent yesterday afternoon putting them up.  The roman shades I ordered were the Cape Cod shades from JCPenney in the Golden Oak color.  Because we were concerned about keeping the appearance consistent between these shades and others on the front of our house,…

New Blinds on Order!

I finally broke down yesterday and placed an order for shades for a few rooms in the house.  Now that it’s getting dark earlier, I’m starting to feel more self conscious about the fact that we have nothing in the way of our neighbors watching us eat dinner at the kitchen table every night.  So,…

Our Shades are Up!

The shades we ordered about a week and a half ago for the master bedroom and bathroom came last week. I was really impressed considering that the website said to expect a 2-3 week wait, but they shipped within 2 days! We started installing them last week and finished up this morning. I’m really excited…

We placed our order for some new shades for the master bedroom last week. The ones that had been there were lace covered pleated shades that looked ok, but they were pretty dirty and a couple of them had broken strings, so we decided not to put them back up after the painter was done….
