When people come to my house for the first time, if I catch them trying to glance toward the breakfast nook, I start waving my hands wildly and loudly talk-yelling to redirect their attention.
Sometimes gymnastics are involved.
We’ve lived in this house for four and a half years, and still these windows are au naturel. Naked as the day they were born.
It’s extra shameful if you recall the state of my backyard, which you see through those windows. From one of those chairs, you can probably see four primary-colored plastic toys, one large wooden playground, three possibly-not-working powerwheels vehicles and an ugly plastic playhouse.
We need window coverings. STAT.
I bought a few cheapo bamboo blinds a while back and once we finally got around to installing them, I had one of those you-get-what-you-pay-for moments. They were not cute and only minimally functional. Back to the store they went, and I hopped online and started digging around.
And that’s how I landed on Payless Decor. I’m thrilled to be partnering with them now and bringing them on as a sponsor, and after ordering my own blinds from them, I couldn’t be happier about their variety and prices. It was actually super fun to order them too, because they have a buncha colors to choose from and you get to completely customize ‘em, even down to which side of the window the cord goes on. I may have geeked out over getting to make all those fun decisions.
I ordered their premium blinds which are their most affordable version, but still custom and beautiful.
I got the java vintage color, which I’m hoping will tie in the color of the floors and my wicker barstools:
This is the same blind that Rhoda at Southern Hospitality has in her beautiful kitchen. Now those are some good-lookin’ duds, am I right?
We don’t buy a lot of custom stuff around here, you may have surmised, but I definitely learned my lesson after I snatched up that cheapo blind that didn’t even do the job. And I was really surprised how affordable the custom option can be through Payless Decor, since they don’t have a storefront and they can keep their prices lower.
My order has been placed and I await delivery. Can’t wait to show them to you installed!
I’m eagerly waiting, because my windows are giving a full frontal, and there are children in this house.
