Finally, I can look you in the eye! My previously nude windows…
…are finally appropriately dressed and presentable to the public!
No more do they run and hide when people see them. Now they walk with a little joy in their step, the way you do when you’re wearing a new outfit and you just know you look fab.
I’m always like, “Hey windows – lookin’ hot today. Love the new duds.”
And they’re all, “Oh, this old thing?” As they twirl and blush.
You might remember two months ago when I told you I ordered up some fancy-but-affordable custom blinds from Payless Decor. They arrived on my doorstep in no time, perfectly sized for my windows. I even got to choose which side of the window the cord goes on. I don’t know why that’s such a big deal to me. Just seems super cool.
Anyway, we brought the box inside and… didn’t install them. For two months. I am kicking myself that we waited so long because the installation took all of five minutes. You just screw the provided little brackety things right into the window.
Then you slide the blind right onto the screw…
Tighten the nut, and you’re done. That’s it. Seconds.
I still want to add some long curtains to these windows, but I can’t decide what I want to hang there. I’d love to do pattern but I don’t want it to compete with the plate wall. Because the plate wall will kick them in the KNEES! It would be no contest.
So maybe a solid? I’m kinda feelin’ navy, or maybe simple white with some kinda embellishment, but I’m dying to hear what you think.
In the meantime, I’m pretty crazy about our new shades. I love that I can hide the craziness in the backyard if needed, and I was pretty thrilled with how easy it was to order the blinds from Payless Decor, how quickly they arrived and the total cost for these custom beauties.
No more fig leaves, for you, little breakfast nook.
What do you think? Are you a fan of the bamboo look?
The blinds were provided to me by Payless Decor, but all opinions are mine of course! I trust ‘em 100 percent and have been so thrilled to work with them.
