I decided to paint our front room bright white. I did love the grey color but my walls had been grey for almost 7 years now and I wanted a change. I finally saved enough and ordered the white belgian linen draperies from restoration hardware. I ordered one panel each month and then the next few months I ordered the drapery rods one at a time. Well, it paid off and finally I had everything I needed to give our front room a new look. As soon as the primer started going onto the walls I got nervous but I'm so glad I went for it. It is really pretty.
The windows in this room are hard to work with - the one behind the green chest was tricky because it is not centered on that wall. I wondered how to deal with it but decided on just ignoring the window and putting draperies along the whole wall to disguise the fact that it's off centered. It worked and it is so much more visually appealing to me now.
Jon's a good sport when i do all of these things to our home. I made him hang the curtain rods at 11:30 at night. He looked at me and said, "right now? are you serious?" I shook my head yes. He's a very good husband. I asked him how he liked it once it was all done and he said, "if you're happy, i'm happy."
Well, Jonnie - I'm very happy.
