On a brighter note, I finished the re-do on my no-sew kitchen window treatments last night. I would have taken a picture of the finished product, but I just didn't have the energy to do the last of the dishes before I collapsed in a sniffling, coughing, snoring (that's yet to be proven) heap. Don't judge me. I know you're so excited, so here's a teaser....
Sad, I know... (Looks like I need to clean the water splashes off the window too. Sigh.) Remember, it was just the window treatments that I redid at this time. We'll soon be replacing the butt-ugly lighting with pendant lighting (I hope). More than likely the builder's grade oak cabinetry will get a make over as well. Of course, painting the cabinetry is a major undertaking, and I've sworn that there will be no other major projects started until some of the others are finished. Right now, the projects that are taking place are ones that I can do by myself or with very minimal involvement from others (read: the significant other). LOL!
We bought an older home (circa 1950s), and are upgrading and adding on as we can. Unfortunately, much of what the previous owner(s) did do was not executed very well and was done with mid- to low-grade materials. So, we have some challenges.
Stay tuned. Pictures of the completed window treatment re-do will come soon.
So, for now.... Happy hump day, ya'll!
