Here is my long-overdue window repair post. Goodbye, peeling yucky teal paint!
Here is a little detailed before shot. Nice painting job right? I had to scrape the old paint off the glass before I could even start. I got new hardware too.
Then we had to tackle window coverings which was a tall order. We wanted something room darkening, dark in color but white on the backside, thermal, oh and cheap too. I originally ordered roman shades on sale at Penney's (JCPenney to you non-Ohioans) and got white curtains in-store to go in front.
Then a happy accident, we went to target late one night and found really nice, chocolate brown thermal, white backed shades for 75% off! We got these for $8.75 each!
I took $110 of curtains back to JCP, but left the order in for the white roman shades because we decided to use them in the living room downstairs. Too bad they are on backorder until November 23rd!
Here are the pics:
The color scheme is not quite pulled together yet, but the green bedspread has a chocolate brown thread pattern.
Anyone know how hard it would be to stain the crib and chaining table darker?
In other progress, I ordered a really cool ceiling fan last night. It is the Minka Aire Concept I. Lists for $330, normally sells for $270, but I got it on clearance at LightingUniverse.com for $173! Minka fans are supposed tobe really great quality, and I have to admit, I really struggled with finding an affordable, quality modern ceiling fan. Especially hard was finding one where the light didn't hang down 10 more inches!
We will only have it on the shortest drop rod (3"), but it should still look great.
Now all I need is a rug!
