We have windows EVERYWHERE!
Our bedroom is good size but with a very pale paint, is stark and BRIGHT!
I count 15 expanses of naked glass that I need to cover/dress in the living/kitchen/dining area:
I've gotten started in the bedroom. Yes the blinds offer some privacy, but I want to see the water!!! (written in a true whiney tone) So we found some $5 sheers at Big Lots (a great place to start!) and the glare has softened some, but the windows still seem bare. I am searching. I spent over an hour on jcp.com yesterday and found some that weren't going to set me back $1000 by the time I bought enough. BUT BY THE TIME I CHECKED OUT, they were "out of stock" Grrrrrrr!
So the windows look the same as above. Notice the tape around the windows? I painted the bedroom on a snow day, a nice warm tan, I think the name is coffee or mocha or something that would smell good in the morning. I still haven't gotten the edges trimmed in, I'm not tall enough and the ladder we have doesn't go that high. Sigh
We moved in here using some of my mom's furniture. Some of it is her late husband's. This table can seat 8-10 with the leaves in! I've never had a dining area roomy enough for a table that expands that much before.
Shortly after we moved in I saw some great chairs someone had posted on GI. I snapped them up at overstock.com. I plan to make covers in white canvas for summer! They are nice and sturdy and comfortable. I love the whimsy of the upholstery.
And we bought a new bed, also at overstock.com. A real, grown up bed.
