Majority rules….

Ok.  I think the opinions (votes) are probably all in.

Majority is definitely saying “YES, DO IT  !!!!”

So, I (actually my husband) did.

I ran the idea past him on Easter afternoon.  His only request was “We can do it, but not immediately, like TODAY?!!!”

An hour later:

He IS a good man!!!  Trust me, he is a typical man, and does not generally do things quite THIS fast for me !!!  took a little bribery, begging and pleading on my part, but hey, you gotta do what ya gotta do!!!!

So, I am thinking I love love LOVE it!!!!  I love it alot from the inside.  It is so inviting, and almost cabana-like.  I am still trying to get used to the “look” from the outside.  It looks really different.  I definitely love the intimate and semi-private feel.  It actually looks a little brighter even since, there is now so much white.

Now, will I love it forever??  probably not.  I may not even put them up next year.  Who knows??  I love change.  It is what keeps things FRESH and the feel of a room interesting.  Remember how well I love to change furniture around??   So, I will love it, then be ready for openness again, and switch back and forth.  I am entitled to that.  :)    (I have to remind many people of that often).    and who knows, with the rods already being up, I could even get really crazy and take the sheers down, and add grapevine, or festive lights wound around them….oh, the possibilities are endless!!!

I did already have the rods in the basement from previous attempts at curtains and valances…and the sheers were only $5 each.  An inexpensive way to dress up a room in my opinion.

Here is the finished “look”.

with all the sheers pulled shut...

...or pulled open!!!

ok.  Be honest.  Do you like?   I can take ALL opinions, either way.  I really can.

and I only wish I could invite ALL of you over to check it out yourself!!!  instead of an old fashioned “Block Party”  we could have a “Blog Party” !!!!  LOL

……your opinions really WERE the deciding factor.  I know where to go next time I find myself in another indecisive mode!!!!

My blog readers are THE BEST !!!!!

    WoW!!!
    Looks Great. VERY warm and inviting. I am ready to come back to Osky just to sit on your porch. I use to live down the road from your place, when I was in Junior High.
    Are your sheers able to be tea/coffee dyed? This is a very inexpensive way to change the color of items.

      I will be sure to invite you when I have my “blog party” LOL. Wouldn’t that be fun??? I am not sure if they could be dyed, because of the synthetic sort of fabric. They are really “slick” ish. (?) but that is a good idea, especially if they get a little discolored on their own.

    REally, really like it – Of course, I like it – it’s WHITE!! I like it best with the sheers closed — It is very inviting! And you COULD invite us over – we would each bring a snack – all you would need to furnish is the porch and the punch. You could have a Porch and Punch Party kinda like my Casserole and Cards Party!! Let me know when!

    • simplyaltered Says:

      I totally figured you would like the whitish and toulle look of it, as well as the initmacy it provides. It is WONDERFUL out there, all alone!!!!! you can imagine huh???
      I will let you know when the party is. 🙂

  12. Pam T Says:

  13. simplyaltered Says:

    Kelli,
    I think both look nice. Closed for the private feel and open for county look.
