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”.
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 !!!!!
