A while ago I posted about a 'disagreement' my hubby and I were having about the windows in our bedroom. He kept insisting it was too light in the morning, and I kept insisting it was fine: we needed to be getting up anyway. In the end he nailed drop cloths across the windows, and we've been using them for drapes ever since.
Kind of like a rough draft. It obviously solved the problem in a temporary fashion, but still needs work to make it shine.
Last weekend we finally put up some real drapes. Insulated (keeps the cold out in winter, the heat out in summer), light blocking, and they even match the rest of the decor. It's a beautiful thing. (Okay. Okay...I haven't ironed them yet...I'm kind of hoping the creases will just hang themselves out.)
Kind of like putting the finishing touches on a manuscript. When you've gone all through, written your story, then the tiny details that really make it come to life can be added. (And in a story, I definitely would iron out all those loose ends!)
All in all, leaving you with a very satisfied feeling.
Until next time,
