Will I ever be finished showing you guys my living room??????
At least not for today......
I think I might actually have a whole 'nother week of things to share.....
Today I want to talk about the windows.
I HATE THEM!!!!!!!!!
They are big blank single panes of glass.
In the back of my condo,
(where no one can see them.....)
I have been able to fake the look of a divided light window
by pinning in removable wooden grills.
This is how they look in my family room.
Much, much, much, much, much better.......
I can't have them in the front of my condo,
they wouldn't match the rest of the condo units,
and that would be
At the present time, I have wooden venetian blinds on the windows.
They don't cover enough to make it look cottagey and cozy and quaint.
In Flerida, I solved this problem on my sliding glass doors by adding plantation shutters in my bedrooms.....
The doors went from this.....
So when I came back up to Massachusetts,
"Hey! Betsy! What are you? A DOPE!!!!!!
Let's do the same thing on the windows in the living room and study
up here in the north!!!!!!!!"
I called my good buddy Steve from Back Bay Shutter
to come right on over and measure me up some shutters!!!!
So in another 3 months (groan)
I will get them installed,
and then I will take more pictures to show you how great they look.
Unless they don't,
and then you'll never hear another word about it.
If it doesn't look great, I'll still share the humiliation with you guys.
I mean, it would be just our little secret!!
Nobody reads stuff on the internet anyway.....
