Some shopping

Some of the bonus money is going to go towards things I still need to finish the inside of the house and the blinds dh still needs for the shop windows. When we were living in the shop I did buy faux wood blinds for the bathroom window only. The rest of the windows he just hung dark brown towels over and those are still there. The blinds (Bali) are 40% off right now at blinds.com, so this is the best time to order them. I need 7. 

I also need 2 more roman shades for 2 of the living room windows. I put 2 in the dining room last year, but we have 2 windows that face the side (where our living room "bows" out, there are 2 windows that face the side, not out back towards the river, if that makes sense).

And I really need some type of window treatment upstairs in the 2 bedrooms and my office. Really the only reason I haven't ordered anything all this time is I can't decide what I want! Curtains block part of the views as well as cover up the nice knotty alder window casings/wrapped windows. I guess I want something that can be "up" and not block any views, yet be available to pull down when needed. Then I couldn't decide whether to go cellular shades, roman shades, roller shades?

I think I am going to do woven wood shades, but I still haven't pulled the trigger yet on the order. BUT, the more I think about it - those woven wood shades look best when part of them are down, letting the light shine through them. The more I think about it the more I think I won't want them pulled down a bit, because it will partly block seeing the mountains view out the windows. I think I'm just going to go with the cellular shades. In the up position you barely know they are there, but are there to pull down when needed. We have one of these in the long vertical window above our bed. UGH. I can't decide.

The loveseat I want (and had ordered several fabric samples of awhile back) today now shows a 6-8 week delivery time. When I was looking online last night it was 16-18 weeks! I can deal with 6-8 weeks. 

Oh good grief. I'm placing the order for the loveseat. The one I already have like 8 fabric samples of. There is like 104 colors to choose from in total. Now I have to choose what fabric I want the throw pillows in! I can't do any more decisions, LOL.

  1. I like windows covered, but in your case, I would like something I could still block the window from view. So, it sounds like you have chosen the right treatment. You do have a lot of decisions to make at once...lol.

    1. That's what I am thinking, too. I still haven't ordered yet, haha. The cellular shade in our bedroom is hardly noticeable, so much that when I mentioned it yesterday dh had forgotten it was even there, LOL.
