SSU Master Bedroom: New Window Blinds
See these boxes? These four boxes, one opened, three not, have been sitting on our bedroom floor for almost two years. Yep. That is how long I've been meaning to paint the trim and hang new blinds.
My mind can change quite a bit in two years so I'm not sure I would have chosen these blinds if I were buying them today, but I wasn't about to let them go to waste. When I was choosing new colors and fabrics for the room, these cream blinds had to be taken into consideration.
The good news is that after hanging them, I really like them a lot more than I thought I was going to. I like that they match the walls and not the trim. It breaks it up a bit. Anything is better than the dark wood blinds that were there before. Even when closed, the room still feels lighter than it was.
Shortening them wasn't my favorite job in the world, but it is nice to have some privacy again and so great to finally get those four dust-collecting boxes off our bedroom floor.
Now I have to tackle this bad boy to make the new curtains. I thought I'd give you a sneak peek at the fabric.
