Project 19: Window treatments are done!

May 20, 2011

Roman shades half

Huzzah! Can you believe the roman shades are done and hung up? I kind of can’t. I felt a bit like Dr. Frankenstein a few minutes ago standing on my bed with the power drill. When they were up I just kept raising and lowering them with a foolish grin on my face. They work! They’re done! And I made them! I can barely believe it.

Lessons learned:
– Baby naps are a perfectly reasonable time to get things done, even things involving power tools.

That’s all I’ve got for now. It’s too close. Many thanks to Dara of Li Sashay for the help with the shades, and to my husband for digging tools out of the utility room at 1:45am. I couldn’t have done it without either of you.

Next up: finishing the lights.

Here are two more pictures just because I’m giddy about it:

  1. Wa-hoooo! Congrqtulations, and I have to say that they are a fantastic way to blend in the wainscotting with the whole look. This was the perfect type of window treatment for this room and really gives it a tailored look. I love it!

    Good work, good persistence, and I don’t even want to know what time you guys got to bed!
