Home improvements! Roman shades for living room

Today, Eric and I (finally) installed some Roman shades that I’d made for the living room and dining room.  I don’t know what it is about that last step…the shades have been ready for about 2 months. Eric has been ready and willing to assist with the installation. It’s just me.  I am especially bad like that when it comes to laundry. Washing, drying, folding…no problem. But heaven help me if I have to actually put the clothes in the dresser or the closet. Just doesn’t make sense.  Most of the time, we just live out of the laundry baskets and skip that last step ;)

The living room, dining room and kitchen are all kind of one big open space. Here is the actual living room, with new shades:

Here, part of the dining room adjacent to the living room – Trix lying in her usual spot:

And  this small area is kind of no man’s land, leading to the stairs – Holly napping in her favorite chair. See the red column which is part of the kitchen:

Now you’ve had a tour of most of the downstairs. Next up on the hit parade, making a curtain or shade for the big picture window in the dining, which is to the left of the dining room table and not visible in the photos.
