In case you hadn't noticed by now I am very non-committal (is that even a word?). It takes me f-o-r-e-v-e-r to make a decision on anything house-related because I'm always afraid that I will regret my decision or have to live with something I don't like forever and ever. It's a horrible way to be. Alex doesn't think so. He likes it when I can't decide because it means I don't spend any money. Boys, huh?
I know I've
annoyingly mentioned my LOVE for the following Pottery Barn tie-up shades:
I love them. Love, love, love them. Love them so much it hurts. I attempted to make my own knock-off tie-up shade here. It turned out really well, but it wasn't/isn't the real thing. I had to use white canvas instead of white cotton/linen and it just doesn't look as light and breezy. Did you know that Pottery Barn even discontinued these window treatments for awhile? Yup. But now they're back. AND I'M GETTING THEM. Sorry about the capitals. I was shouting it, though.
How am I getting them you ask, when poopy Pottery Barn doesn't ship to Canada? Enter the awesome in-laws who are leaving for Florida in 2 weeks and who gave me their American credit card number. Jackpot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'll have the goods shipped to their place and then they are going to ship them up here to me. Soooooo excited!!!
You'll understand my excitement once you see a picture of the sunroom where they are going. When we moved in we had to choose window treatments right away that were ultra-private. The five sunroom windows let anyone on the street see right through our whole main floor: sunroom, living room, dining room, and kitchen. A snoopy neighbour once offered to give us all of the furniture in her basement since our house was "empty." Um, can you please not peek in my house?!? The only suitable thing we could find were 2" faux wood blinds (white) that had to be custom ordered. They were pretty expensive and so Alex
wouldn't let me get didn't think we should get anything else.
The windows / blinds are in desperate need of some fabric to soften them up. I've finally convinced Alex that these tie-up shades are the answer and I absolutely can't wait to get them.
I've also decided to order the following rug for under our teeny table in our breakfast room. I'll have to wait until the spring when Alex's parents get back to have it, though. It'd cost too much to get that bulky item shipped to them and then to me. Still exciting, though.
It's kind of fun once you finally make a decision! Have you made any tough decorating decisions lately?
