Blinds!

This is my bedroom window... notice the new blinds are already closed. i couldn't wait to get back into bed for nap. it's SO nice to finally NOT have 5.5 feet x 6 feet of sunlight... well, maybe not sunlight today... it was pretty dreary.

You may notice the green... i finally settled on a color, in like 4 seconds at home depot last night b/c i worked late and that was all the time i had to spare before they closed... but i had to get the wall around the blinds painted before the guy came today or i was going to risk getting paint on my new blinds... so that's the green. i'm going to do the wall opposite this one even darker. it's a little scary to go for such strong colors, but i think i like it.




And here's the living room window... you can see the giant expanse... it's almost 19 feet long, and 6 feet tall. I've decided to paint the screen door frame (right side of photo) to match the wall. it's kind of a crappy door, though i'm happy to have it b/c of my bug phobia. i couldn't believe, when the man took down those nasty sheers (see photos here), how much light they actually filtered out. turns out i really need to dust. almost asked to put them back up, i hate to dust. where's maria when i need her? i wonder how much she'd charge to JUST come and dust. i'll do everything else...
