motiva[tion]

To move! Thanks to the help of my mom & Gene, we were able to get everything out of our apartment this weekend! It felt good to get everything into the house, now we just need to get everything into it's proper place in the house! We're off to a good start though. The kitchen, the dining room, the bathroom, and the guest room are all pretty much done, with the exception of contents in some of the boxes in Bedroom #2 that may need to go in these various rooms. Here's what it's looking like so far...





The biggest dilemma of the weekend has been window treatments! We really wanted the wooden woven Roman shades, and they actually do look great (the one that I have hanging, as seen above). However, you can see straight through it! Yikes. So now, I think we will hang the 4 that I've ordered (from Overstock) in the Dining Room and Bedroom #2. And for the front of the house (Guest Bedroom & Living Room), I've ordered these from JCPenney:


Yes, I realize that you can probably see through these, but at least you can only make out shadows? We'll see. The problem is that I did not want the white lining, I really wanted to see the color from the street, so that was a limiting factor in the Roman shade selection! I'll let you know how it turns out in 4-7 business days. Until then, we'll have sheets on the windows! Although, you'll notice above, my mom installed white 2" faux wooden blinds in the bathroom, and MM is coming to install the kitchen shade that she made soon! Can't wait to see it!
