This is the before --the drapes are really green but they've faded to a gold!!!
And the window seat -- filled with pillows -- so many that there isn't much room to sit and enjoy the window seat!
And today, the Sunday before Christmas -- was spent on a ladder, taking down all of the "holders" (for mini blinds, blinds, drapes, and roller shades) and then putting up the two inch Venetian blinds that we bought for the room.
And then I moved things and cleaned really really well! For Daughter Sarah and her Andy are coming home for Christmas!
The after . . . . less pillows on the bed, less curtains at the window . . . a cleaner look (and an easier to clean look!)
The light in the room is amazing with the four windows covered only in blinds which are open -- sunlight steams in so it is a "light and happy" room rather than a "dark and dreary" room.
The window seat is cleared of almost all of the pillows -- except for the one long one -- it's much easier to find a place to sit! (But, of course, who has time to sit?)
I am happy with the small changes -- putting the pillows away and taking down the heavy window coverings. I hope Daughter Sarah and her Andy will like the changes as well!
It's Monday and so it's time for Met Monday with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. With Christmas activities taking up so much time, I was surprised that I had time for a metamorphosis this week. Let's see what else everyone has been up to!
