We have another Tuesday Tidbits this week that is full of progress! If you follow along on FB or Instagram, you know that we were able to get a few more window treatments up in the kitchen. There are 4 (rather large) kitchen windows and they all have these same roman shades. They only go up to the halfway point, because halfway is 7 feet up (plenty of privacy). They are see-through in both day and night, but still give just enough cover for the kitchen to not feel like a fishbowl. I honestly was not certain that we should put anything up…it’s the kitchen and dining area, not the master bathroom. However, this seemed to be the perfect fix.
In the daytime you can see quite easily out of them and the kitchen remains very light.
Area rugs have started arriving and this particular one arrived 18 months ago (it was on sale)! So, this is my “trick” to try and get it flat. Trent thinks I’m a little crazy.
I’ve been shopping for towels and rugs for our master bathroom and it is proving to be more difficult than I expected. Do you have a set of towels that you love? Do they hold up well? Can you wash them over and over while keeping them nice looking? Please share if you do!
Almost all of the main floor (original) doors have new doorknobs on them. We have many, many holes to fill and then touch-up with more paint, but it’s nice to have doorknobs.
Only because it is almost impossible to tell in the photos, keep in mind the baseboard is 1 foot tall, the trim around the door is over 9 inches wide and the doors are 9 feet tall. We basically look like toddlers playing house. And everything we own looks small. Really, really small.
And just in case you are not from our little part of the world, this is what our weekend looked like. Most years, we do get hit with a pretty good snowstorm…and this one did not disappoint. I took this shot when driving between Niles and Buchanan, Michigan. It was a GORGEOUS weekend with a lot of snow!
Thank you for following and have a wonderful week!
