The Western side of the house gets really hot in the afternoon, and while I have been using an outdoor roll down blind, it is rather inefficient, not to mention majorly ugly. Therefore I am putting up a curtain on this window. It has become a 'wall' in my recent rearrangement, and covering it in white drapes will reinforce it's wall-ness. I went to town to return the unused styrofoam panels and combined that with shopping for curtain rod, rings and 5 yards of white cotton canvas (O and one piece of red red red cotton) I am now ready to make the drapes today. I really just wanted to buy curtains, but they were all so flimsy or so expensive or just not white at all. I feel bad for people who don't sew and are stuck with what is offered.
Hobby Lobby which is right next door to Lowe's, my initial stop, had the 60" wide canvas, and Lowe's had just the right curtain rod. I am hoping I can get away with not using the center support...we'll have to see. I like shower curtain rings to hang my curtains, which will have buttonholes at the top. Simple and fast and inexpensive.
While I was out I got new doorstops to replace the puppy chewed one.
Speaking of puppies...
