I've been wanting to paint my living room/dining room area for awhile now. My taste has evolved a lot since I painted it yellow almost 5 years ago and the bright yellow just wasn't doing it for me any longer. I wanted a more subdued, softer look.
I ended up taking down my vertical blinds on my sliding glass door and raising the drapery rod higher. My next project is to make some drapery panels. I had planned to do this while I was off work for a few days but I ended up catching a cold and Lauren had the stomach flu so that slowed me down quite a bit. Hopefully I'll be able to get to that project soon. My draperies now are hanging about a foot off the floor and it's driving me crazy!!!
