Updated: Just included photos of new window treatments below.
I have been VERY absent from my blog lately. But good news – WE MOVED INTO OUR HOUSE!!! After 2 1/2 years of deciding on location, house plan and then actually building, we are finally out of the rental house and into a house of our own again. I didn’t realize it until we moved, but living in temporary housing has really taken a toll psychologically on me. I lacked a lot of motivation in that house, whereas now in the new house I find myself waking up early, walking the dog, doing chores, cooking breakfast before work/school, etc…. – and happily doing it! I love being the new house and it’s a totally different atmosphere and impacts the family tremendously!
Although we are moved in, there is still a lot to do. “Work in progress,” is my term for it. I have found that window treatments are terribly expensive and have only ordered them for two rooms at this point – the family room and the master bedroom. Most of the other rooms have blinds installed, but these rooms have all arched windows and blinds were not the best option. Therefore, I am having window treatments made – but it is taking around 8 weeks to complete!
In the meantime, we don’t want to continuously “flash” the neighbors, so I created the “custom window treatments” pictured here. I taped up brown paper with blue painters tape. Its a look – maybe not a good one – but its a look. I am sure the neighborhood is questioning its new neighbors!
Regardless, the house – with its temporary, ugly window treatments, is my favorite today. It’s so good to have my soul settled for a change!!
