Here is the living room with French doors and bamboo shades. My plan is to install a traverse rod just below the molding. The draperies will have pinch pleats at the top and they will open in the center. Most of the time, the draperies will hang all the way open on each side of the door /windows, leaving them completely free for normal use.
All of the solid swatches came from Michael's Fabrics, where they are currently having a blowout sale. Can you believe how perfect all of these colors are?? Seriously, each one would work beautifully. They have been thumb-tacked in the living room and each one looks nice.
Look at that!! When did these cats do that damage? I guess they jump up there as soon as we leave the house and go wild.
OK, it is SATURDAY, one of the better days in the week, IMHO. The kids are coming over to eat fish caught by DH. Oh yeah, he da man.... he da fishing man! (The tall handsome one is my DH)
