Day 317's weekend progress
Our curtains are finally here! And finally on the windows! As you may recall, my mom gave them to me for my birthday (in FEBRUARY) and promised to hem them. She eventually handed them off and they were finished last week. Wes and I hung them Saturday night just in time for his parents to come on Sunday for Mother's Day.
I must say that the curtains make the room look so "finished," even in the unfinished state that it is (did you see the chairs?!). Here are some shots of the rest of the room:
The sofa sits across from the windows. We've got some architectural prints we'd like to hang here, but I haven't come up with a reasonably-priced framing situation for them.
And here's our lovely television hutch from, of all places, Wal-Mart. What can we say? We spent the big bucks on the 42-inch plasma-screen Panasonic Viera! I actually kind of like the shape of it, but realize that the finish is kind of awful. We bought with the intention of painting it or something, but haven't got around to it (partly because I can't decide what to do to it, surprised?).
Eventually we'll want to paint the walls, but I'm currently at a loss about the color. Dove gray, maybe? Suggestions are welcome!
