One thing I am slowly learning is that when you spend all of your time cooped up in your home, you are constantly surrounded by all of those home decor to-do items. I have so many new ideas to do with the house, my mind is spinning! Sorry Jeff.....
My biggest pet peeve lately is that we do not have a window treatment for our kitchen window. I have been thinking that a bamboo shade would look good in this space, however, my sister recently bought these cute valances from Target for her home and I really am liking them too! I love both options!!!!
The bamboo shade would add a nice contrast to our dark cherry cabinets and give us full privacy for that window. It also goes well with our bar stools. The valance will add some color to the space and matches well with our granite counter tops. The grommets also match the grommets on our kitchen slider. There are also panels that go with the valance. I could change out the slider drapes to match this valance and use the slider drapes in the great room instead. Oh, the decisions.... Which option do you think would look best, the valance or the bamboo shade?
The Target Valance:
The bamboo shade from Overstock.com:
Another thing to consider is that the valance has matching panels. I could buy the panels and move these brown panels to the naked great room windows that you can see to the left of the slider. Oh, the decisions!!!!
How our kitchen slider looks now:
The panels that match the valance:
Happy Ash Wednesday everyone, what are you all giving up for lent? I have decided to give up chocolate. This one is going to be tough, but I am determined to stick with it!!!! I am also thrilled to see that the McDonald's singing fish commercial has returned for yet another Lenten season. I have a feeling that catchy tune will be going through my head for the next 40 days.......
