All Dressed Up

On to project #2! This has been a little bit of a challenging project (Not to mention the purchasing of 9 curtain rods, and about 17 trips to 3 different stores.) But who doesn't love a little bit of a challenge?

I have a confession.....for the last 2 years I've had naked windows. I've really been trying to prioritize my projects. What needs to be done, and what is just something I want to be done - 2 very different things! Well the naked windows/curtain situation jumped to the top of the list when I peeled back the rug underneath our dining table and saw a yellow square (where the rug sits) staring back at me. Yes, it was time and no, I do not clean under my rug often.

I'll post an overall picture as soon as I haul out all of the empty boxes, and mistake rod boxes!
