|The awful blinds|
Here is an after shot of what the room looks like now with the curtains up instead of the ugly shades.
I posted a picture of the fabric that I bought for $3.00 over the weekend, but here is a better view of it on one of the chairs. It is just folded up and sitting there but it will look a lot like that once I get them completely recovered.
You maybe can't tell but there are sheers hung at the entrance end of the sliders. I did this so that should we still want to block some of the heat of the day but have light we could easily do so. Those sheers actually block a good bit of light.
Here is a shot of the room with one side pulled more open and the sheer closed.
These are the ladder back chairs that I am going to paint white. My husband keeps trying to talk me into painting them dark brown but honestly I think they will look better white. Both in the room and with the fabric choices.
Here is a picture late in the evening with the curtains open. See my lovely yard? If you peak to the left of the picture you can also see where I intend to plant some herbs.
What do you think?
