I thought the answer was curtains.
If only I could visualize things before I execute them...
For example, I thought these Ikea curtains would look cute in the kitchen. Epic fail. They looked like sheets. And the pattern was a bit much. And the curtains were white and the rug was cream. And Nate hung them too low....and they kept getting stuck in the door. And... :P
After learning a little bit more about hanging curtains, I decided on these curtains from Target. And I made Nate rehang the curtain rods. It's amazing we are still married....I wasn't so sure after this adventure.
We were super annoyed when the curtains kept getting caught in the door (we use the deck A LOT in the summer). We didn't need the curtains for privacy...just looks....so we did away with the one getting stuck in the door...which left that area feeling like it was missing something.
We decided on an iron piece from Hobby Lobby to add a little interest.
Too much? Other suggestions??
