Did I mention I redid my fabric blinds? They were stripes in blues and green but I took the fabric off and used a light linen fabric in a off white. You can see a bit of them before here.
I love diy no sew fabric shades using those cheep plastic blinds, its very easy to do and I first saw the tutorial here at Little Green Notebook. The first ones I made were for our bedroom, then the bathroom and the kitchen.
I also bought curtain rings from Ikea for $3.99 in white to make it much easier to open the curtains.

Now I'm just doing a few things and awaiting on some sunlight to get pictures of the finished curtains. One is putting the trim back above the door.
