Going back through pictures, I forgot that I've never talked about these beauties.
You can see I was starting to take them down and remembered that I hadn't taken a picture yet.
Wow. What these do (or don't do) for the room.
For some reason we kept the plaid curtains. I found them folded up in guest room closet the other day. If anyone needs 4 plaid panels, I'd be more than happy to share.
We attempted to save the cornices. We cut the bottom, curvy line off to make it straight, but never used them. We still have those too, just in case you're wondering.
We've got a lot of stuff around here. Too much stuff. We're in need of a major garage sale.
We also need one of those days where you can take latex paint to be recycled. I've done some looking online and no recycling place around is doing anything for latex paint. They have tips on how to dry up paint and say that cans with said dry paint can be thrown in normal garbage. (They even suggest using the paint up, even rolling on coat after coat to use it all. Ha!) We have too much paint and a lot of the cans are super full, so drying it out would take forever.
Sidebar: In an attempt to stack the paint cans neatly I came across one that had "Garden Room" written on it. I had to open it and it was a sunny yellow color. Part of me is sad that I didn't get to ever see the Garden Room. Nothing was that color when we moved in, so I guess it was painted over. With seeing how over the top the previous owners decorated, I have to believe that the Garden Room had one of those white picket fence pieces nailed to the walls and fake ivy wound around it.
One day I'll share pictures of the Muppet-esque chandelier shade covers.
