I have a confession..

We are a messy family! I don’t want to be, who does, but we just are. I don’t know if it is possible to be tidy with 2 toddlers, but lets just say it’s not for my sake! My goal for 2013 was to try to be cleaner/more organized. So this was a simple and inexpensive fix, that I am kicking myself for not doing something sooner.

I feel like the “After” pic more than makes up for the first picture of me exposing my mess. I only spent about $15 for the little makeover.

Then, I went to town painting. What a difference this makes. Seeing a mess there everyday just put me in a bad mood. Now this is the first thing I see in the morning and every time I walk up the steps, and I love it! And if you come in through the front door and look up the stairs, you can see the great new window treatment. Who doesn’t love a great Roman Shade? Or is it a Roman Shade? Come back in a few days to see my easy no-sew shade!

Thanks for stopping by,
