Having paper blinds is one of my dirty little secrets. I have a very good reason for this home decor faux pas. When Peter and I purchased our condo I didn't plan on living here for more than two years. I saw it as something temporary and not my home. Here I am almost four years later, staring at my $5 paper blinds, and it still doesn't feel like home. I have paper blinds on almost every window. I must admit that I really have zero interest in decorating-but paper blinds. C'MON!
Now people are saying it will be 10 years before we can sell without taking a loss. WHAT? How am I supposed to live somewhere for ten more years that isn't my home. REPEAT I am not supposed to be here. This isn't where I am supposed to live. But the reality is that I am here at least for a good while. The second reality is that I definitely do not have the money to purchase treatments for all of our windows. And I can't sew a stitch so making curtains seems to be out of the question too. So it would seem I might be eligible for the Guinness books of World records for worst window treatments EVER!
Did I also forget to mention that Pete and I never painted our bedroom, or hung anything on the walls and we currently have as light bulb and not a light fixture hanging in the middle of our ceiling. It is really pathetic. We haven't painted the bedroom and now it is time to repaint most of the other rooms. Where did the time go?We always talk about making changes an improvements but we never seem to have the time or the $$$ especially since I am now a SAHM.
So now I need to figure out how to make this place feel like home for practically no money! Any suggestions?
Oh well...at least it seems I have about ten years to figure it out.
I would have taken a picture but it is not something I want to capture forever!
