Quick Fix.

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Hi there! First, thank you all so much for your well wishes on our third anniversary yesterday! It is truly crazy how fast time flies.

A few days ago, I shared how we lined the binds for privacy in our guest bedroom and nursery. Yes, they work great, yes it was cheap to accomplish, BUT there was one problem with our "After".





Our new "blackout" blinds weren't exactly the prettiest things to look at from the outside. Whoops :). (Don't mind the sprinkler--just keeping it real!)

My OCD self had to figure out a solution...SO I headed to the fabric store, bought some clearance outdoor fabric (ticking stripe baby!), and did a little hemming....




A little ironing....




And then staple-gunned my blind-covering concoction right on to the top of blinds...





Side Note: Don't you just hate when you finish a project and in all of your "I'm Finished!" happiness are bummed to realize that you need to take it down and fix something? That is the downfall of all DIY projects in my opinion.

...And re-hung the new and even more improved project for the outside world to see.






Ahhhhh, so much better. My OCD-ness can calm it's little self down now. ;)


Are there any projects that you have had to re-do to make them more functional for your lifestyle and space?

We are headed to the airport to pick up my sweet mother-in-law for a weekend of fun and baby-kissin'! Have a great day.
