We finally got our new shades over the weekend. Chad worked hard to get some of the walls primed before the installation. You can tell the difference between the primed area of the wall and not primed in the upper right corner. This is the first time these walls have seen paint in about 80 years. Amazing, uh? And the walls are beautiful. All of Chad's hard work patching the holes from the insulation is really paying off. You can also see evidence of Chad's house re-wiring project. (yes - right now Chad's pretty much the only that works on this house - my excuse is school. hmmmm....I'll have to find a new excuse after I graduate).
Anyway, the shades are great!! Couldn't be happier. Love them - they are exactly what we had in mind when we first started talking about blinds.
I'm happy because now I feel some actual progress.
