This is the "before picture - this long pipe / curtain rod went all the way across the room (this came with the house).
And after with the simple curtain rods ($6.99 each from IKEA) and the drop cloth drapes. I just used one on each side.
and the other window in the room with matching curtain rod.
and I got a new feather pillow insert for my favorite pillow cover
Sometimes a couple of little changes can just freshen up and simplify a room. I am all for simple and organized for the new year.
Back to the classroom on Tuesday, so blog posts may be few and far between for a while! Me and the kids have enjoyed our time off. They are looking forward to going back to school, and that is definitely a first for my 6 year old (I think he had a tummy ache every day of pre-school and Kindergarten), 1st grade is turning out to a be a great year for him and his confidence.
2009 was a good year for us in many ways - we moved to our new house, we had a trip to Disneyland to me and the kids got to see my family and visit for a month. We had some down times too, so we are looking forward to a lot more positive things in 2010.
Happy New Year!
