Ok, I know its not really a catastrophe but I'm really annoyed. At myself.
You might remember my post earlier this year about my bare naked windows. I spent a lot of time thinking it over. A lot! I finally settled on a set of double rods with sheers and silk drapes over them as I mentioned in this post.
Well look what we finally got around to Sunday night.
Sorry for the crap photo - all style goes out the window when I'm pissed.
I usually pride myself on being able to visualize things well. Generally speaking, I'm fairly good at painting a picture in my mind. (Sure, I've had my fobbles before.) Well I screwed the pooch on this one royally because its a total mess.
For starters, I didn't factor the problems with putting the bigger double rod brackets on a bay window. Damn, geometry! That means the brackets are a little too close together to allow a seamless look of fabric. Oh well, I could live with that. But worse, there is just entirely too much fabric in a small space. I can barely move the curtains open enough and it creates a dungeon like light situation in there. It certainly provides privacy but its overkill x 10.
So as you can see, I put the brakes on the installation after finishing 2/3rds of the work. And I'm back to square one. No, that's not accurate - I'm at square negative ten because now I have holes in my woodwork that have to be patched & painted before I get back to square one. And still not a freaking clue what to do here. GAH!!
Thanks for listening to me rant. I'm going back to banging my head against the wall now.
