So it’s been 1 week since we closed on the house and we have been busy! Yesterday I shared with you about our bathroom shade experience, and now I’m gonna take you on a tour of how the rest of the house got some much-needed security. We had a total of 8 windows to cover in the living room, den, and bedrooms. After researching what type we wanted we decided to go with some simple white vinyls. My first choice were some great looking white compressed wood blinds, but with Christmas being 2 weeks away and just closing on the house we decided we could “upgrade” down the road and go with something more thrifty, some simple light filtering vinyls. Now if we had a pet or kids I wouldn’t go the vinyl route, but since it’s just the two of us we don’t have to worry about anyone snapping or damaging them. Plenty of time to upgrade later :)
After taking multiple measurements we made our first ‘Home Update’ purchase and got ourselves some much needed window-hugging blinds.
So with that said I’m gonna show you how it all went down.
Step 1: Buy yourself some blinds!
Next: Mark your spot – nothings worst than an unexpected Re-Do !
Then: Take TONS of pictures…
This is what happens when I get too camera snappy. hehe
Don’t Forget to catch those moments they aren’t expecting
Then: Use those suckers! When it’s dark outside you’re offering a free show
Most Importantly: Don’t forget to let the wife install the last one so she can get a super savy picture of her hard work ;)
Well there ya have it. A personalized blind installation, straight from the Ringl House! Now, it’s time to get back to watching ‘Christmas Vacation’. Stephen told me to watch something other than ‘Elf’, which I don’t understand one bit… but I’ll comply like a good wife anyway ;)
