OK. So this week's before/after photos are of some gold frames and my window treatment. For over 9yrs now I have collected numerous gold frames which I had hung up in two homes along a stairway wall. I loved looking for mirrors as I shopped and always made sure to keep them under $20. Well, after using them in three different homes it was time to put them away or so I thought. I decided that some of those would be great for my craft studio so out came the black matte spray paint. I think they turned out well, they did look prettier in gold but it was time for a change. See the very bottom of this post to learn how you can get your hands on some of my other gold frames that I am no longer using.
The other before and after photo I want to share is of my window treatment, the curtains are the ones I used prior to IKE only this time I am using rings and a longer curtain rod. I like the new look as it helps to make my window seem larger and it will be so much easier to pull the curtains closed in the evenings when I work at my desk. In case you are wondering why I bother to even close my curtains since I do have blinds well the night bugs love the light that shines through the blinds and so while I work I hear them flying into my window! It drives me nuts and so when I pull my curtains they stop. I plan on adding some type of bird feeder in front of my window so I can see the birds as I work.
