As budget and energy allow, we have been upgrading our house that was built in 1975. If you read a few months back, you would know the previous owners were older and the wife really liked pink and frilly stuff. I actually like pink, but not in the more permanent places like counters and floors. Also, it appears that in an effort to make the house more sell-able, they got rid of all the frilly flowery window coverings leaving us with nothing in the windows. I now have curtains of some sort in all of the bedrooms and living room instead of sheets pinned to the walls. So this is just a bit of documentation by me to show you what we have been up to in updating our house and making it more our style.

When we first moved in there was no light fixture over the stairs.  Since the empty space with wires hanging down provided the only light in the front room other than sunlight, we found that it was kinda important to have a light there until we could find our lamps. ... See my Tabblo>

Great pictures! You guys are really doing some great stuff--it looks beautiful! And I am NOT laughing at the duvet covers as drapes because I have done similar things! Sometimes it's so hard to find the right thing, so you have to be creative. Love it.
