I am going out of my $%#$!!! mind. I even submitted it on one of my favorite design bloggers and she featured it on her Q&A design post. I enjoy Kristi at Addicted 2 Decorating very much . She's an amazing DIY'er AND a phenomenal designer. Anyhow- I have been trying to follow through with her suggestions (read about that here) but keep hitting a few snags. What she suggested is pretty much what I knew I wanted to achieve but didn't know how to go about it. I actually found the hardware I needed- including a flexible corner piece to allow the layout she suggested. I still need brackets, but that's the easy part.
Since then- I have ordered curtains, they arrived and the #$%! pattern is too busy. Yes- I looked at them in person, I fell in love with the colors and pattern. Gorgeous neutral background with a blue floral and green accents, geez that does sound gawdy, but it's not. Anyhow, I had to special order the length for my stupid arse 9ft ceilings. OH how it makes the room feel bigger...UNTIL you try to dress the windows and Geez do I feel like a blithering idiot.
So now I have to deal with returning all these @#$%@%# curtain panels. I'm almost back to square one- I won't say I'm all the way back there as I do have the hardware. Oh and dare I say I found a rug for under my dining room table that was inspired by said curtains? I still love the rug. I'm thinking now it was too matchy matchy and I should keep the rug and well, the curtains are already going back, but use the rug and go from there.
Seriously- this is what is gives me anxiety when there are seriously more pressing matters in the world today- random airplanes missing, hostile cats taking people hostage in their own home, KMarts are closing and the latest? Radio Shack is in the pooper! Where will my mother get a battery for her police scanner? But more excitingly? McDonald's is thinking of making their breakfast menu all day (no comment on that last one). Makes me feel like a real medal winner in humanity. My rational muse is screaming (wait is that an oxymoron?) "You're complaining about WHAT?!" Yes indeed, but I am just that ridiculous.
Oh and no way in Hades will I ever consider making/sewing drapes of this proportion. My sewing skills are mediocre at best and that would send me over the edge. I do not wish to wrangle THAT much fabric.
Then I tell myself I should get a hobby... which is usually followed by a fit of maniacal laughter.
Yeah, those 2x4's are looking pretty darn snazzy right about now. Now if only I could find something more than a rubber mallet.
