I am flat out embarrassed but our bedroom curtains are finally up. It might have taken 1.5 years but by golly, it’s better late than never!
I have my excuses and I’m sticking to them:
2. This means I can’t reach the tops of my windows.
3. Before you ask, no we don’t have a ladder.
4. I didn’t want to be that wife and nag my husband about curtains.
5. Clearly, I have a reputation to uphold. Or a marriage to keep.
My awesome Red Beard did a fantastic job and I spared him the humiliation of snapping pictures as he positioned the nails and sturdied the rod. He was glad.
We scored an orb finish cafe rod at Tarjay for $13.99. The curtain panels were already owned (my mom lovingly made them for my first big girl apartment a few years ago) as were the curtain rings.

And since it took 17 months to hang these babies, below are pictures ad naseaum of this epic and momentuous moment.
p.s. You’re welcome to click away now. I won’t be offended.
p.p.s. That I’ve posted this occurence is just further proof for down the road when I need Red Beard to do something else for me and I have to remind him how long it better not take him. Kidding. Sort of.
Now, I’m off to enjoy an afternoon nap in the bedroom with my newly hung curtains.
