To make matters worse, over a year ago (or longer) I bought some cream colored shades at Ikea for the specific purpose of replacing the blinds. I brought them home and conveniently stuck them behind a chair and left them there, undisturbed until....MONDAY.
I finally took down the pink blinds and put up the new shades and I am so happy with the results.
It felt so good to take down the dusty, grimy pink blinds and put up these lighter shades. Gives the room such a bright feeling.
For reasons I can probably explain, I did not take a before picture. (Just too disgusting to share I think.)
