So....what do I do in the mean time when I stay at home and have no kids? Well, I go a little crazy when it rains for what seems like forever, watch a lot of Psych, look at the internet (pinterest) a little too much, and plan how to redecorate my house. I decided that curtains in my living room was a good place to start. I have not had curtains in the living room ever. We built the house about 12 years ago so I think it is about time.
I saw this picture on Pinterest of curtains with a shelf over them and I really liked it. I thought, "Hey, I can do that!" I didn't follow the link all the way and read the original post or even know if there is one, sometimes those links don't go anywhere, but I did my own version from the picture I saw.
Christmas came and Santa brought some extra money! So, off my mom and I went curtain shopping! It was a good trip and we got everything I needed for my project. Now for the work...
I had to paint the pieces I was going to use for the shelf mount and it would also hold the curtain rod.
