I just had to paint one last thing black before the end of 2011! The new ladder sure made reaching the curtain rod easier. I made the curtains about 12 years ago! The wooden rod was just natural wood. I had always meant to stain it, but I just never got around to it. Well, 12 years later it is finally complete, just not as I originally planned!
While I had the curtains down, I also "dry cleaned" them in my dryer. I'm thrilled with the "new" look. It is also nice to have all the cobwebs cleaned off !
On a less exciting note, I started having severe side pain when we were eating out last night. We cancelled our plans to go to Cherry Berry for dessert and came home instead. The pain is the same as the pain I had 15 years ago when I had a kidney stone. I've been keeping it down to a slight ache with pain meds. What a way to ring in the New Year!
Y'all come back,
French Muse Afternoon
