More black!

 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,


  1. yikes! good luck with the kidney stone! hope that is what it is and no other surprises for you!

  2. Yikes is right. Kidney stones are the worst. Happy New Year to you and yours.

  3. Ouch ! Hope you will be pain free fast ! Hope you have a Happy New Year !

  4. Oh no! Kidney stones are not fun at all. Hope you feel better soon.


  5. Thank you for sharing the idea to paint curtain rods black! Putting this on my DIY list for 2012!

    Hope you feel better soon!


  6. The black stain really makes the curtains "pop." I love it!

    So sorry you are in pain. Keep us updated.

  7. Love the black on the curtain rod! super cute! and the ho ho ho... adorable!!! Happy-happy New year! *woot-woot*
