Next steps…

To finish off the kitchen I still have a “few’ things to take care of…

  1. finish the toe kick
  2. install new base
  3. install ice maker
  4. pull cable from attic for tv
  5. replace drywall
  6. install backsplash
  7. install over the range microwave
  8. replace light fixtures
  9. replace window covering
  10. finish patio door surround
  11. replace cabinet pulls
  12. refinish cabinets with wear
  13. paint and decorate!

Last night I spent some time researching window coverings for the large window in my kitchen. I started off looking at Smith + Noble and ordered some free samples of wood blinds with a tape ladder which would cost around $235 for the single window. I also looked at roman shades, but at $800 that is just not in this Renolista’s budget!!


As much as I like plantation shutters they are just too pricey for a home I’m not planning on staying in long term, so this was a nice compromise! It adds style and the look of the wood without the custom price. However, not one to make a rash decision I looked at a few more sites including and found that not only do they have some screaming good deals, but they also have some VERY nice faux wood blinds as well!

All include a tape ladder with many color choices. I ordered some samples from both sites and am waiting anxiously to receive them! Anything will be an upgrade from the metal cheap-o blinds the previous owner purchased for the sale. I think window coverings will make such a difference in the new space! Now if the USPS would just hurry up and drop them off….
