Then we tore up the royal blue carpet, although it did make you feel very happy and sesame street-ish. You know, like the cookie monster. We left the radiator painted the blue wall color, to remind us of how far we'd come. Truthfully, we thought we needed special radiator paint, although we've since been told that is a misguided belief. Apparently Benjamin Moore or California Paints works just fine.
We still don't have curtains. I can't seem to find anything I like. I bought a sewing machine in the hopes of sewing my own curtains, but can't find anything that looks right. Suggestions?
