This just in:
much progress has been made at the Dutch colonial!
Its wonderful, original woodwork has finally been restored!
Have a look-see for yourselves.
That is the view from our dining room,
looking through our pocket doors into the living room.
Here are the dining room’s beautiful windows:
Hell-O gorgeous, am-I-right?
How on earth could I cover any of that with window treatments?
So here’s what I want (lower half of the window only):
Faux wood shutters from JC Penney.
Notice that, in this version, there are 4 panels per window.
This style is what I like to call old school,
+ wouldn’t that be perfect for our vintage Dutch colonial?
I always fear that old school might actually be the dreaded GRANNY!
In fact, when I showed the shutters to G.O.,
even he said something about their being too Seventies!
Ha ha ha! What!!??
So. Here’s why I blog (today, anyway):
I need your votes, re: the old school shutters . . .
. . . versus something a little more now, like this:
I have to admit that I’m loving the what’s-happening-now version!
Either way, they’re really not that expensive,
+ the Penney’s window lady will come out to your house,
with samples + everything!
I need to make time to call JC Penney today!
If you would give me your opinion, which shutter style has your vote?
OLD SCHOOL, yay or nay?
Or would you prefer the What’s-Happening-NOW version?
Thumbs up or thumbs down?
Disclaimer: Actually, I’d prefer the old schools,
as they would be age appropriate for our Dutch colonial
(unlike how I dress ** — HAA!)
