That time I was a "Handy Woman" (Megan's room)

Well, not really. I did work for a small... tiny....little person named Megan. The process to making Megan a "Room" is still in the works. I know I am going really slow but we are in no rush and things are doing along smoothly. On Tuesday I started working for Megan. She needed some curtains to hang, and I kind of made it a point for me to do Megan's room only.


This picture does not look pretty on how we handled the whole curtains but we bought these pink curtain years ago, I think about 2 years ago in hopes that one day we would use them. The only problem when we moved in here was that we only had two curtain and 3 windows, so I knew that at some point we would have to buy new curtain for her. I asked Megan what color of curtains she wanted and she asked for purple. So the next day, Jaime and I go  to Anna's linens and we buy some purple curtains.

I had the rods ready to go and Jaime had the "driller" thing ready for me to go. I did sweat and It was pretty hard to do. This was my first time drilling holes and putting rods in for the curtains. Pretty neat experience but definitely hard work. I believe it took me an hour and a half. The first one was the toughest one.


This was the finished product, I think it looks so much better but I do think it still is lacking something. I think I know what it is and I plan on going to back to the store to purchase it but for now this is what it looks like. I also have to iron out these curtains. I mean seriously there are so wrinkled, or I could put them in the dryer and have the dryer iron it.

You could buy cute curtain holders (I don't know what the real name for them is) so that during the day, you can hold them back. Like these... http://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=3736361. I like the purple curtains, though!
