My house came with some nice wooden blinds that were probably brand new in my living room, but not necessarily my favorite choice. I was definitely going to put curtains up, but when I saw John & Sherry's "bamboo shade w/ white curtain look" I just HAD to do it, ahem copy it! How many American ladies have put this look into their homes after seeing John & Sherry do it so artfully in their own homes? Windows all across the country thank you!!!
Here is John & Sherry's Living room that served as inspiration: (photo from www.thisyounghouse.com)

Here is my after!
**Nevermind the clutter on the coffee table, etc. I was too excited to photograph the scene to clean up & tidy before taking the pic! Also, my kitty is the black & white bump on the top of the couch. He was a great help!
