Blogger Shannon Fox of Fox Hollow Cottage had just finished installing her new wood floors, when she and her husband looked around and had a shocking realization.
Here’s what Shannon wrote to her readers:
“Come flash back with me… to the day we completed our new wood floors. Let me share with you the first words out of Jim’s (my husband) mouth when he stood back to admire his handy work;
‘I don’t care what it costs, we have got to get rid of those mini blinds!'”
In their gorgeous new space, crummy plastic blinds were just bringing the look down. She decided to upgrade her old mini blinds to Norman Woodlore Plantation Shutters from Blinds.com or as she calls them, “the holy grail of window coverings”.
Adventures in Flooring
After a refrigerator leak and resulting flood that ruined lots of flooring, Shannon and her husband made lemonade by upgrading the floors to beautiful dark hardwood.
When the floors were nearly done the table saw burst into flames, but with a replacement, they prevailed. All of this craziness on top of a DIY install – that’s dedication if we’ve ever seen it.
Finished Look – Coming Soon!
When Shannon got her (gorgeous) decor in order, it was even more obvious that the windows needed an update!
