Saturday Hunt - Shades

Well, these are my new shades that I'm trying to install. I thought it would be so easy, but of course with a house, nothing is easy. Before installing, I have to paint the existing window frame. Which technically should be easy. But they are metal, there is some rust, some pieces of the wall outside the frame are falling apart, and the screws for the old blinds/etc. leave holes which need to be filled. I'm workin' on it.

What I'm replacing. Nasty evil dirty blinds.

And not sure if you know this band/song, but it was what I thought of immediately. Timbuck 3 - The Future's so bright, I gotta wear shades. I chose to use the official video, so no embedding.

Oh, what an ambitious project! Well, a necessary ambitious one.

The garage is on my agenda for today.

haha! I thought of that song too! Love it.

You are the perfect homeowner always with the projects going on. Your windows are going to look awesome dressed in their new shades :-)

Great song! Loved it.

And you have the shades that I managed to leave out... yay!

Aren't home projects fun? Not. But you feel so good when they are finished.

I have a broken blind that I need to replace in the spare bedroom. Great examples of SHADES, including the song.

Ugh, I remember helping my mom hang shades in our condo one time, and it was very difficult. The first thing we tried to do was put up the brackets and screw them in, but the frame of the window was metal, not wood. We were both ready to scream.

Nice shades. man. Great take on the word.

You are going crazy with the decorating and refurbishing. Very nice!

Too much work for me, I'd rather rent, hehe.
