These are the "before" of our family room. Notice the yellow everywhere (even the ceiling), and really notice those icky valances. S took these pictures during the inspection, so you're looking at Hwang memorabilia.
Then this is after we moved in. Still yellow.
And this is tonight. Definitely less yellow. We have PTSD from those valances (they were sticky with grease and grime...ick!!!), so for now we have no plans of adding any window treatments on these windows. See the clock? Julia is in love with it. She tells us "clock" every time she sees it. $30! I thought that was a pretty good deal.
