Sometimes I could just whack myself over the head with a rubber mallet for not making simple changes to my home that make it so much more pleasant to live in. For years I have been suffering living with curtains in my bedroom that my landlord put in.
I’ve never liked them. They are dreary and drab. I totally get why my landlord chose them, they “go” with everything and are unobtrusive, but that’s why I don’t like them. They suffer from what I call “beige”; they are BORING, bland, and blah. They aren’t even beige, they’re like ecru or eggshell or off-white, or some other fancy word for neither here nor there. Why oh why has it taken me years to change them?! Because I’m lazy I thought it would take effort and really it took just about no effort.
All I had to do was pick out a different set of window panels and hang them. I found these Allen + Roth curtain panels via Lowe’s and as soon as I swapped them out for the old curtains, I wanted to hit myself over the head with the aforementioned rubber mallet because I could have made this change YEARS ago. I guess I just didn’t realize that making such a small change in my home could be so darned satisfying.
