We've (ahem, he's) already been working quite hard and gotten a lot done, but there's still A LOT to do. So, we're trucking away at the list piece by piece.
Next up was the kitchen window coverings. Prompted by the neighbouring homeowner at their kitchen at the same time as I was and a glance out the window at each other, I decided to bump this up on the list.
A reminder of where we started:
Which, honestly, was vastly improved simply by taking them down and having nothing on those windows. But that was just a transition until the next day when we installed wooden slat blinds in the place of the doileys:
Despite the colour of the walls AND the kitchen door, it's already a huge improvement and a very welcome change into the 21st century. Scratch that-half of the 20th century wouldn't even have used the doiley curtains. Regardless, an improvement.
Although the improvement is making the rest of the kitchen look bad, I have to keep reminding myself---baby steps! Can't do everything at once.
