A Little Treatment

Our bay window has had the same treatment on it for five years. It was left by the previous owner, and I was too chicken to deal with it. There was nothing really wrong with it, I thought. I didn't love it, and I even hated it a little, but still I let it stay. Well, no more! After great thought and agonizing about what I wanted my bay window's style to be, I believe I have got it figured out. And after searching high and low at antique stores, I have what I want!
Here, I give you the before. This is the picture of Josh taking down the old treatment. I have no other pictures of them, because, really, why would I?

And here is the new treatment! Antique shutters, and grassroot blinds. It is much more "us", and goes better with our style.

I had the same issue with our bay window---the previous owners had vertical blinds covering the whole thing and it was terrible. I have settled for panels but I seriously love those shutters!! I might have to keep my eyes peeled for some shutters! it really makes a difference and adds charecter for sure!
