I finally got something up on the window in the r/w/b room.
The shelf was over the window in baby boy's room (before he moved upstairs and that room became my office/sewing room) It spent several years in the attic collecting dust and I brought it with me not really knowing if I would have a place to use it or not.
It used to be blue - but not the right blue for this room. I looked for a pic but haven't found one yet (pre-digital camera)
I painted the shelf and made the valance - which it turns out I should have lined but I'm not taking it down and doing it over.
I need to get out my camera book and see if I can figure out why my camera isn't taking pictures as well as it was. I'm sure someone (wonder who?) has changed a setting - I just need to figure out which one so I can change it back! I know some of the problem with these pictures is simply lighting but I still think there is something set wrong.
