I sorta fell in love with the look of bamboo blinds. Look how lovely they can be:
They were super easy to install, especially if you have a nice husband to do it for you.
Yeah, this was before they were installed in the living room. Hello, world! Please feel free to watch me in my home!
After installation–much better! The shades are easy to open and close and even when they’re closed, they still let in a lot of natural light, which is what I wanted. For me, there is nothing worse than living in a dark cave. Lobster, on the other hand, would be happy to live in a dark cave because there would be no glare on the t.v. Really? Men!

Love the blinds and your blog. I’m a new reader and really appreciated your post regarding fear. Especially that it ends with your name…JOY, the perfect counter to fear!
Also love the your DH is sitting in the PINK CHAIR in this post! LOL
@Jeanean–I know! As much as he hated the Pink Chair, he admitted it was comfy. Now it’s pretty too, although he won’t necessarily admit that!
Just stumbled across your blog – great inspiration for a new blogger! Hopefully my upcoming DIYs will turn out as great as yours!
PS: Totally doing the bamboo. Thanks for the idea!

Bamboo blinds have sure withstood the times, hasn’t it? I’ve got this linked to my bamboo post too today, for inspiration!
