Yes, I'm still here...I have been going back and forth to Mississippi this Summer so have been a little MIA on the blog. You are more than welcome to check out what I have been working on there: www.opashouse.blogspot.com

Before: These drapes were dark and dated with a heavy cornice that completely took away from the 9 ft ceilings.
