It took the painters two days and some really tall ladders to get the family room out of beige and into the LIGHT! I got the vacuum the shades and when they were rehung (YOU WILL NEVER BELIEVE) they looked white! How? Huh? In the beige room they looked khaki color. Now, they look more ivory. It's some kind of decor miracle.

One more thing about the curtains ... the top curtains run on batteries to roll up and down. Since we've moved in, those batteries have been dead. (As previously mentioned.) So I ran out and got 40 AA batteries and got them all changed out before the painters reinstalled them. I dashed up to the remote control, instructions in and hand and .... nothing. I think the remote is totally dead. Because none of it works. Sigh. A call to Hunter Douglas will be in order this week.
