Has anyone ever tried a program similar to WindowBlinds? Basically lets you download styles to change the look of your desktop, icons, etc.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.asp?library=1" target="_blank">http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.asp?library=1</a>

It was annoying. :p<br><br><br><br>
Plus! is sort of the same but it leaves the actual windows the same. That was annoying too. can we say overkill?

Oh I've got very Ikea this year, although the nearest store is 50 miles away <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br>
Last month we bought 4 bookcases, flat pack, and I convinced my husband to saw up two of them and refit- so we have wall to wall shelves in the living room now.<br><br>
And then all the lovely kitchen thingys. I treated myself to some glass storage containers for the fridge, so posh.<br><br>
An Ikea/ furnishings thread I could live in...

Avalon - You'll be happy to hear this, the reason I asked is because they have a cool Mac theme. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Yeah, I'm a poser but whatever.

Decorated? It's pretty much the same. I just have paintings and a wreath my mom made on the wall. Maybe I'll take some updated pics. Hey! You're not going to turn my thread into a home decorating thread!

Yes we do.<br><br><br><br>
* thread hijack*<br><br><br><br>
I like bamboo blinds to, but think I prefer velvet curtains.<br><br><br><br>
We got metal blinds in the kitchen and when they get greasy it's not easy to clean them.<br><br>
I might replace them with cotton curtains, that would be easier to clean.

*sigh* I want SOME kind of curtains in my bedroom. We've lived in this house for approaching two years, and I haven't found any curtains that I like yet. I'm probably too picky. At first, I thought that some kind of fishnet thingies would go well with the nautical theme I have going on in my bedroom, but then it hit me, "DUH, Skylark, you're a VEGETARIAN! Fishnets are part of the fish-killing process, and THAT doesn't go well at ALL with the live-sea-life theme."

I know, I could do that, but I wanted something I'd love. Perhaps I'll have to settle.

True.<br><br><br><br>
But 'fishnets' DO go well with a red-light district prostitute theme, if you were looking to start up something new.<br><br><br><br><i>CLASSY</i>

Ah, well, I wasn't going for that kind of a theme, either. Sorry, Av, I'll let you keep the red-light fishnets if you like.<br><br><br><br>
I also thought about some kind of bead strings, but that might have connotations to the pearl trade, and I'm not too crazy about that.<br><br><br><br>
I think I'll just get some plain white cotton curtains.

Yeah, there's a big tree partially obstructing any view into my front window, and we're out in the country enough that only birds could see in my back window. It's not that I NEED curtains to ward of Peeping Toms, but I'd like to have curtains.

I have lots of second hand curtains. If I get fed up I swap them about. I said if I could make up my mind, and saw some curtains I really liked, I'd buy some new ones. Six years later I'm still undecided. I did buy new thermal liners for some of the windows, expensive but apart from keeping us warm in winter, they are a total sunblock in summer, the front windows all face south and it gets as hot as hell if I don't draw the curtains midday. No one sold blackout blinds wide enough (eleven foot) and fitting two side by side was going to be really awkward.<br><br>
I used to have bamboo blinds in some rooms at my last house- but from outside you can see right through them at night when the lights are on- definitely not a wise idea in a bedroom.
