All opinions are mine alone. #WorryFreeMessFree #CollectiveBias I’ve been wanting to update my deck window treatments for about ten years. While my kids were growing up, I put a lot of home improvements on hold. I loved when my kids were little, but they were also messy. Having kids comes with fingerprints and stains on your walls and fabrics. My kids are older now, but still messy so I decided to stop putting off decor updates.
