My next home improvement project will be my college aged son’s room. He is only home during the semester breaks and I want to redesign his room with storage options, and features to support his transient lifestyle while providing easy organization options for when he is not at home. This will involve installing closed cabinet storage, docking stations for electronics, and futon bed option so that the space can have flexibility while he is away.

We have several decks, but the one we sit and relax on is off our family room/kitchen area. We like to sit near our wall fountain and enjoy a glass of wine or just listen to music. This deck has 100% western exposure though; so this spring I am adding outdoor curtains. I have the cable rod system, grommet kit and canvas drop cloths from a home store. This year we can enjoy our space with privacy and shade from the sun. All for under $75.00, the cost of one outdoor curtain from a leading home decor store P Barn.
