We almost forgot about looking around for a window dresser. We did set aside a budget for it much earlier on but in the flurry of activities forgot to plan for it until last weekend. Did some research on the net to get an idea of what kind of costs to expect. Visited one curtain maker in Joo Chiat and another in Tiong Bahru. Both their quotes were lower than we had budgeted for, and close to what we’d read in forums and blogsites. Today we confirmed our order with the one in Tiong Bahru (D’Zander). Chose some pretty linens with safe, neutral colours – black-outs (or ‘dim-outs’ as they call it here) for the two rooms and regular curtains for the living hall.
I really wanted blinds, though. Maybe I can still get it for the small kitchen window. Teehee.
