What would a wood slice do it if it could?
Become a silver handled cutting board of course. :)

This is one of my favorite rooms in my home.
I love every nook and cranny of this room.  I love the tufted ottoman and the two love seats and the pom pom pillows and the bookcases that we built in when we remodeled the room and the window seat and the light that dances across the almost 100 year old pine floors.
I love it all.
Except.
Except for the one thing I’ve never showed you before.  The windows in this room need SO much help!!!!!!!!  Good thing +Window World  is coming to the rescue. :)  Read all about how they are saving the day here:
