Roman Shades For Door
- (Roman shade) A flat fabric shade that folds into neat horizontal pleats when raised.
- (Roman Shade) A single sheet shade that rises up by lift cord in a tear drop or flat style that looks like an accordion folding up back and forth on itself. Reminds me of an opera house window treatment swag. Part of our Melhanna Shade collection.
- (Roman Shade) This window treatment style consists of a fabric shade with wooden slats inserted horizontally at intervals down its entire length. It is raised and lowered via pull cord as with other blinds, but gathers soft folds as it does so.
- A doorway
- Used to refer to the distance from one building in a row to another
- A hinged, sliding, or revolving barrier at the entrance to a building, room, or vehicle, or in the framework of a cupboard
- a swinging or sliding barrier that will close the entrance to a room or building or vehicle; "he knocked on the door"; "he slammed the door as he left"
- anything providing a means of access (or escape); "we closed the door to Haitian immigrants"; "education is the door to success"
- doorway: the entrance (the space in a wall) through which you enter or leave a room or building; the space that a door can close; "he stuck his head in the doorway"
Rethymno, a city of approximately 40,000 people, is the capital of Rethymno Prefecture in the island of Crete. It was built in antiquity (ancient Rhithymna and Arsinoe), even though it has never been a competitive Minoan center. It was, however, strong enough to mint its own coins and maintain a mild urban growth. One of these coins is today depicted as the crest of the town with two dolphins in a circle. Rethymno started growing again when the Venetian conquerors of the island wanted to have an intermediate commercial station between Heraklion and Chania acquiring its own bishop and nobility. Today's old town (palia poli) is almost entirely built by Venetians. It is one of the best preserved old towns in Crete. The town still maintains its old aristocratic appearance, with its buildings dating from the 16th century, arched doorways, stone staircases, Byzantine and Hellenic-Roman remains, small Venetian harbor and narrow streets. The Venetian Loggia today houses the information office of the ministry of culture. The big municipal gardens are ideal for those in search of shade and tranquility. Throughout the year various activities are organized which draw a large crowd. The Wine Festival is held there annually at the beginning of July. Another festival is held on 7-8th of November, in memory of the destruction of Arkadi Monastery. It has a Venetian castle called the Fortetza which is the one of the biggest and best standing castles in Crete. Other monuments include the Neratze mosque (St. Katherine's Catholic Church), the Great Gate (megali porta, Porta Guerra), the Piazza Rimondi (Rimmondi square), the Venetian Loggia etc. Today its main income is tourism, with large Facilities that have been built the past 20 years and Agriculture especially, for its olive oil and Mediterranean products. It is also the base of the Philosophical School and the University Library of the University of Crete and the School of Social and Political Sciences having 8,000 students every year on its University Campus at "Galos" and where the Academic Institute of Mediterranean Studies is situated.

Several Days Into Kitchen Cabinet Painting Project, September 2008: Anthropologie Diamond Gal Knobs
It is Thursday evening, and many days later, I think I may have survived the hardest home improvement project I have tackled to date: painting the hideous 1950s heart pine kitchen cabinets. After many layers of paint, some tears, a good bit of sweating, and lots of frustration, there may be light at the end of the tunnel. Long story short, I wound up making some changes to the Heather Chadduck paint scheme. The top cabinets were supposed to be Behr Swiss Coffee, and it just looked "blah"---probably b/c I have ugly cabinets with no architectural interest! After some failed experiments this week, I decided to use the dark gray "Black Pepper" paint in place of the Behr Swiss Coffee. It looks better in person than the photos show, but I think this is as good as it will get...at least with my amateur skills! I still have some small touch-ups and a little "caulking" of some holes to do (and then a tad more touch-up paint...should have done this first!), but overall, I think I am done. I am ready to be done! I hope to attach the top cabinet doors on Saturday after the paint has cured another 24 hours. We also need to see about getting different drawer pulls tomorrow...the ones I got at Home Depot won't work (LONG story), so we are hitting Lowe's and Ikea in hopes of finding my dream pulls in my budget. Hence, that is why you see no drawer pulls right now! I now to get to my insulated Roman shades from Gardener's Supply and add my accessories. I hope that in a few months I will be able to save up and get new flooring to replace the ugly vinyl that has been around for what appears to be forever! There are also two panels of ugly backsplash that can't be removed unless we want to do new drywall, so I am looking into seeing if I can attach some white subway tile to it to "dress it up" a bit. This is the only project I have done that did not give me the "wow" factor I had hoped for, but it is an improvement over the way it was!
