If one was to look at all my own window coverings as a whole, it’s my guess that they’d probably be confused as to what I ‘like.’
My bedroom has ‘kinda sorda curtains. They’re simply dummy panels using white fabric.
The livingroom has ‘old gate screens’.
The main bath has a weathered shutter made out of old fence panels and real hardware.
And my kitchen windows are… adorned with junk.
Weirdest most eclectic collection EVER.
Notice the lack of curtains? Pets. Need I say more?
And, have you also noticed my windows don’t offer privacy? Well… I have issues.
I NEED the sunshine in.
Ok, and being that we live on a VERY quiet street and greenbelt in back, that most certainly helps the cause some.
See… I don’t like looking through things. Even the decorative grids on all my windows are up above, offering nice detail but don’t get in my way. I don’t even like looking through venetian blinds.
And can I just say how very much I detest installing venetian blinds anyway?!? 2 years ago I got new windows in the house and all my existing (new) blinds have to be recut and installed. And I have NOT done it. Why?
I don’t want to look through them, clean them, nor install them. Yech!
Now, I also get, there are times when privacy is a must. It’s rather silly to kneel down on my bedroom floor when I have to get dressed! :)
And then there’s room darkening reasons. My son has a VERY hard time going to sleep on time when those long summer days hit.
So where does that leave little ‘ol eclectic me in those cases?
I’m workin’ on it.
And I’m THRILLED to tell you I’ve solved one of them. My son’s room and playroom just got these pretty nifty custom shades that:
installs in seconds (DINGDINGDING!)
totally blacks out his window (YES!)
they go up all the way EASILY when not needed (LOVE!)
no pet hair issues! (right ON!)
You won’t believe how quick they install. See that iPhone? I timed myself. Let’s just say they install FAST. AND with no hardware!
I’ve just shot a video reviewing and installing some custom shades, and you get a chance to win one for yourself!
And just for kicks? This is what I look like with no wrinkles. Can you believe that chick is 48?!? When I figure out how to make Picasa do this in real life, I’ll have a REAL post on editing… and no doubt be VERY rich.
