Remember the front room windows? No? Here they are - with the empty curtain rods still up:
The blinds on the middle window are hung higher than the side windows, for some unknown reason. ALL of the blinds were filthy. And that's after I washed them and hung curtains over them. They were here when we bought the house 13 years ago, and they were nice quality so we kept 'em
I took down the old blinds, patched and painted the window boxes,
removed the top valance rod and extended
the curtain rod to span all three windows.
I bought new cordless cellular shades in a shade called "Sahara". You can get these custom cut at Home Depot. I never knew that! I guess I will leave the curtain rods up for now. I might get inspiration.
Maybe a couple of panels? or a long valance? Hmmm....for now I am loving the blinds and how they coordinate nicely with the sandy colored walls!
On that note, look how the windows look nice from the outside...and check out the sunshine! This photo was taken 24 hours after the snowfall...I miss it already... that was fun!
