Where there is a will, there is a way (sometimes)

A while back my mini-blind in the bedroom fell down. It did not bother me a lot until now, when I have the full afternoon sun-heat directly into my window, so I decided to try to get the blind back up myself, if I could.

It took some trying, but I managed it, and it darkened the room, but it was so stark and industrial looking. Found the sheer wall-hanging I used to have over my bed until Jasmyn decided to remove it, put it on a curtain-rod and voila! Think it looks nice enough to share.

Wonderful custom made sheers, and congrats on all the mechanics it took to make it work.

What an improvement over blinds. I never saw sheers like this before, I like it.

Very nice, keep the spray bottle hand in case the little rascals try to climb.

Yes, Don! There used to be a book-case inder the window, it has been moved, Taffy used to spray on the window, that's why the re-arrangement. He is not pleased, but so far, so good!
