I am a terrible home decorator. I have NO ability to see something in a picture or in the package and envision what it will look like in my home.
I have blinds in our front window that are dangerous and I need ideas that are cheap cheap to replace them. We're not staying here or I'd install child safe ones, and we're pretty short on cash anyways.
The window is in 3 sections: 2 21inch on either side of a 57inch middle. The total width across is 108'. It's 54inches tall. My living room is beige, the wood is cherry and the furniture is beige and navy striped. I'm really a plain kinda gal, so I don't go for poufy/frilly/lacy.
I live in a subdivision so the neighbours can see in our front window from theirs and vice versa and I hate that. I also hate not letting any light into our living room because I don't like to turn lights on in the middle of the day.
I was looking at this:Tab Top Panels
But they're either open or shut.. and I'd need 4panels.
or this:Doubled Tab Top Panels
But the window is so wide that I need 8 panels to double them like the picture, and it's still either open or shut because I can't pull back the top layer due to the window width. Plus I just have a plain white regular curtain rod which will look, well wrong. My sister said I could make one out of a dowel for cheap... has anyone done that before?
I'm lost... I don't want layers on 2different rods because everything I've seen is hideous. I don't sew much, and the above panels are cheaper than sewing anyhow... would the fleece window quilts be easy to make? Cause I was going to have to plastic that window anyhow for the winter...
Now I'm just
Anyone want to offer an opinion?
