Window Treatments

There is some construction going on close to our backyard, and there is a new street light up that shines in through our window at night. This door is in our bedroom, and it leads to the backyard. James decided that he just could not stand to sleep with the light pouring through -despite the blinds- so, this is a picture of his redneck window treatment. He got a black garbage bag and taped it over the window with masking tape. I'm ready to see it go, but it's doing the job until we can have a better shade made.

And just so you'll know that the rest of our house doesn't look like that, these are the window treatments that I made. This is in the guest bedroom.
These are Roman shades in our living room.

  1. Hey, at least I didn't use aluminum foil!

  2. Ha! That's what I was going to say- at least it's not aluminum foil!

    I love your house! I really like the roman shades- did you make them yourself?

  3. Thanks, Desi! I did make the Roman shades, and it's going to be a long time before I try to make them for such large windows again!
