When we firs moved into the house we had vertical blinds every where. Slowly they have made there way out , just two left. I love the front window but it gets very bright during the day, no direct sun but a ton of light . The curtains are perfect , a woven fabric from IKEA. It still lets a little light in but add privacy for the evenings .
We bought two wooden dowels the unfinished brackets and some finials , I sprayed everything black.
Thanks to my helper , he gets the credit for the hanging , I handed him the tools and screws. Now I need to fill the old holes in the wall and paint ....that's another day.
