Blinds & Curtains

June 28, 2013

The house came with very nice and upgraded faux wood blinds and while I really like that you can control the amount of light that comes through just by twisting a dowel I decided not to replace the blinds that my lovely Azul had broken. Why? Because dusting and cleaning them can be such a tedious and annoying process.  Plus the blinds are not cheap.

So instead we installed a double rod and hung a sheer fabric for privacy in one and plan to hang a decorative fabric in the other. So far I’ve replaced the blinds in the master bedroom and in the dining room with IKEA’s sheer curtain called Matilda and I adore them. I can’t wait to add the second layer of fabric. It is going to look fantastic!

Check out the progress in both rooms.
