I have been wanting to add something to this window for a long time. Finally this morning I felt motivated to figure something out. I knew I didn’t want to spend any money so I was limited to the items in my house.
My first instinct was to grab a bit of white fabric and make a sort of valance. But as I was down in the basement I spotted these hanging from our sliding glass doors.
Nice 1960′s blinds, do you hear the Brady Bunch theme song? They are in every doorway in our basement. I had even taken one set down a few months ago and it was just sitting down there. Hmmmm.
I measured the window, turned the blinds so that the sticks went from side to side instead of up and down. Cut them to size with my scissors.
Then I nailed in 5 nails across the top of the window, slid the blinds on, and doubled them over on themselves.
I can even let them down so that they cover the entire window. I probably won’t do this but the option is there none-the-less.
Not to bad for free and it only took about 15 minutes.
Check out your basement, any 1960′s shades down there?
