my solution for large windows
Remember my large windows?
I had to take care of them,
for a few reasons: privacy in the evening for the back,
barking control for the front (and echoing!)
and also energy efficiency, even with double pane windows!
I also previously mentioned that I am a little bite
of a curtain snob,
which happens to be a problem right now
as finances are tight.
So instead of buying yards and yards of fabric,
I went the painter drop cloth route,
I know it has been done before...
(including by me!)
But the price cannot be matched!
I purchased 7 drop clothes (9 x 6)
and after washing them and ironing them (!),
I hanged them on rods, close to the ceiling.
(and yes we have a stainless steel table!)
It balances out very nicely with the green walls
and I think it looks amazing with the fireplace.
Black dog likes this location,
even without a fire!
For the front and side windows,
I used double rods,
and reused the previous owner's light curtains,
they are too short but they will do until
I can purchase some better one
(they are natural fiber, so I do like them,
they just are too short!)
I am also planning on cutting this drop cloth in half
to make 2 panels,
one on each side of the window,
just need to finish organizing my craft place
(that could take a while!)
in the mean time it is functional!
Do you remember the weird wall I was talking about?
well here it is:
I am not sure how to describe it,
it is lattice-like, but sturdy,
it adds a lot of presence and light to both sides,
and it definitively has a fun retro vibe!
It is a great place to play hide and seek,
depending on the angle,
you can see through or get a solid wall,
it makes for some fun time!
To finish this part of the house
we need to put some art/picture/stuff
on the walls!
It feels already like home!
