Blind Idea

Blind Idea

Guess what? I’m being featured today over at C.R.A.F.T. Check it out and say hi!

But before you go, take a look at this. Do you have this abomination in your home? I’m talking about vertical blinds. I do and I HAAAAAATE them. Nothing say ‘home’ quite like listening to clacking plastic all day. Did I mention I hate them? But also I’m lazy and also I’m not sure what to do about them, because ugly as they are, they are effective.

Well Shalon was also tired of watching her blinds swing to and fro, so she simply ripped the plastic panels out and used the existing clips to hang curtain panels! Slides open with ease and no longer looks like a dorm room. Fantastic and easy! Check it out on her blog Love, Shalon.

    Oh GOODNESS, I LOLed about the clacking plastic sound!! I SOOOO know this sound. Before we moved here, we rented a gorgeous house that had vertical blinds on all the slider doors…including our bedroom and those puppies would clack all night long! We hated it so we threw rolled up towels against them at the bottom. LOL SOOO glad I won’t allow them here! 🙂

    Oh, my gosh, that is an amazing idea. I might get ambitious enough to try it someday. It has to be nicer than those boring, boring white plastic things!

    I am not a big fan of vertical blinds either.

    Love, Shalon
