one of the things that bothered me when i first walked into the great room of my new rental house
was how small the windows were on either side of the fireplace. not only that, but the switch for
the fireplace was located right next to the window on the left....talk about an eye sore!
i knew that i would easily be able to fix the problem (at least visually) by hanging the curtain rod a little
bit higher and off center from the window:
so when the curtain panels were hung, the window appears much wider...and i don't have to look
at the switch on the wall!
i still have to iron, hem and add some trim to the curtains, but overall, i am pretty happy with the way
they look. it really is amazing what warmth window treatments can being to a room...it wasn't until these panels were hung that this great room finally started to feel a little more like home to me!
