 You are all very inventive what great ideas for window covers.welldone

The 'slides', recycling project is a good idea, lets light pass through, adds privacy, extra layer of insulation and pretty too, a unique type of stained glass window......

There's always an answer to a problem, some great ideas, I may have to look at some of the window coverings myself.  I have a thermal, blackout blind in my bathroom, some faux window dressings would be great....

The things I learn from here!  You are amazing, thanks so much,

Odelle. magic wave

But a Jabot (pronounced in French!) is like this and you wear it.

I'll try that again!

Lol quite agree Terrier and ep.

Just talking to hubby tonight and he thought the short curtains on one side and long ones on the other would look odd doh. Mind you I think we are going to have problems with types of hangings as we may have to use a pole and where do you put the division and still put window curtains to one side and door curtains to the other without looking odd. A curtain track would be the best option in that case but then we have the problem of getting curtain track, I don't think I have seen it here in Latvia and not easy for son to carry out in his luggage in April whistle. Will have to do some investigations.eeek

Joanna, could it be ordered and shipped, or would that cost the proverbial arm and leg?  And re your post in another thread, is an acre in Europe the same as in the USA? I know a pint isn't! what_the_heck

I have 12 1/2 hectares in European money but I think the acre is the same in England as America according to the esteemed Wikipedia cheers

If you have two long narrow curtains on the door, so when they are open it doesn't look lopsided and one short curtain that opens away from the door ( if you get my drift) it doesn't look too odd....

Kateuk makes things at http://www.etsy.com/shop/finkstuff and sometimes she does this too http://www54paintings.blogspot.com/ and also this http://finkstuff.weebly.com/

I think I do Kate and I shall look into that.cheers It would be best if the radiator wasn't under the window full stop but then that would require a major remodel. doh
