We have a large bay window in our living room that looks out on our very private 3 acre backyard. I took down the blinds the came with the house as we had never closed them in 3 years. There remained a very nice but unremarkable white valance that did nothing for the view or room. I haven't decided whether to hang decorative drapes on the sides (and what kind) or whether to put trim aournd the window.
So long story short, I had one of those middle of the night crazy thoughs and had to try it out.
Can you guess what I have done? with book pages sewn together?
It is definitely something I haven't seen except in my crazy middleof the night thoughs.
The color of the old paper works well in the room....
I lightened this one so you could see a bit better. And haven't mastered photoshop so I couldn't brighten and lighten the inside without blowing out the outside. So please excuse the BRIGHT view.
It makes me smile so it will stay temporarily and probably get tweaked a bit until I decide on how to dress this window. So what do you think, creative or crazy shoddy? (and any suggestions for a real treatment for the window are most welcome).
