New Window Treatment

Our window treatment around the sliding glass door was a valence made out of siding, covered in batting and then in fabric. Mom and I made these a few years ago, but the look of them was getting pretty old. We needed to lighten up the door, and make it look a little larger than it actually is. Here is the before...So we removed the valance, Jeff sanded the wall and filled it in with spackle, then it was painted. We got some bamboo shades from Depot to match the floors, then some big white Ikea curtains to line them. Add a $10 tree from Ikea too, and here is the result!

  1. Beth,
    Did you use ONE bamboo blind for your sliding glass door? I keep reading that you should use two smaller ones because one would be to heavy to lower and rise.
