Neither of us had any good thoughts for the horrible plethora of brown curtains and shades left by the Previous. Even less than for the ikea crap. The curtains sagged and sucked in all light and color in the front of the house, particularly after sundown. This shows them with a light sheer I added - a cheap solution for the moment, and one less brown panel. The cable system holding them up was put up badly, an utter pain to change the drapery, and from That Swedish Store as well.
So, when we found out we can't have gutters - no way to properly put them up, and an undulating roof edge, we figured we'd go ahead and do the rest of the cellular blinds. Gutter guy suggested we do a DIY section of gutter over the back porch, and call it good. We'll figure something out.
Down with the curtains. I wonder if there is anything to be done with the fabric? I feel it's important to somehow reuse it. Like with the desk (?) panels repurposed as compost bin.
The darkness is lifting, as we work our way through.
