"To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk."
I love art, gardening, junking and all kinds of vintage stuff! This blog will have treasures I find, things I have remade into new treasures, cool vintage stuff- and also photos I take of garden art and recycling that I find on my jaunts. And of course it will feature my home...the ultimate recycling/renovating project!

Wooden blinds...cheap and easy.
Until this winter, I'd not been home enough during the day to realize how the glare from these windows would be strong enough to even wash out the TV. I love the old windows though, and don't want to cover them too much.
These are some cheap wooden blinds I'd had in a room at the shop. With the move at the shop, I took them down and brought them home. They are the perfect width for these windows! woot! Pretty much free blinds! I did shorten them a bit so they wouldn't be so heavy.
One down, one to go. I think it's going to work! You can see it cuts the glare quite a bit, and when they are up, the pretty old windows are still showing off.
All done! I think it looks pretty good and solves the problem just fine!
