All the years we've lived here, we've had these giant bushes in front of the windows that blocked anyone from being able to see in. But after the flooding, Adam ripped them out so he could fix it. So, for the past 6 months or so, there's been an open view into our house, especially at night. I wanted lace curtains and I already had the fabric before he ripped out the bushes. Well, I don't think lace would really cut it anymore. Really, the final straw in finally doing it was that we have new neighbors who are always out in their backyard and their backyard is right inline with our bay window. So, I finally made a decision on new curtains and put them up today.
They're nothing fancy looking but they are insulated so hopefully they'll help reduce cooling/heating costs.
