I knew from the moment I bought my home that I'd want top down/bottom up window treatments. I don't want folks being able to look in my windows, nor do I want to necessarily look at my neighbor's roof. So, the task was to find shades that fit. For most of the windows, I made do with mounting them on the outside of the windows (partially to accommodate the cats wanting to sit on the sills). But one window was a really odd size and I didn't want to spend nearly $200 to cover it. So, for nearly two years, it has worn a temporary paper shade. Sad, but true.
