Tips for Windows
Curtains or blinds?
Blinds are practical, allowing you to adjust the light that comes in, while curtains are more of a design element. What’s best for your space?
Install a non-traditional window
While most windows are square or rectangular, they can come in all shapes and sizes. Change things up with a circular or arch-shaped window.
Add a valance to your window
A window valance is a great addition to a window as it works to hide the bars or hardware that come with drapes and curtains.
Bring natural light in
Install a skylight or high window into a room to add natural light and provide ventilation.
Go green with your windows
Replace your windows to reduce utility costs by choosing energy-efficient options made from environmentally friendly materials.

Privacy Glass Using Contact Paper

Do you have windows or doors in your home that you want to make a little more private? In my home office, I have two glass doors that lead into our backyard - the only problem? They also lead my neighbors eyes in as well. As a renter, I can't buy new doors and don't want to invest in heavy duty window coverings, so I came up with a solution. Using budget-friendly contact paper, I created a simple stick-on frosted glass method that is tasteful and completely removable upon move-out! Be sure to check out other DIY home office projects!

DIY Window Bench With Storage

Today I’m going to show you how my husband built a window bench with storage for our master bedroom.I’ve had this project burning in the back of my mind for a long time. Initially, I really wanted a window bench with drawers, but we had an incident, you can read more about it on my blog ( so I decided to ditch the drawers and simply make a bench with a trunk instead.
