I think that this is a huge plus because now our guests will not feel exposed when changing!! AND no more early morning sun rays waking up guests.
We went with the AWESOME Honeycomb Shades from Select Blinds that we also have installed in the other bedrooms in our house. The ones in this room are both light filtering and cordless.
These blinds have been sitting down in our spare bedroom for about two months now. Nothing like putting off a 5 minute project for two months. I mean these blinds are SUPER easy to put in... In reality it took Matt more time to get a few tools together... and the best part is that you do not even need to measure anything!
Here is my cute hubby getting all of the hardware together that came with the blinds. You can just tell that he is loving this camera in his face!
This is Matt's FAVORITE utility knife... every time he uses it he asks if he has told me how much he likes it...
It is a Milwaukee Fastback Flip Utility knife
If you have a right angle on your window you are able to even cut out these first two steps... but it you have caulking (like we do) between out windows and molding you will need to cut out a notch to make a space for the brackets to sit flush on the window...
Matt simply help up the bracket approximately 2 inches from the outside of the window and used his razor to cut on each side of the bracket. and cut the caulking out.
He repeated this step on the other side of the window as well so that we had two notches in the top caulking.
Next, Matt made sure that the hardware fit in and was flush.
Here are our two notches...
Now to pull out the big guns... or more accurately, the electric drill.
Matt swears by this little guard thing that goes over your screw... he said that it holds the screw in place so that the drill does not slip and bang out the molding... I'm not able to provide a very technical explanation but it makes sense to me.
Now place two screws into the wall.
and one screw into the top.
Repeat on other side and grab your shade because you're ready to install!
Clip the shade into the front of the brackets and snap into the back! DONE!!!!
BAM... it was that easy!!!
I love that you are able to move the shade up and down easily WITHOUT a cord! All about baby safety in the Park Household
