New Year's resolution ~~~ CHECK!

One of my New Year's resolutions this year was to finally get rid of the vertical blinds on our sliding glass door and the 2 windows on either side of it. 

Thankfully, this can now be marked off of the list!

The problem?  This is a bay window area.  I wasn't sure how to just add curtains.  What do you do with the smaller windows on either side?

Here is my solution:




SO...



The finished product:





Yeah, I can check this one off of my list! And I have 1 1/2 months to spare!


It's Tuesday, so you know what that means don't you?

What a neat idea! I have a bay window too and I just left the finials off the ends of the curtain rods to make them look more connected. I never though of using pipe fittings like that.

How clever! I have a similar set of windows and I bought the curved rod connectors. Didn't think to use pipe fittings. Thrifty!

That looks great! Very clever using copper piping. I have a PVC rod under a cornice in my big den that I had put curtain rings on. No one can see it, but I get to have drapes that cover my verticals.

Great idea! I have a bay window also and wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. Thanks for the tips!!

It's perfect and looks so much prettier! You're so smart!

I got caught up with kid stuff this week. Your frame is boxed and ready to ship in the morning :)

That is a brilliant solution! Aren't you smart! A few years too late for me...I never knew what to do with my bay window in a previous house. Don't have any now.
