There are two smaller windows in the loft. One faces east, the other west. We get morning sun all year long through one and evening through the other. That's fine when it's cold, but this time of year, way too much heat comes in. They need to be covered when the weather is warm.
I had some not-so-pretty curtains hanging from a tension rod. Then I discovered a better option. The toile curtain/shade panels that I had made for the bedroom in our old house were just the right width for these windows.

I had planned to alter the length, but in playing around with them, I realized that just rolling them up at the bottom was good enough. I have so much on my to do list right now. Plus, the Nesting Place motto kept ringing through my head - It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful.

So, this turned into a really fast, easy and FREE solution. Aren't those the best!?!?!?
