In my kitchen window, I had a droopy curtain. The main purpose of this droopy curtain was to block the sun as it blinded me in the evening while washing dishes, cooking, etc.
Notice the pretty little cardinals and chickadees....
Since we now have a roof on the porch, the sun doesn't blind me. Hoo Rayyy! And I don't have to fight that awful curtain. One of these days, I'll make a faux roman shade to place there, but in the meantime, this is much better. Don't you agree?
