Hate Your Space?

So there's this wall. It's giant. 14 feet tall, to be precise. And it's what you see when you walk into our family room/den/whatever you call it and also pretty quickly when you walk into the front door of our house. I have struggled and struggled with this wall and these windows.

I've mentioned the skating rink affect this house had when we bought it, so at first, I was ok with the curtains hanging so low, because we wanted to bring the room in, cozy it up a bit.

That lasted all of a couple weeks. Then I tried four panels. Different panels. Brown panels. Orange panels. Patterned panels. Plain panels.

I know you're supposed to hang the curtains high high high, but I hate when there's like, oh, I don't know, three feet between the rod and the top of the windows. So I've been thinkin. And I have a plan.


  1. I can't wait to see what you come up with because I have the very same problem in my family room!

  2. I have the same problem also, or at least I did. I purchased lovely drapery panels at Ikea, sewed them together because they were still not long enough, and installed them WAY up near the ceiling (actually under the bulkhead).
    I'm looking forward to seeing how you solve your problem.

  3. I do apologize, I meant to include a link to the post...here it is

  4. Can't wait to see what you do....and my daughter would love the ice skating rink...she's a skater!

  5. If it is an evil plan for word domination, count me in...
