I think the family room also lacks wood tones that tie it to my eating area table. Fortunately I found a relatively easy and inexpensive remedy for this quandary. So, on a not-so-busy Friday I wondered through the shade aisle at Home Depot and found these. Perfect wood tone, great price, and decent quality for the money. A quick look for similar custom shades came in at about $150 each so I figured $150 for 4 shades wasn't a bad way to solve my problem. I was able to install 3 out of 4 of these guys myself but one bracket on the 4th needed Handy Hubby's attention.
And now I have this...
I love the layered look, but I'm debating whether to keep the sheers. For now they can tuck behind the curtains out of the way.
I'm fairly certain Handy Hubby is perplexed by these shades since I told them we will likely never use them. We use the sheers if we need privacy but we rarely shut those (dark windows at night don't bother us).
What do you think? Too many layers?
