“Let there be many windows to your soul, that all the glory of the world may beautify it.”

Title quote by American poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

Internet, I need help. Because my house is crazy. Maybe you’ve heard.


We bought some fabric today for me to make some window treatments for our kitchen. That’s right, I am going to bust out the trusty Singer and sew some hems. Or possibly I will bust out the trusty Singer and then cry and make my mom come and sew them. She will be good at matching up the plaid. She made me a valance during the Super Bowl one year, and the plaid was lined up precisely. But I can do it! I am not as awesome at the sewing as she is, but I can do it! Maybe I will just get her to come and talk me through it. If I give her chocolate, I bet I can get her to agree to come and cheer me on.

Okay, so, here is where you come in.


I’m going to be making valances for these windows. As you can see, they are very close together. The only thing that we can think of is using those cheapo white rods and putting them really close together in the corner, since the valances will cover them up anyway (though I just admitted to using them on the internet, so it wouldn’t actually be a secret). Do I have any other options? Can I get an L-shaped rod? Is that a stupid question? Help me make my windows beautiful, internet. Help my crazy house.
