On the advice of the stager who is going to be furnishing my house, we removed the wooden blinds from the windows in the family room.
I also patched the walls you’re seeing there, but that’s another topic.
The problem with this is that the window behind the futon is in the reflection of the TV that’s to the right of me as I take this photo. You can’t have that.
So… binder clips and a blanket from World Wildlife Fund (I think) and blamo! We have a blind that works well enough!
