Having the tree taken down in the backyard to make room for our garage resulted in a super hot back porch...Yes, that's Ricky...looking out the back. Our whole back porch is windows..and the heat of the sun this summer has created a very uncomfortable situation for anyone and anything that needs to be out there. Ive seen the temp there get to 130degrees!
Yesterday I made some window treatments and if I do say so myself, they are pretty cool (pun intended)!
I swear, you can find anything on the Internet! I took afew minutes to google "porch curtains" and took a hint from a lady that used painters tarps to make hers. So off to Home Depot I went.
Of course I had LOTS of help while cutting and sewing. But within 3 hours I was done!
Here are the results of my labors! I love that they are light and airy, but will hold out some heat and cold. Easy to "raise" them when I want to open windows.
Best part is, the kitties approve!
