A Letter to My Windows

Dear Windows,

You have been a part of our home since day 1. We didn’t have a lot of money when we first moved in, so we were left with no choice but to cover you in low grade shades. I hope you can forgive us for mistreating you for all these years.

Windows, without you, our lives would be dark, cold, and our house would be considered a shed. You are the eyes to our house allowing us to see out and others to get a glimpse inside. I often look through you and not at you because I’m ashamed of the ill-fitting cheap blinds I covered you with, and the store bought curtains were only supposed to be temporary!Bad-Window-Treatments

To the windows we left bare, I’m sorry. You’re funny shaped, you’re in a place where no one can see in, and quite frankly, we weren’t sure what to do with you. Oval window before & after with shutters

That all changed when I met somebody…
I met Ashley P., a window treatment specialist, in the Quad Cities.  She showed me that a bare window is a missed opportunity to add style to the interior space, to better frame the outside view, and to save on energy costs!

Together, she and I are going to give you the respect you deserve; not just one window, but all windows!   Ashley helped us find these inspiration images that we’re using for the new treatments!

I’m embarrassed I disrespected you with cheap blinds for all this time. I am going to fix the rookie mistakes I made in the beginning, and I am going to treat you right with proper shades and drapes. With her help, you will look and feel better inside and out. Your treatments will last longer, my family will sleep better, and our energy bill will go down. I’m sorry this has been a long time coming, but I was waiting to meet the right person to guide us through this journey.

Sincerely,

Shaping up our Shades
