Using curtains lets you adjust light, privacy and they work really well to help insulate a room. By using two light curtains and a darker coloured pull down blind you get a good control of all three things.

I did this in teen boy room. Used radiator cover grill with grid pattern (could spray like metal) with beading edge to frame and stiffen. Hung so inner hung blind still pulls down fully. Adds privacy, reduces suns heat and drafts and looks cool. Add a couple of solar lights to window ledge for evening glow...

Cover a pull down shade with fabric of your choice. Great idea!---- This was SO easy and the shades really look awesome. Shades were $4 each at Walmart, fabric was $13. Total for whole project only $21! I added valances to the top to hide the roll.

Cord Wind Up - And cords that toddlers or new crawlers can reach may be a hazard, curious kiddos can definitely be strong enough to pull down blinds onto themselves.
