    Default Blackout shades

    Any idea where to get some blackout shades for funky shaped windows? Our windows are rectangular, really long (80"). Seems like everywhere I've looked has 36", 48", or 60-something.

    Help!

    Make your own! You can buy blackout lining at Fabricland, just sew it onto whatever curtains you have now, or buy fabric and make your own blackout curtains. Super easy!

    If you go to the Fabricland on Wonderland, you go to the cutting counter that is in the drapery section and all the blackout lining is under that counter. Comes in white or ivory.

    My Mom sewed blackout lining from Fabricland on to the back of the bedroom curtains.

    The cheapo white curtains I have in my room, if does not block the light 100%.

    Kids room, it's pretty good. But their curtains are a bit thicker.
    Stop thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises. Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.
