and polishers he had was nothing short of miraculous either. I always wondered where he got the equipment he had and I just found a great source today! I think I'm feeling a re-kindling of my love for rocks building up inside. I know I've found some really interesting pieces just on my own property--now I'm beginning to wonder what they'd look like if they were properly prepared.
Here's a picture of the blinds open, it was kind of difficult in the lighting with the sun coming in.
And then here's a picture of them closed:
Here's a close-up of the molding:
And the pictures really don't do them justice at all. I couldn't take my eyes off of them all day yesterday! They add such a pleasant touch. Ordering the blinds was quick and easy with the detailed online order form at Blinds Chalet. They had so many styles to choose from that I had difficulty at first deciding, but went with the faux wood style. My picture window is so large (72") that I felt the small slats on standard aluminum or pvc type blinds would look out of place. The faux wood blinds have a thicker slat that has a lot of substance, and that is 2" wide.
I already have blinds in all of my other windows, but they are just the standard aluminum and I am so hooked on the molding aspect of these blinds that I'm planning on replacing many of the existing blinds in other rooms, especially the family room, and kitchen.
I was worried about the living room blinds but I couldn't be more pleased if I were twins. They are fantastic, and the Blinds Chalet folks were fabulous to work with. Check them out if you are considering blinds of any style for your home. You'll be amazed at the many varieties of blinds and window coverings available.
