JP’s Nursery – The story about the curtains

The window seat look was meant to be functional. It provides storage, a prop for the baby camera, a comfy spot to sit, and a means of controlling light in the room. The Hunter Douglas shades on the windows allows most of the light in. But in the early AM through most of the day, it is too bright to stay asleep. We also needed room darkening curtains.

April 26, 2015 – Installed 4 Panels of curtains to properly cover the nursery window.

 

We found the perfect room darkening curtains for our needs at Bed Bath and Beyond. As it turned out we had a store credit that covered all the curtains and then some, so it was also a “free project.”

On Saturday afternoon JP visited Nana & Nani to allow us time to purchase and install the curtains. At the end of Saturday night, we were happy with the results, but it appeared that the curtains did not cover the full length of the windows. So on Sunday we purchase and installed two more panels for a total of 4 panels to get the appropriate window coverage and room darkening.

 

After spending some time shopping the internet to find room darkening curtains that in a navy or other dark blue. We The Majestic Blackout curtain panels at Bed Bath and Beyond were perfect.
