A simple, "semi"-DIY window treatment. Add layer and texture with bamboo blinds, without spending a lot of money! // Craftivity Designs omg so glad I read this! The difference is seriously night and day.
Mount the blinds higher on the window. Then used a little board between to make the middle trim appear to go all the way up and therefore the window looks taller. When totally open the whole window is open and all the light comes in.
