Basement Window Shade

The window in the “living” space of our basement looks directly onto the street and a casual passerby at night can see in pretty well with the sheers put up by the previous owner. This didn’t matter when the view in was obstructed with countless shelves and boxes, but now I kind of feel like I’m in a fish bowl.

We happened to have two beautiful matchstick blinds from a friend who no longer wanted them. They didn’t fit our windows upstairs and I was going to convert them but never got around to it. They fit perfectly down here! What I love most is that they can hang longer to create the “illusion” of a taller window at night, and provide better privacy. It makes me want to frame out the window better and do some real construction down here!
