I took a close-up picture of his handiwork.
We decided that, instead of getting new blinds, we would get one of those adhesive panels that you can't see through, but which would let the light in. We found one at Home Depot. They didn't have too many designs that were the right dimensions for panel windows, but there was one that was simple and looked like frosted glass, so we decided to try it out. It cost about $40.
When we started trying to take the blinds off, we were confronted with this and had no idea how to take the blinds off.
Finally I did what I usually do when I can't figure something out - brute force (for the record, I am not recommending this approach to anyone). I pulled down the plastic part at the top, and then my husband figured out how to open up the little clasps and the blinds just fell off. Yay! Goodbye, ugly blinds!
So much better than ugly, old, dog-chewed blinds. We get lots of light through the window now, but you still can't see through it. Perfect!
