It was a horse pasture. Complete with old run down sheds and a couple of barn cats and yes, HORSES. I could go out anytime and smell the air and feed the steeds a few carrots. It was heaven.
And to top it off, the houses built there were supposedly not supposed to be more than half of them ramblers. That means that we wouldn't lose our mountain views. RIGHT. Next door to me, instead of the green horse pasture with horses? A 3 story house that has windows that look right down into my walk in closet.
I fumed, I complained. I shopped for curtains or something. Film? Curtains, black out blinds? Or just learn to dress on my hands and knees...bah. The above is just half of the window.
So I came upon my solution one day while browsing in Target.
A HA! I bought these pieces of sea glass in a warm blue color. I came home and found a cracked piece of thin plexiglass. I cut it the same size as the 2 windows. Out came my hot glue gun and I worked away piecing little uneven pieces. I finished it and set it into the space and yes... it works!
Well, then again, I still miss the horses....
