1. Bedazzled curtain: Add sparkle to your room with a curtain of beads. This simple but dazzling design has just the right extra something to finish bare windows where privacy isn’t needed. You can either purchase this beaded curtain or make your own using fishing line and beads from a notions store.
  2. Tree branch curtain rod: Bring home a branch from the woods and hang a curtain on it. Utilizing nature can help you save money and add a rustic element to ground your room. Spray paint the branch in a coordinating or contrasting color for extra flair.
  3. Pennant valance: Use this look in a sport-loving child’s room or the family room. Collect all of your or your family’s favorite sports teams’ pennants and hang them over the window as a decorative valance.
  4. Asymmetrical wood sculpture: Find something you really love at a flea market or from your travels and display it above the window as a valance. Choose materials or items that make sense with your home’s color and material palette.
  5. Frosted vinyl: Apply frosted vinyl to any window in a room that needs both privacy and light.
  6. Carved wood panels: Custom made or found vintage, these can be installed in front of your windows for sturdy, decorative window treatments. Hang wood panels on rods with wheels to move them away from the windows when you don’t need privacy.
