They changed our unhappy, makeshift paper blinds with some stylish new blinds, full with blackout shades. This was a dream come true for Jane–good lighting makes all of the distinction in whether or not or not a photograph seems! We put in the blinds in all of the basement rooms–Jane and Jenny’s workplace, the principle crafting area, and the delivery room. Blinds are one thing that should be useful in addition to fairly, and we liked how our blinds turned out.
