Easy Curtain Ideas Blog

The easycurtainideas Blog lets you know where there is something new happening on the site. Such as.....

  • When there are new webpages about new curtain ideas, or new "how to make and hang curtain" articles.
  • Also the latest additions to the "Questions and Answers" page. You can ask your own curtain question right here.
  • Sometimes I just feel an older really important article is not getting the attention it deserves. So I show it off again here so you can catch it second time around.
  • It lets you know when I send out the easycurtainideas e-zine (in case you don't like to give your e-mail address, or if your ISP tends to over-filter causing you to miss an issue).

What Visitors Say

"Dear Lee, Just wanted to say I found your site last week and it was an absolute godsend. Most helpful and informative - easy to follow instructions - and my very first bay window pelmet looks like the work of a true (and expensive) professional!

The pelmet and curtains both look much better in real life than on the photo of course. My wife thinks it all looks the work of a real pro rather than a first time amateur! Many many thanks for your site.

Kind regards Neal"
