This distressed white cane has the perfect spot for a little springy bling...
We hung it up using these fun clips...super easy!
Our livingroom has lots of windows...my in-laws found a stash of these spindles and scooped them up for me.  Simple but interesting, I think.
This chippy hook rack makes a great treatment in my bathroom and is the perfect display spot for my junky jewels.
This old screen was the perfect fit in my guest bedroom.  At first that imperfection bothered me but now I am embracing it ;)
Love these hinges...
You might remember this garden fence treatment from a previous post.  I think this was the idea that got me thinking...

The windows at my house have been "naked" for a while now.  I like the clean look of bamboo shades but have been trying to add a unique junky twist here and there.  Let me know what you think...

PS...I have a couple more "treats" in my mind but haven't been able to find all the right pieces to complete them...so I may have to add "Part 2" post when they finally all come together :)

JunkArchitect writes: Laurel, what a bunch of inspiring ideas. I think my favorite is the garden fence, although the screen is really cool. I was trying to come up with a new valance type window treatment but what I welded together weights more than the ENTIRE wall.


p.s. I'm not sure why my previous comment deleted all but the first two words.

artteachergirl writes: Love every one of your ideas!!! Think I like the spindles best...so simple, but makes such impact. I have so many canes I've collected...might steal that idea from you. I use them as art right now, but as a window treatment it is so unexpected, might have to try it. Posted: 10:02 pm on September 24th
CottageElements writes: Laurel, very creative window treatments. But I agree with Rusty Diva, my favorite has to be the screen with the hinges. I do love the cane, though. Amy purchased a whole sleugh of them at Elko and I guess they're barker's canes from a carnival. That makes it even better!

RustyDiva writes: Love your ideas Laurel but I think my fave (besides the garden fence) is the screen. Reminds me of a transom window above an old door. I love your thinking out of the box for window treatments! Can't wait for part deux. Posted: 10:40 am on September 24th
