The Curse of Vertical Blinds – And How To Get Around Them

spotlight

I hate vertical blinds.  I always have.  But since I’m stuck with them, I had to figure out an affordable way to get around them without removing the blinds and still be able to return them back to normal, if needed.

 

Although I really wanted drapes or curtains, I knew my psycho cat, Pepper, would rip them to shreds so I settled on a valance, which is just out of his reach (on a good day, anyway).

 

Curtain Bracket Extender Vertical Blind

 

I found these wonderful brackets that extend past the existing vertical blinds hardware and slats for $10.60 on Amazon.

I purchased these, along with a heavy duty curtain rod ($4.69, Amazon) and easily attached them to the wall.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I then hung the valance and voila!  I still have vertical blinds but they somehow don’t bother me quite as much! And if you don’t have a psycho cat like Pepper, it can easily be done with curtains, as well.
