Hawaiian fabric curtains on my office window

| No Comments

I installed the curtain rod and hung up my curtains today!

Photos are:

(1) Window with posters taped to the glass.
(2) Window with my new Hawaiian fabric curtains!
(3) Close-up of the curtains.

Size: 4 panels (2 on each side) at 42 inches x 51 inches each.

The area above the curtain rod is larger than the area above the posters so more natural light flows into my office, but not into my eyes when I'm sitting at my desk.

In addition to being a more attractive way to block light, the curtains prevent students from peeking at me - and keep me from being distracted by people moving back and forth across the window and combing their hair or picking their teeth or straightening their clothes... I can also now look outside when I hear something going on in the quad (such as a concert or a fight).
