back door: before & after
above the stairs: before (ugly, boring and too long white shade) & after (taken at night, but it does let light into the basement - I like that. That was the only good thing about the old shade)
there is no before for this window, but it had only the white blinds that are still there. I like this curtain because I can open it to let in light, or close it (which it's been most of the summer) to keep out the heat. The stairs are MUCH cooler this year than they were last year. Yay!
