In my living room, I have a rather large set of sliding doors that go outside to the deck. I love how they let in a lot of light…when I want it. Usually, not first thing in the morning when I’m walking around in my undies.
Due to the larger than standard width size, I’ve never been able to hang two curtain panels and be done with it; a third panel in the middle has always been needed. However, that pesky third panel has always been a pain in my arse.
I’ve tried pulling the middle panel to the tie back on the right, but it never really looks very nice. There’s usually a big gap or just too much fabric to look the way I want. I’ve tried tying a fabric ribbon around the middle panel, as well. While pretty, it wasn’t very functional on a daily basis.
Over the last week or so, I’ve wanted the door open to let in some cool fresh air. On a whim, I tied the panel in a knot and then untied it before bed. I did it again this weekend and realized the ease was working for me. However, I’m pretty sure I’m white trash for settling on this option (wouldn’t be the first time).
So here’s my question, what would YOU do with the pesky middle curtain panel???
Please avert your eyes to the random crap on the balcony. I’m working on a DIY project and need to take those two pieces of luggage to the garage. ; )
