    So I guess this was fixed?

    The orange curtains are almost a match to the wallpaper I put in my kitchen in 1974 LOL.

    I was going to vote for the Ugly Sheet, but hope the Ugly Sheet is only a temporary fix. I voted for the Orange Crush because it appears to be a permanent solution for the home. The “good enough” attitude. How sad. Although in the Brocade photo . . . the lonely hanging sparkly belt is such a great wall accessory. Tempting . . .

    felixthecat awakens from his slumber, stretches, and is bemused: “We can comment again?!?” Then he sees the Orange Curtains and wishes that he had remained asleep, or had even died.

    The orange curtain room is just sad. Everything in the room looks to be from about 1968. The clock, the organ, the swag lamp, the sewing machine on the floor…. This room is in a time warp.

    I’m a kook because I like those 1960’s flower power curtains! 🙂

    Ok, I’ll admit. I love the flower power curtains and the hanging lamp.

    The ugly sheet curtain house could be a meth lab. They like to use sheets and blankets as window coverings.

    Come on! Some cheapo curtains at walmart will cost you almost nothing and you can have a bit more style than the sheet! I grew up seeing sheets on windows, but I always hated it.
