It’s as if the sellers tried to copy new model home decorations.  All the signs come across as overkill.

Uneven knotted curtains are worse.

What’s the point?  The knotted curtains block your view.  And if you open them at night for privacy, why isn’t there a curtain over the door’s window?

A pair of scissors, please, so we can cut off the excess fabric and save our eyes from the knots.

Why knot up the curtains?  Why knot not let the drapes hang down on the sides of the windows?

There’s more fabric in the knot than in the rest of the curtain!  Why buy such big curtains for a small window?

Triple knotted?  Ridiculous.

What Knot To Do

July 28th, 2014 · 7 Comments

Those dreaded knotted curtains are back.  And they’re badder, er, worse than ever.

Here they are from a different angle.

Knotted curtains are like a virus.  They spread to other windows in a house.  Notice the sloppy paint line at the ceiling.

We don’t luv knotted curtains.
