I had a small problem with my garage window, it was see through-imagine that! All my junk was exposed to the neighborhood. Well I'm sure there are some obvious solutions to this problem, right?
My solution to this situation- a shower curtain. It was opaque enough to not let people see in, but sheer enough to let in light in my dark garage during the day, sort of durable, something I don't have to worry about getting dirty and cheap.
See that bar hanging down? It is an old curtain rod hanging in the middle of the window! I wanted to reuse the bar so I didn't have to buy a new one, no problem- I'll just unscrew it and use the hardware! Well, it seems they were nailed on instead of screwed on-one blood blister later I got it out-anything to save a buck! So after I cleaned it off because spiders had been partying on it for a few years it was good as new.
Finally, after doing battle with spiders and their webs and the broom and fan and all other sorts of junk- it looks so much better!
It even cleans up the inside of the garage too- well sort of!
