"Love this cute chic little "shade"! This covers an odd little window that we stack wood under in the winter for our wood stove. At first I was going to return it b/c I wasn't sure how to tie it exactly, and honestly it just looked weird. Then I played around with it for a while and even used some indiscreet pins to make it perfect and now I love it. It will look best if you don't bunch it up (like a regular valance), but let it hang more like a shade. Hope that makes sense : )"
