Book Review
The dressing on a room's windows can mean the difference between a decorating scheme that doesn't quite work or one that is truly successful. But custom-made window treatments can be terribly expensive, and many do-it-yourselfers are afraid to tackle anything more complicated than a hemmed rectangle of fabric stuck on a pole.
