how to hide or replace vertical blinds

Decor, DIY, Organization

I’m not a fan of vertical blinds and they were everywhere in my LA apartment. So I came up with a few easy ways to either hide them or replace them with curtains using the existing hardware! One of the things I used are these drapery hooks to switch out the slats for curtains. It was very inexpensive and quick to do and it gave a more custom personal touch to my apartment which is so much better than the original vertical blinds!

  7. Hi Isabelle, I liked your video on using the No No bracket. I just wish there was a way to hang my kitchen curtain over the vertical blinds head rail without having to use curtains with grommets. So I guess my plan will be to make curtains and add the grommets.
