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!

    where do we get the plastic clips for dowel wood which you have. I’m planning to work on it.

    Thanks

      I didn’t buy them, they are part of the hanging hardware that was already installed.

    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.
    Thank.
