I knew I wanted some privacy drapes for our back door, but the first green one I grabbed from Wal-Mart just didn't cut it. I spent $10 for 2, but when it got dark, the kitchen was still pretty visible from the outside.
One day, we were roaming around in another Wal-Mart and since it was being renovated, they had all kinds of stuff on clearance! Even some of the draperies! I came across this one and it was normally $10, marked down to $3.50! I took it immediately and hoped for another one. No such luck!
As it turned out, I didn't need it! After trying it out the first night, I couldn't see anything clear enough from the outside! So I immediately returned the first two I used and got my money back.
I POUNCED on a great deal. I REALIZED its extra potential (backdoor was not the original spot it was intended for). I ALLOWED for flexibility. I thought of colors for both Feng Shui and the YELLOW that was already in the kitchen. I SOLVED a problem with extra money in my pocket!
With the summer heat, the red actually is dark enough to help cool the kitchen. Awesome!
