Have a Lonely Window That Needs Some TLC?

Over the course of the last week I have been hinting at a Huge Giveaway coming your way.. (well maybe a little more than hinting).
Well, today is the day! My first ever giveaway!

Updated Jan 25: and the Winner is... Lori Magelky - > "Anyone else like to run naked through their house but can't because they have a "naked" window."

For those of you who have not yet heard of The Curtain Exchange, today's post is for you - so please, pay attention.
The Curtain Exchange is a Dallas, TX headquartered company with 19 locally owned store franchise locations in 14 states in the USA. They are a resource for both consumers and designers seeking out the finest quality, fully lined and interlined ready made window treatments available today. In addition, The Curtain Exchange is a great resource for fully customized window treatments made by their skilled seamstresses in New Orleans, Louisiana.

They have over 800 up to date, beautiful fabrics to choose from (although they don't accept C.O.M ) and, for designers who are working with clients on a budget or who are in a time crunch since all curtains are stocked and can be delivered quickly, they are a great resource.

Over 800 fabrics!!

Here are just a few that I picked out as my favorites, by Color!

Of course they will offer a complete package:
They also sell hardware, bedding, woven shades and their experienced and professional installers can come and measure and install your new window treatments for you. Their products are not sold online and are available exclusively through their 19 store locations.

Plus, they offer a 48 hour return policy which insures that you can take the window treatments you choose ( or have them shipped out ) to view the fabric in different light conditions, make sure they're right for you and, as long as they're back to them in 48 hours, you can't make a mistake.

The Curtain Exchange 's ready made window treatments are very different from what you might see in ready made options in other stores given the quality of their lining and interlining, their fabric choices and their fullness.
A store locator can be found on their website at http://thecurtainexchange.com.


Then can your cameras ready, and play to win

Final Note for Winner:
As you may realize, the cost of the fabric, lining and interlining for beautifully made curtains is always the most expensive piece of new window treatments so I'm very grateful to The Curtain Exchange locations for their generosity in providing my readers with this special giveaway.Please be aware, however, that if you're the winner, the hardware and having your windows measured and the window treatments installed would be your financial responsibility.
