Nighttime Nursery Drapery Liner by W.C. Redmon
You’ve thought about it. Every parent has. If you could just align the heavens into a solar eclipse, maybe your little munchkin would take longer naps or even sleep later in the morning. The problem? You are not God, and standard curtains allow a ton of sunlight to seep through the fabric.
Here’s a solution. The Nighttime Nursery Drapery Liner by W.C. Redmon is designed to block out window light. Its two panels hang behind your existing curtains. Alternately, you can decorate these plain white drapes with paint, stamps or stencils.
My old dorm room had something similar. College kids are a lot like newborns. They sleep all the time. And let me tell you, it’s great to have afternoon sun streaming into your window, then close your curtains and be in near darkness.
I wish I’d known about the nursery drapes before Little Miss was born. We managed a makeshift solution by hanging a couple thick blankets over her window. Some light seeped around the edges, but the room was still terribly dark.
We now have thermal curtains using material Mom sewed onto the back of our existing curtains. A nice quality of thermal padding (aside from keeping rooms warm) is that it also blocks light.
