DIY :: Lighted Mirrored Garland :: Small mirror tiles glued to fishing line with lights behind... This is actually a really nice/interesting idea for an extra light fixture slash artsy wall hanging. People are so creative!
To get rid of the light that comes through the sides of your curtains, slip one of the curtain ring clips onto the rod bracket. No more side light! Also good when using thermal-backed curtains to help stop drafts.
