Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Making windows very pretty and hard to see through
I've recently moved into a new one bedroom apartment that I like quite a bit, but its lacking one important detail: No blinds, no drapes, no curtains, no nothing on the windows. I have two windows with enough exposure that I feel the need to have some way to cover them, and I'd like something cheap and, ideally, nice looking (blinds are functional but awfully ugly). I'm not above using second-hand equipment or a bit of improvisation, but I'm no tailor and anything more complicated than "screw this thing in here, hang that thing there" is probably going to be lost on me.
Ideally options that don't put much stress on the apartment or walls would be nice, I doubt the owners would have trouble with me adding to their apartment, but that doesn't mean they want me to tear apart the walls to do it.
Any advice for ways to cover up some windows on the cheap?
