Library Journal Review

Both functional and decorative, window treatments dress up a room. Revised from the 2006 edition, this volume features about 30 more treatment styles. There is more depth to the instructions, and the inspirational photos have been updated. Fabric recommendations and materials lists introduce each style of window treatment, with clear, step-by-step instructions. Organization is consistent and well thought out, making this an easy manual to follow. With a wealth of updates, excellent tips, and great instructions, this edition is highly recommended.
