I have finally begun the spring clean of the Crooked Household. This year, as I make my way around the house, I will be fixing our vertical blinds.
Our blinds are a few years old now so they have the chain link bottoms.
I am not the biggest fan of vertical blinds, especially these chains on the bottom. They get caught up, twisted, knocked off and deteriorate with sun exposure. My 9 month old has broken quite a few of the clips that connect the chains to the blinds, leaving the chains to sit on the ground. This was becoming a little messy and somewhat dangerous with a crawling baby in the house.
As the blinds are near perfect, except for a few sections of broken chain, I couldn’t justify replacing the blinds. Doing a little bit of internet research, I came across a company online that sold bulk packs of vertical blind weights without the chain. They were a bargain.
It has been easy to replace the chain weights with the linkless weights and now I no longer need to deal with those ugly, annoying chains.
The blinds are now less messy, sit in a streamlined fashion and are no longer attracting a 9 month old for play time. Well worth the small investment of time and money.
