Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe small, basement-size windows are given a special faux treatment to make them look longer.
First, a square is taped off underneath the window and then painted blue. Next, molding is hung around the window and the blue square. Grids are nailed inside the square to help create the illusion of a large window. Cornice boxes are covered in fabric and then adorned with upholstery tacks. White sheer panels are hung underneath the cornices, then curtains made from the same fabric as the cornice boxes are swagged to one side. A rolled-up 98-cent remnant of bullion trim on the tie-back adds an inexpensive finishing touch.

Faux windows – $35, cornices – $19 and curtains – $62
