One of the blinds had a broken cord, which I had to tie string to so I could get it to work. I was having a party & needed to hang them, so I couldn't return them. Plus, my husband already attached the hardware to the window. The other blind had the cord, but it didn't work to pull up the blind. They are hanging up, but just resting on the bottom windowsill - they can't be adjusted. I was very disappointed and will not order from Overstock again.
Although I love the pattern of the blinds, the safety (child-proof) hooks can be a pain. They are very sensitive when rolling the blinds up and down, and if you don't secure the hooks, you can't roll the blinds up or down. It definitely, I guess, would be great if you have children around, but, as I said, it can be an inconvenience. I definitely do like the look though.
I put these shades in a room with same paint colors (grey / white) as the room pictured. The black trim really makes them pop. I did the outside mount. Instructions said 15 minutes to mount - an underestimate for sure, but I'm happy with the product.
Although I like the appearance of this blind and the install was relatively simple, I cannot get the blind to settle in an even fashion. Additionally, the safety feature of the cords while safe, it slips apart very easily and needs constaat Idjustment. Knowing what I know I probably would not purchase again.
The blinds won't last long, that is, if they don't break while hanging them. Unfortunately, this is one of those cases that portrays and excellent picture, but not realistic. I'm very disappointed, partly because I have to go to the trouble of returning them.
