I was so happy I found this cheap and easy curtain solution for our privacy needs on the patio. Our neighbors have dogs that will bark if they can see us, and it gets a little troublesome at times. These curtains have worked out perfectly because when the doggies next door can’t see us, they are as quiet as little mice. The curtains look great as well, they are super rustic and boho looking, which I love.
