Any ideas for these windows?
 
3 Attachment(s)

Hi,

I have windows that I'm finding hard to figure out how to treat - I don't think there is enough depth on the inside to mount shades/blinds, but then an outside mount would be tricky because there is a small ledge directly above the window frame. Also, the two outside windows are placed directly next to the wall, so there is no room to mount on the sides. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey guys - thanks for all the suggestions, this type of project overwhelms me to the point where I just shut down. So, I waited until my sister came to town and she figured it out. Everything is Ikea and the whole thing cost under $250 - I'm so happy to have it done once and for all. I still have to hem the drapes, but that won't be too hard.

Yeah, that cooling/heating thing is a monstrosity and I don't even really use it except for on really hot days. Mostly it is used for my cat to hang out on and look out the window - I have to keep the blinds up halfway because he likes to watch the sunrise!
