3 Day Blinds Donates $40,000 in Product to Habitat for Humanity

Here at 3 Day Blinds not only do we love providing excellent customer service and great window treatments  we also love giving to excellent causes. Recently, we had an opportunity to donate $40,000 worth of product to Habitat for Humanity and more specifically the Habitat for Humanity ReStore program.

For those who might not be familiar with the ReStore program, they are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price. Proceeds are used to build homes, community, and hope locally and around the world.

3 Day Blinds tries to work with non-profit organizations and community partners when we are able. We are so excited to be able to join in such a great cause and something that we feel resonated with us, because we are in the business of helping people turn their house into a home with our custom window treatments, that warm up any space. We are fortunate enough to be able to support the communities that have helped build our business over the last 37 years.

3 Day Blinds continually looks for opportunities to give to excellent organizations like Habitat for Humanity and we seek out those organizations whose passion matches our own. We look for partners who share our vision of being One Team and in doing so hope that we can have a lasting effect. 3 Day Blinds works hard to achieve this vision both inside and outside of the business.

With Two Colors of the Year, Picking just One Won’t be Easy!

If you have designs on upgrading your home interior in the coming year, in the past you could count on having fun with Pantone’s Color of the Year. However, this year the color experts from Pantone, long considered the global authority on color research, have made things especially interesting by naming not one, but two colors for their annual honor. This means DIY and even professional designers will now have to choose between…drum roll please…Rose Quartz and Serenity, if they want to stay current with what’s trending in color.

Rose Quartz   Serenity

With Serenity, a kind of baby blue, and Rose Quartz, a dusty pink, Pantone has chosen colors it feels best represent “a symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.”  So now you have to ask yourself, “Which color do I use to “re-boot” my home?”  Before anyone stresses about this color challenge, just know that these two colors are so beautiful, you really can’t go wrong with either one. Just imagine Rose Quartz, a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure, adorning your master bedroom with accent pillows and a striking floral arrangement. Or, try recovering that sofa or love seat with a polished cotton of Rose Quartz, providing a key design element that invites other décor items to play along with.

If you’re attracted to the cooler, tranquil blues, your decision is easy, because Serenity fits the bill. It’s weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky, and captures feelings of respite and relaxation. To amplify a mood with either of these two colors, you should consider upgrading your window coverings. Since windows offer such a natural canvas for expressing color, you can add other interior design elements that harmonize with either Rose Quartz or Serenity. Regardless of which color you choose to elevate your home, both reflect a connection to wellness and a soothing sense of order and peace. And in today’s often hectic, “crazy busy” society, who doesn’t need a dose of Zen-like relaxation, right!

For Expert Advice, Why Not Partner with an Expert?  3 Day Blinds!

Whether you’re considering Rose Quartz, Serenity, or any other color for your custom window treatments, tackling the measuring and design process for new window coverings on your own can be daunting, at best. At 3 Day Blinds you not only enjoy an array of design and style options, you also receive expert advice and guidance from a highly trained Design Consultant, which by itself is a significant value. You’ll appreciate their attention to detail and the personalized experience of partnering with a true design specialist. From measuring, to ordering, delivery, and installation, your 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant is committed to your complete satisfaction. Call today for your complimentary in-home design consultation and see why we love to say, “you’ll love the treatment”!

3 Day Blinds Joins The Cousins and Others to Rebuild School Library

Earlier this year the students and faculty at Mary Buren Elementary School in Guadalupe, California lost their cherished library due to severe flooding and had no way to rebuild it.

In a heart-warming act, Ellen DeGeneres, in conjunction with Anthony Carrino & John Colaneri (The Cousins), 3 Day Blinds and other companies came together to help this school rebuild what was tragically taken from them. The students at Mary Buren Elementary School have a hunger for books and a thirst for knowledge and this act of kindness helps to satiate their appetites for both.

Mary Buren Elementary School is located in a low-income farming community and as such wouldn’t have been able to afford the cost of the renovations. With the library restoration project completed these students are ecstatic at the thought of being able to have a great place to read and learn. Knowing that both the faculty and the student body will enjoy the library really brings us an immense amount of joy.

3 Day Blinds donated Roller Shade window treatments for all of the library’s windows. These treatments are great for controlling the amount of light in any given room and help create ideal study conditions for students and adults alike.

We at 3 Day Blinds feel honored to be a part of helping such a noble cause. We would like to thank The Cousins and their wonderful team and hope that we can work together again in the future to help with other causes.

You can watch the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” on December 7, 2015. Check your local listings for time and channel.

3 Day Blinds and Casa Teresa Partner in Charity Drive to Aid Young Women

Helping those in need, especially this time of year, has always come naturally to 3 Day Blinds. To continue this welcome tradition, this fall the company is partnering with Casa Teresa, a non-profit organization that provides a temporary home and on-going support for women in need of assistance. For their part, 3 Day Blinds is asking every employee at the company to get a gently used purse, either their own or from their wife, mother or friend, and fill it with essentials such as a tooth brush, tooth paste, hair brush, lip balm , wipes, sanitizer, hair ties, and other like items. The purse and items inside will be donated to Casa Teresa and distributed to women in need- those who have perhaps been battered and had to flee their homes, or are homeless due to other unforeseen circumstances.

3 Day Blinds is inviting all of those who wish to participate in this charity can obtain a gently used purse or the personal items listed above for donation. The company has also established an email for those seeking a direct response to questions, at: givingback@3day.com.

In past years, 3 Day Blinds has partnered with other organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, in an ongoing effort to give back to the community and help those in need. To help ensure the success of this charity drive, the company is encouraging those who wish to participate to make their donation of essential items before Thanksgiving.

3 Day Blinds Lands Supporting Role in Hit Show “Home Made Simple”

With a list of highly successful TV programming over the years, OWN continues to provide high caliber, quality viewing to their target audience season after season.

 

As the brainchild of Oprah Winfrey, the network, which launched in 2011, reaches more than 80 million households, roughly 70% of the United States. Over the years, the network has featured popular programming that includes “Dr. Phil”, “Rachel Ray”, and “The Nate Berkus Show”. In addition to popular daytime talk show programming, dramatic shows have included those produced and introduced by Tyler Perry. These include “The Haves and the Have Nots”, and the original comedy, “Love Thy Neighbor”.

 

3 Day Blinds has enjoyed  tremendous exposure from television partnerships in the past that include products featured in Spike TV’s long running original series, “Catch A Contractor” starring master carpenter Adam Carolla, and A&E’s award-winning series, “Sell This House: Extreme”.  Be sure to tune in this month and watch “Home Made Simple” to stay current with the latest styles and trends in custom window fashions from 3 Day Blinds.

Window Treatments: The Latest Scare Tactics for an even Spookier Halloween.

Looking for a way to add more scary fun to your home for Halloween? Then why not look to your windows, where there’s plenty of space for creating haunting effects for both inside and outside your home. From window clings and silhouettes, to creepy crawly curtains, your imagination is the key to unlocking a venerable dungeon of spooky looks! Plus, once you invest some creativity and a little time, over the years you’ll assemble a collection of stunning Halloween window decorations that are reusable over and over again. And with the affordability of most craft supplies, it’s surprisingly easy and economical to create the perfect look and vibe that will be popular for both family and friends during the Halloween season.

 Black Cats, Witches, and Ghosts. They’re all invited!

Even if you don’t have lots of time, a little online research and shopping will yield an array of fun and spook-worthy options from which to choose from. There’s always that symbolic jet black cat, available as a window cling, silhouette, or in fine-gauge lace. Or why not feature the wicked witch, also in convenient cling or silhouette treatments. Ghosts, goblins, witches and just about any and all of your favorite Halloween “spookies” are easily created for windows by simply downloading a template online, printing it out, and then calculating the size you want. Using your template, you can easily sketch out and then cut a silhouette to fit almost any window size. Detailed instructions are easily available online using a few simple keywords, such as “Halloween window templates” or Halloween window silhouettes”.

 Creepy Clings that are ready to hang, and more.

Festive Jack o’ Lanterns and such that are “hang ready” make Halloween a snap if you go with a window cling. This popular material comes in a great selection of classic Halloween characters, including spiders, webs, skeletons, witches, and ghosts, among others. Clings are easy to apply and remove, and the graphic quality is highly professional.  Another great idea is setting up a video projection for your window. All you need is a bright harsh light, a cape with a fedora hat and you can stand, maybe holding a knife, in front of the sheet with the light behind you and sway back and forth. All they see outside is the shadow. This makes a great Halloween site for greeting trick or treaters!

 Horror “Reborns” are the Rage.

You can also take advantage of the current rage in zombie dolls. What’s scarier than a doll? A wide-eyed, open-mouthed baby doll.  And what’s even more terrifying than that baby doll? One that’s deliberately been taken apart, painted, and “all dolled up” into a vampire, zombie or even a werewolf, and placing them in your window, either hanging from a rope or having them sit on a window sill. If you haven’t heard of reborn dolls, you’re late to the game: refurbishing factory-made dolls is a 15-year-old phenomenon. Today, there are kits specifically designed for “reborn artists” to craft their own realistic babies and toddlers. But about five years ago, an entirely new subcategory arrived on the “reborn doll” scene – horror reborns. Although creating these spooky, realistic creatures is more time consuming, you can make these yourself or purchase them as well. To make your own, simply do some online searching using the key phrase, “how to create reborn horror dolls”.

As you can see, there’s no limit to what you can do with windows to amplify the sights of Halloween. All you need is a little time and imagination to create window decorations the whole neighborhood will be talking about!
