My mini blinds in my hallway broke the other weekend! And, like any typical boat related breakage, there's no easy fix because it is 1 of 4 total matching blinds in the hallway, so if 1 is replaced, it's going to stick out like a sore thumb. I tried to fix the blinds myself to no avail. Next, I searched for a professional to fix them; again no success. In typical expensive fashion, I succumbed to the inevitable and bought 4 new sets of blinds. Never a dull moment!
