    Promising review: "These semi-sheer panels are fantastic. I wanted the light to filter in during the day or to have them completely open on cloudier days, and at night, I wanted to filter out the clear view inside from the street. From outside at night, there is a warm glow, you can make out shadows from inside but still have privacy. The price is right, and the casual feel is on point. They are not the clearly recognizable polyester ones you used to see all the time; they have a softer, billowy feel to them. I have only had them a week, so I cannot comment on how they will hold up in the washer." —KHogan
