Eclipse Curtains – Reduce Light & Noise for Better Sleep

We received a set of Eclipse Curtains in exchange for our honest review. All opinions, as always, are 100% our own. Enter disclaimer text

When you have a house full of kids who are totally the younger sister from a certain movie about ice and sisterly love and they believe if the sun is up they are up…having reduced light and noise is a true blessing. The twins had been struggling with Daylight Savings Time when our package from Eclipse Curtains arrived with blackout panels for their room. Call it an early birthday present for dad and mom, these beauties have made a difference!

Eclipse Curtains – Reduce Light & Noise for Better Sleep

Do you kids struggle to stay asleep like mine do? I know there is just so much in this world to conquer, but ‘lil ones need rest to do all that day-slaying, amiright? Eclipse Curtains with blackout and noise-reducing capabilities are one way you can help keep your kids sleeping better through the night…meaning mom and dad are sleeping better, too!

Eclipse Curtains offers four different levels of opacity, based on your needs. This mom of four is all about the black out (blocks 98-99.9% of light and considerably reduces noise) and absolute zero (blocks 100% of light and maximizes noise reduction) options. I’ve been trying really hard to get seven hours of sleep a night, so I want all the light and noise reduction I can get!

With a kid-friendly line, Eclipse Curtains makes it easy for parents to sneak in the extra sleep magic. We got to try out the Pretty Princess panels in the twins room. This took them from two windows like this…

…to two windows like this (both photos were taken on the same day in the same room on the same window, 2 minutes apart)…

Aren’t they super adorable? I love that these curtains have a function but also an element fun. Ava and Isla LOVE counting their castles, unicorns, and carriages before naptime. As soon as we can get more furniture in the room (Ava is way too daring), I hope to pull the whole princess theme together for them as we transition from nursery to kid room.

You can see the amount of light when pulled that they really do make a difference!

Eclipse Curtains – Where to Buy

If you are interested in purchasing your own Eclipse Curtains, they are available at many major retailers including Target (check out the Pretty Princess curtains we received) and Amazon (like these super sophisticated ones for your older kiddos). The kids’ line panels range from $5.79 to $23.99.

Their website is full of all the technical details and even inspiration as you look to change up the decor of your home. Follow Eclipse Curtains on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest for even more ideas.

How appropriate is it that I am off on my girls’ week full of crafting, relaxing, and spending time with my friends (including one of my favorite Pittsburgh photographers) and I’m stopping in to give one of YOU a chance to get your creative on?!??! Highly coordinated, as I do. 😉 But no, seriously. I’m super excited to tell you all about CanvasPop and how they helped me get our first real family of six photo up on our walls.

Ok, first some life rules. All of you have to promise me this in life:

  • Take pictures. Lots of pictures. Even when you feel sick, gross, or (yes) even fat. Because you don’t look like you think. Take this photo, for instance. One of my favorites, taken a year ago when I was fresh home from a night at the ER.

  • Share your pictures.
  • Print said pictures. Don’t let them just sit on your computer, phone, or camera.
  • Hang up said printed pictures. Enjoy them. Create a wall of photos that makes you smile.

So now, the part I am most excited about. Our first family of six photo now lives forever in our home on a beautiful 16×24 canvas from CanvasPop. Of course, the canvas doesn’t magically come to you via thin air. You have to take some actions…

  1. Go to and look around at all the options.
  2. Decide what canvas you are interested and what photo you’ll get printed. We obviously chose the one of all six of us that made us smile the most!
  3. Upload your photo to CanvasPop‘s super easy upload tool.
  4. Edit, if you’d like.
  5. Wait for your support agent to email you that your proof is ready for approval. It will look something like this: orderpreview
  6. Once you’ve approved, it’s off for printing. Patience (but their shipping is super fast, so you don’t need a ton).
  7. Open the adorable package.
  8. Hang canvas.


It’s that easy. I mean, honestly, I probably wrote in way too many steps. I’m simply in love with the canvas (and my family).

And…there’s more. CanvasPop is so awesome that they are giving away a canvas to one of my readers! This giveaway will end in a week, so get in on this fast!
