However, in order to ease my conscience I decided to save money in certain areas by repurposing, recycling and reinventing! Case in point...my living room curtains. I have 5 windows in that room surrounded by gorgeous wood. I wanted something spectacular but did not want to pay a fortune for window treatments. So, here is what I did:
I'm so pleased with the results. Love how they puddle. Love the slightly wrinkled look. Five windows for $50. Lot's of sewing but well worth it.
|Here are four of the windows in the parlor. I want to be able to see out to the street but also would like privacy at night. The sun is amazing in this room and I can't wait to put my leopard chaise in this area.|
|Adore the ruffles. I cut 10 inch strips from another drop cloth until I had enough (about 1.5 to 2 times the actual width of the curtain) It really adds to the look that I am going for.|
