We have curtains in the playroom now. (And blinds, finally, yeah I use that word a lot).
These aren’t real curtains? Nope. Where did I get them? How did I make them? How much did these beauts cost? Whoa there, Nelly. I promise, it’s not as difficult/expensive as you think.
They are twin sheets from Wal-Mart. Yep. That’s right. The cheap ones – Mainstays, $5 each. Uh-huh. Hung with ring clips from Lowe's (they have the bigger ones for my spray painted closet rod-turned-curtain rod). Don’t read that last sentence or you’ll know all my secrets.
Anywho, I was going nutty from not having curtains (or blinds). This window gets a lot, lot, lot of sun. I managed to find one blind but had to wait for a second one to come in stock. With one blind hung and no curtains I was really going batty. But I couldn’t find any cute sheets to work. I needed two sets of twin sheets for the twin beds in the guest room, so I figured if I tried plain white ones and they looked awful I’d still be able to use the sheets later. So I tried it, and . . . it didn’t look too bad at all. I can totally live with this until that wow fabric finds me.
