Another window treatment post... yippee! Sorry I've been gone so long; I've missed you all terribly. Things are starting to slow down and the kids go back to school next week so I should be able to start blogging again. Anyway, here are our newest curtains
It is crazy difficult to find reasonably priced curtains for really tall windows. I got the idea to use cheap Bed Bath and Beyond tablecloths from from Robin Flies South. I am eternally grateful to her!
You can buy any size for $12.99. That's pretty close to $10 a panel when you use the 20% off coupon (which never expires, by the way). Not bad, right? These panels are 120 inches long... perfect for the 10 foot ceilings we have in the house!
I hemmed them just to make sure they don't puddle too much at the floor.
And I made "faux pinch pleats" that I learned to do from Allison at House of Hepworths. The rings and clips are from IKEA.
Each side of the sliding glass door has two panels and the little window has one panel on each side. That's about $65 in curtains.
I tried one panel on each side of the big window, but the curtains wouldn't quite close all the way. So I chip clipped them together when I wanted them to stay closed. Just until I bought 2 more panels.
Yep, I'm super classy.
I am so happy with how they turned out! The room is starting to come together... now just to replace the tiny coffee table that gets lost in such a big room. I'll be posting about other changes in the house soon. I promise!
Thanks so much for stopping by! And thanks for sticking with such a slacker blogger ;o)
