This Weeks Project- "Make Do" Curtains
So I was tired of having the neighbors headlights in my bay window every night and needed some curtains that I could draw closed in the evenings. Bay window treatments are more difficult to deal with, especially when you have a crooked house. lol and windows that should be replaced. So, I came up with these. I purchased the tiers for 5.00 a pair at a closeout sale online. That was a great deal! I couldn't even purchase the fabric to make them for that price. I made the push pins holding the twine out of vintage buttons that I had found in my basement when we moved in. I hot glued 2 or 3 of them together using different sizes and colors, and glued them to the stem of a clear push pin. I added the clothespins to hold the curtains back in the daylight hours. I thought they came out pretty cute! The curtains are strung on simple garden twine that you can pick up at any hardware store. Do you like them?
Hello, I have loved and decorated in the primitive/farmhouse style for over 30 years. I love to shop for antiques and love garage sales and thrift shops. I like to try to repurpose things that I already have and live a pretty thrifty lifestyle. My husband and I live in a late 1800's farmhouse style home along with our 3 children and numerous cats and one dog in Massachusetts. We have lived in this house for a year and a half. We have been collecting antiques for many years. I am always thinking of new ideas for display of my beloved prim accents, and wanted to share them with others. I will also be talking about my prim style gardening when the seasons allow, family life, pets, cooking and whatever else comes to mind.
