"Well, it's time for another installment of the Castle Casa Bedroom Re-do. Today's topic will be curtains. Amy, would you like to tell us about the Curtains you recently hung in the newly decorated bedroom?" (Be sure to read that in your fake annoying smary talk show host voice!)
Well I don't know about you all, but my house is set to close to my neighbors house, to not feel comfortable without having curtains. Especially when my bedroom window matches up almost perfectly with their living room/kitchen. Taking the curtains down for 4.5 days was a big deal and a little disconcerting. So after painting the walls and finishing the stencil (huzzah) I got to cracking on those curtains.I pulled my inspiration from here and here. I love the stenciling on the first one, but have decided for now, to leave them plain.
My first stop was the Home Depot, where I purchased two 6x9 painters tarps/drop cloths at $9.98 a pop. I took those puppies home, and popped them in the washing machine with lots and lots of Fabric Softener.
I ironed them, then hemmed them up on the 4 sides that were raw after my Hulk Hogan impression. Did a quick tube at the top and viola, this girl has curtains again. Sorry to all those nosy neighbors.
