Curtains: Before and After

We have had our main room for about 6 years now. In all that time, we have used a blanket or a sheet, held up with popsicle sticks wedged into the cracks, as a curtain when needed for our main window. I’m not sure why it took so long to do something about it, but it was just not a big priority.

A couple of weeks ago, we went to the MegaPaca and I found the perfect beige sheet to use for curtains. I got it and brought it home and didn’t do anything for a while. Irving put up the curtain rod at long last and we hung a sheet there for the time being.

Not exactly the best living room curtain, though the boys loved it!

Finally, yesterday, in an effort to procrastinate from writing, I sat down and measured and cut and sewed. The sheet was big enough to fold over and create a double thick curtain. While there are some little mistakes in the curtains, they turned out really well and make our living room feel like a real home. I can’t believe we didn’t do this sooner!

Also, there will be no more hassles with the blanket falling down and having to jam the sticks back in. A definite improvement. Next project? Washing those dirty windows!

  1. They look great!

    We had sheets hung for a long time around here too. Then one day after we’d been living here for a bit, our landlord came to fix something while we were gone, and when we got back, she had hung curtains for us. She must have felt bad for the young newlyweds with sheets strung over the curtain rods! haha
