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!
