Good Wednesday morning!
Let’s start today with one of my favorite things – a tutorial that will help you create something that will personalize your space in a major way!
Of course, since I am fabric-obsessed, I appreciate the perfect curtain to complement a room. Matt and I moved out young and didn’t have anything beyond mini-blinds for years. When we bought our first house in our early 20’s, I was so jazzed to go curtain shopping! Finally, we’d be decorating a place the way we wanted to decorate it.
The curtains I wanted were gorgeously out of budget, but,oh, so nice to look at. They were long and flow-y, and pattern-y. All great qualities in window decor. But as a college student (me) and a five-years-out-from-college youngster (Matt), the curtains that we actually ended up getting were nothing special and weren’t all that nice-looking. (And they still weren’t cheap, either!)
I had always loved the long, flowing, fancy style curtains and was sure that’s what I’d have someday. And then I fount out I’m severely allergic to dust mites. (They are everywhere, and they love to live in dusty, flowing curtains, of course!) And then I had children – children who like to rip and tear tug and pull and roll themselves into long, flowing fancy curtains. (Animals!)
