Free No-Sew Curtains For The Ozark House Day 33


 I keep whining about the amount of money we are spending.
An inexpensive curtain rod runs about $25,
each inexpensive curtain panel costs about the same.  Ouch.
I found some old fashioned cheapo metal roads in the "attic" and an
idea formed for the upstairs curtains.

When I owned an antique store I used these vintage sheers for the windows.
They have a tiny little pattern, and when they have the sun shining thru
them and are blowing in the wind....
well, there is nothing more romantic.
So I kept them for 15 years waiting for such a time as this.

 I used some shorter ones in the bathroom.
First I wrapped the ugly curtain rod with a longer sheer.

 Then I draped the sheer sections over the rod and tied the ends together.
It took 9 of them + the one wrapped over the rod. 
I wasn't about to hand hem all of those to length.

I kind of love the casual,
irregular look of them.
(And just image those blowing in the wind!)

  2. thanks. we'll see what my husband says next weekend. that's the great thing about doing most of the work myself, he doesn't get a chance to disapprove. (but he generally does like inexpensive choices)
