DIY Curtains

life is a do-it-yourself project.
-Napoleon Hill

It took me a few tries to get the perfect curtains for my living space, and who knows what I'll think of them in a few months. Because I change my mind so often I try to find super cheap curtains at Salvation Army or Target's clearance shelf, but that's really hit or miss. I would make my own but I didn't feel that a sewing machine was a necessary use of my limited space but it turns out that I don't need one. Here are some great sites if you need custom curtains but have limited resources.

How To:
    Get Creative:
    So get creative! There are all sorts of ways to make cool curtains that also give you privacy and display a bit better than a bed sheet tacked to the roof. Try fabric paint, use an eyelet tool (like the one we made the DIY laundry bag with), or full on dye them for the effect you want. It's all doable and easier than you might think.

    Don't stop there! Check out these other Tuckerbag projects:

        1. I'll check back here for inspiration. Theo needs new window shades and I KNOW I won't be able to afford the store bought blinds.

          Thanks for the linkage!
