One of the first decorating blogs that I started reading is the Nesting Place. I heart the Nester. In fact, if there was a “First United Church of the Nester”, I would so be the lady pastor.
So, anyway, before the poor lady becomes afraid of me, I’ll get to the point. Two of my favorite garage sale “scores” in 2008 were these great pieces of fabric. I paid $2.00 each. Yep, 2 bucks. I had grand ideas about making these in to curtains, but absolutely no sewing skills. Oh, I had desire, but no talent whatsoever.
THEN I found the Nester. She taught me how to do window “mistreatments.”
The first piece of fabric was the perfect width, but longer than I needed. I folded it in half (no worry about a bottom seam), then folder over the top and ends to hide the unfinished edges. I got some curtain rod clips, used those strategically to hold the folds together and TaDaaa!
This is my dining room window.
I used the extra fabric for instant art work for the dining room.
Here’s to more awesome garage sale finds in 2009! I can’t wait until spring!
