You know that I’ve been saying for a while that the living room needs a lot of work… well, with Friday’s addition of the coffee table, and with the color brought in by our NEW CURTAINS I am starting to fall in love with the room… it’s coming together. And maybe I’m partially just falling in love with it because that’s where the Christmas music is coming out of every single minute of the day. 🙂
The new curtains are, wait for it, shower curtains from Target (the Master Bedroom and Guest Bedroom has shower curtains made into curtains).
Each window is made from one shower curtain, their Blue Grid pattern. Do you wonder why I’m always using shower curtains? I find better fabric on the shower curtains and it works out to be cheaper than buying it by the yard. Each shower curtain is 72 x 72 inches (or 6 feet by 6 feet). To find 2 yards of amazing fabric for each side for under $10 is pretty darn good… and then I needed to add a foot panel of white to lengthen the curtains. I used a white curtain from Target from my last apartment pre-AJ.
The rods and curtain tabs are in their Antique Brass color, both are also from Target.
If you want me to be really honest I only have lengthened four of the panels because the electricity kept cutting in and out and then I moved them around the room so you could see how it’ll look. I had no idea if this storm would be like the one last year where folks in New Hampshire had no power for eight days… EIGHT!
To check out our other shower curtains made into normal curtains look at our Master and Guest Bedrooms on the House Tour page.
I added an “Advertise” section on the blog for any businesses or blogs wanting to get some publicity. I logged into my FeedBurner account to get some stats and saw that I have about 900 people subscribing via email… thanks everyone, and I mean it… I thought it was maybe five people I love hearing from you and getting your comments, you make my day. 🙂
My rates are pretty inexpensive and it would be great to partner with you whether you are advertising your own blog or an Etsy shop!
Let me just show you how some of our Halloween festivities have started out (last year he was a puppy with a poofy belly, this year he was a lion with a poofy belly):
Drew was a little more interested in his candy than getting a photo with me. Shocking, I know.
