I needed, or rather wanted, something super simple to hang in my office until I came across the *perfect* pair of curtains. I hunted for a set of flat sheets on the clearance aisle, snagged them up and brought them home to create some curtains.
Since they are already sewn, I just cut a small notch out of the back of the curtain at the top to slide the curtain rod through.
I then threaded the curtain rod through and hung the up.
They were a little on the plain side, don’t you think? So I bought some ribbon to sass it up just a bit.
I had both sides pulled back like the one side you see here, but I just didn’t like how that looked. I decided to buy some curtain tie backs and think of a way to pull them back.
I purchased the tie backs at Hobby Lobby and used my 40% off mobile coupon to score them for cheap! Hubby spray painted them white for me and I installed them.
Yes, sometimes I actually do some of the *work* on my projects. 😉
Next i took the rest of the ribbon and sewed the ends so they wouldn’t fray. I then added grommets to each side.
I pulled both sides back and this is how it looks now.
I am much happier with this look. It will probably change again soon as I am working on the bench cushion right now and I know that I’ll want the fabric I use there to compliment the fabric for the tie back, but for now…this will work.
What awesomeness have you created lately?
Stay awesome!! ~lisa
