Creative and Crafty

So I found a new blog, thanks to Notes from the Soul, called the Nesting Place. It is a blog full of FUN, CREATIVE, and CRAFTY ideas to brighten any room in any home!!! I'm in love!

Well I was doing some reading this morning and found this:

Isn't it just wonderful? Anyways, the Nester (blog author) said she just used some material from old curtain she had and added a fringe at the bottom...the gathered pieces are just held together by safety pins, and the element at the top is just an old door handle!!!!!

So, this all got me to thinking that "Hello!!!" I need curtains for my bedroom..yes ladies, we bought this house over a year ago and I have greatly sinned...I still have no curtains in my bedroom! Becasue the window is wide, but short, I have had a lot of trouble figuring out what to do with it. So, I have decided that this weekend, I'm going t go find some inexpensive material, and fringe...and this is my new project!!!!
What do ya think...will it be FABULOUS??????

You did a great job! That other window will look great with curtains, too! If you hang them higher than the window it will help balance out the shortness.

You'll do a great job! I'm headed into my bathroom to work on the fabric above my tub. I wouldn't call it a window treatment yet.... :)

And don't feel bad, we've lived here almost 2 years and I STILL haven't done anyting on our huge windows in our family room!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love the nester! And, don't feel bad, I have lived in my house almost 1 1/2 and do not have one curtain up...just the wooden blinds. Boring!
