Drape Extensions

Posted: November 23rd, 2009 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |

My drapes got extensions this weekend.

Remember my whole drape dilemma? Well the color and pattern were solved, here, but I it left an awkward emptiness at the bottom. So I used clip to bring them down and this drove me crazy…


I reviewed all the possibilities:
☛I could have added fabric - didn’t want to try to match them.
☛I could have bought longer ones - yeah right?
☛I could have brought down the curtain rod - but then the curtain on the entry to the master bath would look funny.

Sooo….cleverly, and with some sadness that I had to go buy another panel from Walmart, but I simply cut off the end of the drape and Nester Style, hot glued the two curtains together to make them look like they flowed into eachother.

This way so easy and fast that I didn’t even take pictures.
Sorry about that!
So here are the beauties with their long, flowing locks:


Can you even tell? Here is a close up:


And then I figured I’d better use the rest of the fabric soon before it finds a place and hides there…so I surprisingly did another mistreatment and 6 safety pins later…




Now if only that laundry basket would stay empty!

    Really well done. I need curtains in our new house but we had to order blinds for the house, so curtains are not in the budget right now. I might head over to the Nester and look at some of her mistreatments to get ideas for my laundry room.
