Well this is partially after because I did add two panels per window and I have no idea where that hideous ironing board cover came from. I also raised the curtain rod as high as possible to add more height to this room. An idea from the nester . Our ceilings are 8 ft and can seem pretty low sometimes. The furniture in this room is also what we bought when we lived in our other house which had large rooms and 10 ft ceilings. So this furniture is definitely too big for this room.
Anyhow the curtains were really easy to do. I washed them on the warm/cold cycle with detergent and a little bit of Resolve Spray (the only reason I used that is because it smells soooooo good) and dried them on regular setting. I then pulled out my old dusty ironing board and ironed and ironed and ironed. A 6′ by 9′ piece of canvas can take a long time to iron properly! Then I secured them with clip rings and turned over the top until the bottom was draping on the floor and clipped them up at even intervals. Eventually I think I would like to add some sort of fringe or ribbon across the top and/or down the sides. But for today I wanted to keep it a “no sew” kinda’ day. I would say the only hard part was the ironing. I think I refilled my iron with water about 5 times! Not too shabby for $9 a panel! What do you think?
