Hey everyone- I hope you're having a great Pink Thursday. I'm currently on my way to Chicago with Mr. and Mrs. Kboss, as well as a new colleague, T-rexa. The next few days are going to be super packed, so I don't think I'll get to do much blogging. But...rest assured, I'll take tons of pictures and will update you on my trip after I get back to Boston.
For now, here's a pretty awesome DIY project I worked on earlier this summer. For some reason, my bedroom window had no shades or curtains, and because it looks directly into the kitchen of another apartment, I needed to find curtains in a pinch. I bought a curtain rod and used some old sheets I had lying around and voila- problem solved...sort of. The result is pretty cute, although my neighbors can technically still peep at me.
DIY Sheet Curtains
Spring the supply list!
- 2-3 bed sheets, preferably flat sheets
- 1 spring tension curtain rod
- duct tape (optional)
1) Cut sheets into strips of about the same width. Depending on the size of your window, you can cut the sheets width-wise or length-wise. (No need to make perfectly straight cuts- the edges will just curl anyway.)
2) Cut slits lengthwise in each of the strips. (I did mine approx. 5 inches away from the top of the strips, but it depends how much fabric you want to hang over the bar.)
3) Attach strips to curtain rod by pulling bottom end of strip through the slit you just created.
4) Hang curtain rod and enjoy. (Use duct tape if absolutely necessary to help secure the curtain rod.)
