We moved into our current home five years ago. It took me close to a year to find some sort of window coverings for our bedroom that I could live with.
I have commitment issues when it comes to decorating. I like to look at all my options and then pick the best one. Only I can never really look at all the options now, can I?
There's always something better to see. At least that's what goes through my mind every time I come close to committing to a purchase.
So I wind up paralyzed, unable to make a decision and we live with items that I've thrown up until the "right" thing comes along. Meanwhile, five years have gone by and I really don't like the window coverings in my bedroom.
I saw an idea on Pinterest for curtains and I knew right away that I had to make them for our bedroom. They were cafe curtains used on the bottom of a cabinet, instead of doors. Linen on the top and vintage handkerchiefs along the bottom, acting as a border.
So sweet. And light. And airy.
Just what I wanted for the bedroom.
Only longer. Cafe curtains wouldn't cut it for the bedroom.
I found some cotton washcloths by Waverly (even though I think they look more like napkins, the packaging said washcloths) at a discount store and bought six bundles at $1.99 each. Added 6 yards of linen, used a 50% off coupon, and paid $18.00.
Total cost? $30.00 for four panels.
Curtain commitment issue? Solved.
