thrift stores are like a box of chocolates...you never know what you might get!
About 7 years ago, I begged my husband for a sewing machine, so I could make curtains for our house. He found me a used one, brought it home and I sewed bags. I sewed so many bags that I had to get a brand new one and I sewed even more bags and then I sewed so many bags I had to have help and buy more sewing machines but, I didn't make one single curtain.
Then, one day, very recently I made one for the playroom. I even have done two cornice boards, one for the playroom and one for the bathroom. (look closely for the bathroom one) Then I decided that maybe, I should start looking for curtains or window treatments at thrift stores. So, looky what I found...
Aren't they pretty? I suppose you can't really tell much about them, but I think that they are a big improvement from the "nothing" that was hanging there before, for the last 8 YEARS!
I paid $.50 a piece for the two small ones and $1 for the larger ones and the rods are cheap too! I'm so very happy that I didn't have to make them.
