Not only is this a four day weekend here At Home With The Hinsons,
it's also kick off to another Auburn football season!!!
Tonight we're having my in-laws over for a small football party.
But you know I can't chill on the couch without feeling like my work is done.
So I needed a little crafty creation to propel my Saturday cleaning spree.
We've been in our house for almost two years now.
Although it's somewhat put together, nothing is done.
Since this is the view of James' room as I walk down the hall...
I felt a window treatment was a great little project for this morning.
Yes it's messy, I'm just keeping it real. ;>
I've been looking for the perfect/affordable curtain and rod. Which is exactly why his window is still naked! But with help from the Nester, I remembered that it Doesn't Have To Be Perfect To Be Beautiful. Check her out, she's so much fun to follow! :D
I took this rod
( donated from my sister a couple of yard sales ago )
and these curtain clips
( $3.99 at Tuesday Mornings yesterday ).
James' first big boy bed was bunk beds. Since he got his new bed last December we've had twice the bedding. It's Pottery Barn so even though we've used and abused it, it still looks great.
As I was hanging the curtain rod ( which was no small feet I might add ) I remembered the extra bedding. I took this flat sheet and ironed it.
I attached the curtain clips and **SqUeAL** it looks SO MUCH BETTER!!!
I can't believe I've waited so long to tackle this project.
It makes me smile every time I walk by.
So go ahead, gush, tell me how much you love it
and then, tell me your honest opinion.
Should I fold more over in the front?
Hang it higher??
Come on girls, help a sista out! ;>
And while you're showing me some love,
have a great weekend!!!
After living with it for a few hours I thought I'd try tweaking it.
I folded more so it hangs ike a curtain.
Whacha think now?!
God's blessings, Sarah
