When you move into a rental home the place either has blinds, curtains, or nothing in the windows. Blinds work nice, but if there are curtains and they are ugly then what do you do?
I take them off, store them and put up my own.
There is a large sliding glass door off of our kitchen nook. Hanging on the rod were dark red curtain panels with tassels along the bottom trim. Ugh!
I wanted them gone!
Trying to buy curtain panels long enough to fit this size was not easy. Most stores don't sell panels longer than 100 inches. You could custom order them and pay a pretty penny. Instead, go out and find two different panels that you like and would complement each other. Buy the desired amount, (I found mine at Marshalls for $20 a pair). Basically you cut a wide section of one panel and sew to the other. I didn't do the math or the sewing...I left that to my mom.
Love you mom!
But you can get the basic idea from looking at the finished product below.
They are fabulous!
