What a long day it's been.
So I'm working on a new project inspired by The Hand Me Down House; Curtains made from Sheets (see below) for our Nursery today.
I got all geared up, got everything I needed and set up to install & make curtains. I'll post a more detailed post about the results & everything I used... but let me summarize my experience today.
1. The screws that came with my curtain rod were too long and for some reason, wouldn't screw all the way into the wall. So, really, I had to install the rod twice because I had to find new screws around the house to use instead.
2. It took me a while to figure out how I wanted to display the
3. I ironed two flat sheets (from two different sets of sheets) from top to bottom to get all of the wrinkles out from the packaging. After cutting & trimming the first sheet, my husband got home and says to me, "Wow babe! Those look great! But... did you mean to get this one in Dark Green?" as he points to the one I *JUST* ironed. *FACEPALM* No, sweet hubby, I did not mean to get it in Dark Green. I suppose I'll have to exchange it. Pregnancy brain at it's best, eh?
I was SURE I'd have this project done in a few simple steps in no time at all. However, between all the mishaps and mistakes I made I've decided to step away from the project and finish the second panel tomorrow. I definitely needed the break.
Stay tuned for the finished, beautiful, DIY curtains that will be finished this weekend!
