They’re finally done! The curtains are up in the office and I’m crossing another project off my to-do list!
Let’s go back about a month, back when I ordered 5 ½ yards of this navy/white chevron fabric:
It’s from fabric.com and was $7.48/yard (after coupon code, I paid $37.28 for my yardage). I was so excited about the fabric, but once it arrived it just sat in the box while I took my sweet time painting stripes. Once I finally finished the stripes, it was time to move on to the curtains.
I used iron-on hem tape (Heat n Bond Ultra-Hold) to “sew” the sides instead of actually sewing. I did sew the rod pocket though!
Then I hung the curtains to see how long I wanted them…and I ended up just cutting the bottom instead of hemming them! I know, super lazy…but the sleeper sofa is going to go in front of the window, so no one will see the bottom. Plus I cut them nice and straight, so you wouldn’t be able to tell unless you were really looking.
And with that, the curtains are up and the office is one project closer to being complete!
As for the curtain rod, it’s the same one that was already in here. It’s originally from Hobby Lobby. I ended up mounting it a few inches higher than before since my new curtains are longer than the previous ones. It’s a great trick to make the window look larger.
And with that, I can officially cross “Sew curtains” off my to-do list:
Sell current desk on Craigslist
Replace outlets and switches with white ones
Buy 2 chairs
Buy pair of desk lamps
Buy and paint file cabinet
Mount TV on the wall
Create a gallery wall around the TV
Build pallet artwork
Buy sleeper sofa
Buy/build end table
