Here's a curtain I made as part of my effort to get the old beach towels off the windows of my house. Beach towels have their place, don't get me wrong, but it was time to move on. I had bought a whole bunch of this organic cotton for bedding materials, but I guess I didn't need it after all. It was nice and wide though, and I had enough to make curtains for four out of our eight windows, all matching and classy.
This was the hardest window to cover because it's so big, but I'm pleased with the solution I found. It let's in light but keeps us separated from the prying eyes of passersby (what are they looking at?!)
Sorry for the dark picture, it let's in light.
It took me awhile to figure out how to hang it, and this is what I came up with.
I ruined three of those little square curtain rod holders by cracking them before my husband stepped in to help (I'm not so good at the woodworking yet).
I just used those snapping metal rings to attach it to the dowel, the good part about that is that it's really easy to slide the curtain over.
I'm pretty happy with it. Thanks for looking.
