Hello all in Craftster land!!! This is my first posting!!
I have been a lurker for some time now and after seeing some of the incredible, awesome stuff you all put on here, I decided to add one of my own...I hope this isn't going to be too lengthy or too much of a rant, bear with me.
Forgiveness if I don't put this in the right area..I'm still a luddite with the compooter/internets. Hopefully I can get my pictures on here without blowing up something...

My husband is in the military and we live in a 2 bedroom apartment. The second bedroom is SUPPOSED to be office/craft room/workout/man room but really it is just MAN ROOM...it's ok, I am pretty good at organizing so I have come up with some creative solutions.

My biggest pet peeve is when things are put on the wall with thumbtacks, I used to be a picture framer so hanging things up with tacks makes me twitch...some people can do it well...but in this room it's already crowded and the flags made everything seem like it was closing in.
He didn't have any curtains in there and weirdly, they were the same length as the window...soooo...i just put an extra grommet in the middle and hung them on the curtain rod with some leftover shower curtain hangers.
VIOLA!!! It worked out great!

The Gadsden Flag was already washed so it hangs a little softer than the 82nd flag.
It's not really the best, but if you have a man who likes flags (and nowhere to fly them) this might be a good backup plan...

Also, let me add..I don't know if you will care or not but my husband advises to not do this to a national flag..you are not supposed to alter a national flag in any way.

That's a clever idea, I just moved into my apartment, and it is in some dire need of curtains. Fortunately for me, my boyfriend has a collection of flags, now able to serve a purpose.  Smiley

Great solution! You've turned a problem into an asset. They look good up there!  Don't recognize the flags. Are they national flags?

thank you! I should've put the other picture up thee (but I'm still new at posting pictures)
the yellow flag is the Gadsden "Don't tread on me" flag, a big deal when they are deployed in another country, it's gotten a lot of press lately but that wasn't the intention for this flag..it hung up in his barracks room when he was in Afghanistan.
The blue flag is the 82nd airborne flag..

national flags are like the American flag or the Union Jack etc...
