Hello, all!

After living in our house for over a year and a half I finally finished these drapes to cover the windows flanking the front door. The windows look right onto the couch in our living room. Now we have privacy and can block the crazy summer sun here in Las Vegas. Smiley

The fabric I had in my stash. I believe I bought it for very cheap at Walmart. I also lined it with drapery lining fabric from Joann's. My husband found the drapery rods at Ross for $3 each, cut them down to size, and then spray painted them black (they were brown). I think in all we spent about $30 on this project.

All I need to do now is finish some tiebacks for when we do want to let more light in. I'm thinking something jeweled. Smiley
