Window treatments can really make a room design come together. Some don’t care for window treatments, but I happen to love them. To me they add a level of coziness. It’s just a personal preference.

They can be very expensive when custom-made. I had our bedroom window treatments custom-made 13+ years ago , and it was pricey. I had sewn simple curtains before, but I was afraid to tackle the look I was after.  Plus at the time, the kids were very young. Never again will I pay that kind of money.

You don’t have to know how to sew to create a beautiful window treatment! With iron on tapes and clips, you can create the look with minimal time and effort.
