DIY window treatments

Thanks for sharing!

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.

  1. Thanks for the sharing amazing information about the window treatments. we have just renovated our house and searching for good curtains online for the window. I will take care of your tips and ideas during purchasing curtains.

  2. I really support you when you say window treatments really tie a room together. It is almost like you need to pick the drape colors and then get another room accoutrements that work with the drape colors and designs. I’d say that any person would admit that the drapes are usually the focal point for anyone entering a room for the first time.

  3. I like the bamboo shades because when paired with the Hawaiian floral print blinds, they have a nice tropical look. Plus, buying them at the dollar is a deal you can’t beat. My wife and i are thinking of doing something similar and this idea may help! Thanks for the post!

  4. Great window covering ideas. Thanks for so many easy project ideas.
    I also saw your house in Southern Hospitality today. What a gorgeous place! A true Southern Home.

  5. I love all of these so much. Makes me want to change my drapery plans. I change my mind so often before I get started ….. I just might do one of these.

  6. Thank you so much for including my Faux Bamboo Shade from placemats! It’s a great collection of ideas. I’ll be pinning and sharing on FB! Have a great weekend.

I love hearing from you!
