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.
This collection has a variety from no-sew, minimal sewing to repurposing something else for a window treatment!
No-sew Window treatment from Artsy Chicks Rule. Isn't this fabric gorgeous!!! They look every bit custom!
Here is another example from Artsy Chicks Rule. Love this French Country look.
Are you sitting down! This faux bamboo shade is made with dollar store placemats!!! You can find the instructions at House on the Way.
Need a shorter curtain like for a bath! This is fast, inexpensive and stylish from Petticoat Junktion.
Yes….with a twin sheet! There are some beautiful sheets out there. They are already hemmed to use for a light and airy look from What Meegan Makes.
I am really wanting to try this look….very French Country from Country Design Style. Below you'll find another example using these instructions! Definitely on my to-do list!
Tired of your mini-blinds? Why not make a Roman shade out of them from Rappsody in Rooms.
This cornice board is made from foam board that kids use for school projects!! Cool! Also from Rappsody in Rooms.
Look how gorgeous these are!!! These are from Dio Home Improvements.
I love using drop cloths. This is a painted shower curtain using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and a drop cloth. It looks just like the ones from Ballard Designs from Refresh Restyle.
I made these!! They are from drop cloths and left over fabric from another curtain. You can find it HERE.
Fall is just around the corner. Now is the time to get started on new window treatments for the holidays. Have you tried your hand at making window treatments? I'd love to hear about it!
