More Mis-treatin' in the Bathroom

I've been back at work now for a week and a half
so I haven't been able to post as frequently...

but here is a little project I worked on while on my 2 week break:

Remember these windows in my re-done master bath?
There's another pair in the opposite corner.

I finally got around to mis-treating them with one of these:

It was a pre-made curtain that I found a Walmart.
I just cut it into 4 sections, ironed down the edges, and then glue-gunned
them down! As the "Daughter of an Artist" who happens to
be a master of all things sewn...I'm ashamed to say that
I didn't inherit any of that sewing talent!!!

So the glue gun has become my bestfriend!

Then I simply tacked up the curtains with furniture tacks!

How does it look? Not bad, huh?

If you hang them much higher than the actual window
then it looks better.

And it makes you think the windows are taller than they really are!
I "dressed" 4 windows for only $14.00!

That looks fantastic! I am so impressed at how much "mistreating" can do for windows! :)

Wow! You did an awesome job on them. I've seen it done like that before but your pictures showed me how easy it really is. Thank you

I'm still trying to figure out why you can't leave a comment on my other blog. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
