I grew up in a super rural town and we never necessarily needed curtains. Now that we're in a real neighborhood, and we're on a corner lot it's become a necessity. But curtains are expensive! We bought them for the Living Room from Target - because the fabric would have cost more if I were to make them. And the Dining Room ones were a $15 find at Marshall's.
For the Kitchen, I saw a very simple tutorial for curtains and decided to try it.
I made a few changes - I lined them because of the white fabric I bought, and I used a sewing machine.
I found this organic cotton fabric on Etsy!
Kitchen without curtains:
And now we have Curtains!
They really were super simple! I'll probably use the same method for the bedrooms upstairs.
Have you tacked your own curtains before? I have a more intricate type that I want for my craft room, but the fabirc I got is so pretty (and a bit of a splurge) that I'm afraid I'll mess up - so the fabrics been sitting in the closet since January.
