It all about solving a problem and doing it cheap. Home Decor? Daily Life? Anything. If you had a problem and you solved it with a frugal fix then this is the place to share it.
A few days ago I shared my frugal fix: a repurposed wine rack-towel holder. It worked like a charm and cost me nothing to do.
Today I am sharing with you my fantastic and frugal curtains. A little back story first. We had our house built two years ago and I was confused with what to do with these large floor to ceiling windows in every room. I liked the tailored drape look from Pottery Barn but with the sheer number of windows in this house, could not afford to do it.
I found a great fabric at Walmart that was perfect style wise for my house and it cost only $7.97 per yard. I bought some muslin to line them and envisioned my new drapes.
Now may be a good time to mention though that I do not really sew---not well enough to sew drapes for my livingroom at least. So my window treatment --or window mistreatment as called by the Nester--was created using my hot glue gun: from attaching the muslin lining to hemming the hems.
In total the 4 drapes in this room cost me a little under $21 and I love them. They are perfect for this room.
What is your frugal fix this Friday? If you have a post with your fix use Mr. Linky to link up. If not use the comments to tell us about your frugal fix. Either way I am looking so forward to hearing your ideas this and every Friday!
