I have been needing curtains, right? I know I've mentioned it...weeks ago. Unfortunately, with limited funds things are slow going in the project department. Tomorrow we have Grandpa Mike coming for a visit and he will be sleeping upstairs......there are no curtains (or blinds) up there......even in the bathroom. Well, that's not totally true, the play/school room has 3 windows, each with a valence. 2 valences from the old nursery and 1 that I made from the left over Roman shades material for the boys room (still not completed with the board, grrrr!).
Well, in my desperation for curtains the other day, I headed to the basement. There I ran across 3 old shower curtains that I had years ago (like 6 years ago!) when we lived in Portland. We had an OLD claw-foot tub that required 2 shower curtains and a closet without a door that I purchased a third matching curtain for. I still like the shower curtains, but they just haven't been needed for showers. So curtains they became. Two windows in the craft room/studio/office (we can't decide what to call our all-purpose room) and one window in the upstairs bathroom now have curtains. And they were basically free (I don't count money from that long ago).

I love it when a plan comes together.

I've also cut up old shower curtains to reuse for windows! Glad to see someone else is also improvising!! :) They look cute like that.

I am going to think of a way to make shower curtains into usable fishing items. I will let you know what I come up with.
