Blue Monday: salvaged curtains

it saddened me that i hadn’t had new curtains for the longest time. and,  suddenly, it gladdened my heart when last saturday, when i was rummaging things in the storage, found and idea to re-do some old curtains of my mom.

here’s what i sewed during the weekend…

found  silk fabric from my mom’s old sheets and i transformed them into little blue swags which i paired off with white sheer chiffon to create drama on a false window. then i added also mom’s old room curtain with blue prints and sewed them pleated style.

viola! my DIY curtains with zero dollar spent!

i fancy those made to order modern silk and lacy curtains, but since i have no budget for that, i may have to used up my sewing ability to come up with something that would fancy my pockets. this way, my blue-themed curtains “newly” hangs in my windows…

HEAD ON TO SMILING SALLY FOR MORE BLUE MONDAY POST
