I've been plucking away at my bedroom lately, and have been eager to show you guys my crazy cheap solution for new curtains.
Queen size sheets.
The group of windows in our bedroom are wide and on the taller side. The last curtains I had up were 54 inches wide and didn't come close to completely shutting when I wanted extra privacy. Curtains can be freaking expensive, and when I was looking for drapes this time around I couldn't stomach having to buy double just to get the width I needed.
(This kid can't stay away if a camera is around. Like a moth to a flame, people!)
I came across using a sheet by accident. We just had new windows put in and had to toss a sheet over the rod for privacy until we could put the shades back up. It actually looked good! So, I picked up two queen sized flat sheets from Target for around $12 each. All I had to do was hem the bottom and attach them to clip rings.
Bada-bing bada-boom. It was so easy and I love how nice and full they are. And for cheap sheets, they really aren't thin. They have just the right amount of light filtration. I wouldn't recommend using them without shades though. You might end up giving the neighbors a good show ;D
One more thing checked off the list!
I'm waiting on my art pieces for either side of the bed to be framed right now. They were a gift from my very talented aunt, and I think you'll likey!
So, next time you need some drapes on the cheap, don't pass up the bed linen department. Especially with all the pretty sheets out lately.
Is this something you'd go for?
