Don't want no short short curtains!
We hung the rod too low in a quick fix when we first moved in however we finally have curtains we like and need to address the fact that they appear to be waiting for a flood.
Curtain rods are hung too low, but damn i love these curtains.. only $25 per panel.
|The curtains have finally been raised, now to deal with this shorty|
|Quite the difference in length|
|I've cut 16" inches of fabric from an extra panel.|
|folded the cut edge over and used no sew fabric glue to hold the seam and hide the jagged cut.|
|Once the glue held, I lined up the pattern and used the fabric glue to secure the new fabric to the front of my existing curtain|
|This time instead of using glue to hold the jagged fold together I applied the witchery tape and ironed it. |
|Next, I lined up the fabric so the patterns matched and used no sew fabric glue to attach it directly to the front of the existing curtain|
|The extension isn't horribly noticeable and I'm pretty happy with the results considering it was fabric with a pattern AND done without a sewing machine|
|Loving the raised curtain rod and the longer panels! I also think its time to retire my no sew glue.|
We also got a brand new Sisal area rug for the family room...
|Ralph Lauren at HomeSense.. go figure|
|Warmth! what a difference an area rug can make|
|Family Room is ALMOST complete|
