Curtains for my office

A few months ago, my MIL and I were walking through Bed Bath and Beyond looking for shower curtain hooks for some project and we saw a TON of shower curtains on clearance...  Normally priced $20, on clearance for $5.  One of them caught my eye very quickly.  

The fabric was a fabulous orange color with a great raspberry print.... JUST LIKE MY OFFICE!  It was pretty easy to convince me to grab them and save the fabric to eventually make curtains for the office.
The fabric got set aside and I'll be honest, I kind of forgot about it.... until the other day when hubs walked into the office and said I needed curtains.  It was then that I remembered... HEY I was going to make some of those.... I HAVE THE PERFECT FABRIC!!!  And so project #2 began!

Because they were shower curtains, I decided to leave the top as is and just cut and hem the bottom.  Then I went to Big Lots and bought a dark shower curtain rod and some hooks.  SUPER SIMPLE and they turned out SUPER CUTE!  I decided to only make them 3/4 of the window to keep the room bright and let the natural light still shine in.

LOVE THEM!


Project #1 COMPLETE!  HOOZAH!

    1. Thanks, Tracy! Orange is my all-time favorite color. I'm not usually a pink fan, but I REALLY like raspberry mixed with orange! When I saw this fabric it was a MUST HAVE!
