Custom drapes on a budget



We are linking up with Wendy from the Shabby Nest for a Frugal Friday party.


I wanted a custom curtain treatment, but without the custom price. I found some plain tab top curtains @ Target that were the perfect color, but I didn't like the tab top look and they weren't long enough. So I decided to customize them and sent them out to my seamstress. She cut off the tabs and added some fabric and trim on the top. She work really cheap because she my Mom. I really need to learn to sew.


Now with the tabs gone, I used black clip rings to hang my new custom curtains. I dressed each window for around $30.00 total.

I guess I should've left part of my last comment about your custom curtains (at your plastic letters post) at THIS post --Aren't those moms wonderful! Mine slip-covered my sofa for me at the beginning of the summer, and I feel like I've had a new couch ever since!

Anyways, I just wanted to say that I love what your mom did with your curtains! They are yummy!

Grins!
