A Little About Me:

~I am a TV fanatic! Some of my favorite shows are: Survivor, The Big Bang Theory, Project Runway, Design Star, The Hills (it's the hubs and I's guilty pleasure!), and so on and so on! I also LOVE to crochet while I watch TV it's so relaxing to me!

~I Love thrift shopping! Taking old things and revamping them is my favorite, and also saves money another one of my favorite things!!

~I Love blogging and getting to meet new friends like Mandy!! Isn't she the best!

Today I have the EASIEST window treatment ever created....well don't quote me on that but its up there on the super easy scale!

The Before and After:


{Desperate need of an update right!


{I just adore the stripes! But the hubby on the other hand thought they looked like something that belonged in a pirate ship...? Compliment....I think not ;).}

Want to make some of your own?

Here is what you need:

~I used a duvet cover I bought at Ikea! I bought a full/queen but could have mos def gone with a twin!

~Seam Ripper
~Sewing Machine
~Measuring Tape

How it's done:

1. Remove duvet from plastic and measure both your window and your duvet cover.

2. Seam rip the seams throughout the duvet creating 2 separate panels.

3. Cut your newly made panels to the size determined in the previous step.

4. Sew up your raw edges and a loop for the rod of your curtain to slip through.

5. Slip your newly made curtain panels onto your rod to your liking.

6. Enjoy!

These really have been the easiest project I have done in a while! They took like no time at all and make such an impact on the room!

I also love how they added another print or pattern to the room, adding multiple patterns to a room creates visual interest and adds personality. For sure try it out!

If you have any questions about anything or just for fun please let me know I am more than happy to help! Hope you all have a great day!! Thanks again! Love, love.

Isn't she fun? Hop on over to Meet Virginia & check it out. You'll be so glad you did!
Thanks again Morgan!
