*****Remember those boring curtains that I made for the bedroom and then hated? Well, I finally fixed them, and now I love them! I decided to completely remove the rods and just use upholstery tacks. I couldn't be happier with the result. I think The Nester should write a book about mistreating windows. It would be a best seller. In fact, she could even have a TV show with the tag line "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful". This is step one. My hemmed, and properly-made (sort of) curtains thatI hated. I took the rod down, and tacked them up just above the trim. After adding the leftover fabric on top (which I did not hem or even iron), and of course my satin ribbon tiebacks (brown because our bedding is brown)... Ta-da! The room is so much brighter now that I have a way to keep the curtains open. I don't quite hate my bedroom as much as I used do. The wonders of upholstery tacks!
