Thrifty Thursday

I thrifted these great curtains without knowing what I was going to use them for. They were a funky shape at 12 inches wide and 26 inches long. But, I really loved the color and pattern, so I purchased them.

Once I got them home, I realized they match my downstairs bathroom perfectly. It just so happened, I wanted to add a simple valance to that window. I thought with a little transformation, I could make them work. I removed the tabs and the top decorative fabric from the top of the curtains.

Then I reworked them onto the long side to make it fit my window.

I sewed the┬ádecorative fabric back on (taking it up another inch to show more of the under curtain), added it to a curtain rod and tada…

Not a great picture, but not bad for a $1.00 investment.

Happy Thrifting!
