    I love my curtains from IKEA. I did all my huge window in our Chicago vintage apartment for under $100. Curtains are … just fun.


  2. NanaDoll

    absolutely love the shades–wow–that is one very creative mind to come up with that idea! going to try it for my living room!

  3. Freya

    I can’t WAIT till I get to live somewhere where I can do cool things with my curtains!

  4. Mimi

    I love the curtains with the dark trim. Been wanting to do that for some time. I also like when curtains have a vertical ribbon trim.

    Thank you for posting these!!!!! I have been wondering how I was going to transform some fabric I have into lovely (and very inexpensive) window coverings for the bedroom, as seen in this inspiration post:
    I was starting to dispair that the fabric would just languish in a bin forever. The Inspired Room to the rescue! (I am totally going to do the mini-blinds makeover project from Scoutie Girl!)

    Thankfully, I live in the same city as a huge Ikea. They have curtain rods for £5.00 there, so I really have no problems with curtain rods. I just pop into Ikea when I want new ones. Oh, the bliss!
