We live in a little ranch house. The rooms are small, the closets are small, the bathroom is small, and the windows are incredibly small. Although I have lots to complain about, this post is going to focus on the itty bitty windows. We have lots and lots of windows in our house, but they are all very short in height. This feature makes it extremely difficult to purchase curtains. I would just make them myself, except I can't figure out how to use my damn sewing machine.
So, a few weeks ago I decided to buy curtains for the kitchen and bathroom. I wanted to hang a valance and tier, like this. However, I couldn't find any curtains short enough for our windows. The valances would be touching the tiers, blocking out all natural light. Grrr.
I went home and thought about our curtain conundrum. Finally, I came up with a compromise...
I draped ivy garland across the top and hung a tier on the bottom. I thought it looked so good, I decided to repeat this design in the bathroom...Now that I am living with my new window treatments, I can't decide if I actually like them. Be honest - do my windows look retarded?
