I did a cost benefit analysis on this and it is better to purchase these than for me to make them.
$20 in fabric + sewing + lining (more money) + headaches = not worth saving $20.
Need a simple, classic, affordable way to spruce up your windows? Ballards is having a great sale on their burlap panels. 108" for $39!! I don't like the fringe so ordered a longer length so I can just cut them off. This is a great way to switch things up without making a huge color and financial commitment. I'd love to be bold and go with a colorful pattern, but don't want to drop the cash on something I'm not sure I'll love.
Someday, I'd like to do a makeover like the "Den Do-Over" featured in Southern Living last month.
The online article doesn't show the "before" photo of the living room like the magazine does. It was dark and boring. I love how the drapes and throw pillows really livened things up. For now, I'm sticking with neutrals to maintain that beachy, classic look. Install with photos to come.......
