There are two things in decorating that I have never been very good at: spending a lot of money and commitment. So these curtains are right up my alley. I wanted curtains that looked like they were made from custom fabric I just didn’t want to spend that kind of money. Plus I am known to change my mind at a moments notice so I can’t justify buying anything that can’t be changed on a whim.
These curtains came about when I just happen to see some great dish towels in World Market. I loved the fabric and I had a little lightbulb moment when I realized they could be used as curtains. Even better…they didn’t need hemming. NO SEWING! I knew IKEA carried these great inexpensive curtain rods that would work perfectly. The rods are expandable so they can fit most any size standard window. (*Note: one of my windows was more narrow but my husband was able to cut off some of the length of the rod with no problem). The rods have clips so that you just hang the fabric right from them.
So I have been enjoying my lovely inexpensive curtains for the last couple of years but I was itching for a change. A new season, a new fabric, right? So I headed back to World Market because I knew they would have great
fabrics towels again. I scored 4 new dish towels for $3.99 a pop. I grabbed four, ran an iron over them, unclipped the old towels, and hung the new ones. When it was all said and done I had spent $16 and less than one hour to complete this project!

I just got delayed taking the pictures hence the day-night transition!
