Bedroom Makeover: Curtains

Guest Bedroom Makeover
Day 6: Anthropologie-Inspired Curtains

**Note: This is part of a 12-step bedroom makeover series. Find the previous steps at the bottom of this post.**

K, not a ton to say here, so I'll be brief...and if that concept isn't jaw-dropping, I don't know what to say. Which should make me even more brief, which would cause your jaw to drop even closer to the floor... Isn't this a fun never-ending cycle of brevity opposition.
 
So. I really like these curtains from Anthropologie. They're friendly, fun, and bee-boppy. (Nope, not an adjective. But if "bee-bop" could be used more often and in more grammatical functions in the world, communication as we know it would be enhanced. Just sayin'.)
 
 But, no shocker here, the $100ish pricetag for the curtains was a little too steep for me. So I recreated them using 10 yards of pom trim (ebay) and a white flat sheet I had on-hand, cut in half vertically.
 
 
Then I hung the two panels from a rope just for something playful.
 

I happen to love it, what can I say. It's all unexpected and maybe awesome.
 
Speaking of awesome, you should totes come back for Day 7: Nightstands. Yep. Totes.

  3. Love that curtain "rod"! Is that just natural rope?

    1. It's three strands of sisal rope, twisted together to make it more substantial.

    1. Aww, thank you. I loved Anthro's version and figured I would love the cheaper DIY as much. Not to brag, but I was totally right. Love. :)

    1. Thank you! It's actually several strands of thinner rope strung together, but it looks chunky, and that's what I was going for.

  9. DIY projects are a really good alternative as these help us save money. I think I’m gonna try making this curtain for my room. It looks so trendy and playful. And when I already have it there, I won’t let my kids run around ‘cause they might pull out its accessories. Thanks for sharing this!
