Oh, curtains. They can be such a pain in the rear challenge when it comes to decorating.
There are just so many factors to consider – length, weight, material, sheerness, rod style… Take all that and then try to find the color and pattern you want.
That’s where I have found myself time and again turning to DIY projects to get the exact curtains I need and want for my space.
