I've done a post before about the power of curtains and here is another one to prove my point. Everyone knows paint is an easy and inexpensive way to give a room a quick redo, or fresh new look. But, I think swapping out your curtains is even easier and doesn't have to be expensive.
You don't have to buy expensive curtains. Just a bolt of inexpensive fabric. A panel curtain is super easy to do yourself. Just sew a fold in the top big enough to put your rod through and hem the bottom and your done. If you don't like to sew you can use hem tape and an iron. Or if you are really lazy tight on time, just cut and hang using clip rings.
Ok so, here it is.
And, by the power of curtains, (and removing a few accessories)
Totally different look, and it really took only about 10 minutes!
I picked a charcoal gray fabric to pull from my throw pillows.
Kind of classes up the joint a little don't ya think?
