Cheap CurtainsWhen we moved into this house, I did not have a lot of money to spend on new decor. The black metal curtain rod and the black metal tie-backs were already on the sliding door. I did not like the curtains that the previous homeowners had up, so I got rid of them, but kept the hardware.
I bought two of the crinkly camel-colored panels, and two of the wine-colored beaded valances at Lowe's. Both the panels and the valances have a pocket to slide onto a rod, but I used ring clips to catch the top of both fabrics because I wanted to be able to easily slide them open and closed.
Sometime later I ran across the strings of beads. I just draped them around the ring clips. It adds a little more sparkle and interest to some otherwise plain window treatments.
And at Christmas (a year ago) I bought two tassels in the Christmas ornaments at Hobby Lobby for half off. I think I paid about $2 for each tassel. They added just a little more interest.
I have some windows in my house that are in desperate need of some interest and sparkle. I think my studio might be next. After all, that is Francesca's room. I just know that she would like pretty window treatments!
