My Most Pinned Project
Do you ever look back at old pictures and think, "What was I thinking when I asked for that haircut?" but a moment later feel better when you realize how great your thighs looked in those shorts? I had one of those moments when an image from a post I wrote two years ago, Easiest Window Update Ever started getting a lot of attention on Pinterest.
I cringe when I see the state of my dining room at the time, but I'm cheered up by the fact that so many people were inspired by the idea-using tablecloths as an inexpensive alternative to curtain panels. As I mentioned in the post, tablecloths are the perfect solution when you don't have a big budget but your windows are bare. Not only are they affordable, but they are available in a large assortment of colors, patterns and lengths and they can be laundered.
A word of caution though: Shrinkage. Avoid that problem by buying your "panels" in a length slightly longer than what you'll need for your windows and prewash them. Sadly, mine shrunk, but I can still use the tablecloths for their intended purpose. Hmmm, now that I think about it, I could make pillows out of them, recover seat cushions....Excuse me now, I have DIYing on the brain.
