No-Sew Window Treatments

05 October 2010

Lori at Thrifty Decor Mom updated her windows with new window treatments without sewing.


Well, I've done it again.  I made more window treatments (without sewing!).  This time they were for my bay window. I have wanted to do something with this window for sew (ha! ha! - I crack myself up!) long!!  I had a picture in my OCD brain of what I wanted to do and came across a photo on a blog that I loved.  You have to check out what Marla of Always Nesting did to her bay window. This was my inspiration - thanks for all your help Marla!!  You can go here to see her window treatments.

I finally found some panels at Bed, Bath and Beyond that I liked.  But there was a problem.  They were on clearance and only had 2 left.  I needed 4 panels so what did I do?  Oh yeah, I cut those babies in half and made 4!  I also wanted tab top panels but these had a pocket for a curtain rod. So, being the creative and thrifty person that I am, I used the tie backs that came with the panels to make some tabs.  Ha! 

Hanging the panels was also a challenge.  I really couldn't do a curtain rod because of the angles and everything.  When I saw Marla's window I knew I had to use copy her idea and hang the panels from finials. Another problem.  Those finials are expensive and I needed 10 of them!!  My handyman hubby had a great idea to look in the hardware section at Lowe's.  I found some drawer knobs that I liked and they were much more affordable (about $40 for 10).

Ok, I know you are all dying to see the before and after pictures so here you go:

Here they are at night



Here's a day light picture

I can't believe how much they change the whole look of the windows!!  I absolutely love them!!  It was A LOT of hemming tape and ironing so I'm thinking that I might need to take a sewing class and finally learn how to use a dang sewing machine!


Great job on the window treatments.  They really do add to the space.  What do you think?

B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!! They really do change the look of your dining area. I especially like the idea of using drawer knobs as a less expensive option. You go girl!!!!
