Our living room was in need of window treatments, in a major way. Please see exhibit #1.
It was a giant two panel curtain, and the price was right.
All I needed to do was take this one peice and make it into 2. Armed with my thread ripper, needle and thread I was off. I even got alittle help.
So in the end I had enough for two window swags.
And a new table runner...
All for 5 bucks and an hour (over 2 days) of my time. I can't forget to mention, the fabulous dress that I found too.
The best part is that I'm into a size smaller (I guess there are some benefits to abnormally hot summer).
I didn't actually pay $32 for this it was half off. So, after alittle on-line research I determined that I paid $17 for an $85 dress that was in great shape.
So, get out there and search your second hand stores, flea markets and garage sales, you never know what you are going to find!
Happy Treasure Hunting!!
