Decorating: Different Living Room Window Treatments

Yesterday, my mother-in-law Darlene and I went into Bend for lunch and shopping.  Our first stop was at Big Lots.  I didn't even know that Bend had a Big Lots.  That shows you what a shopper I am.  I guess it just opened up a couple of months ago, to be fair to me.

Anyway, I have been wanting to get new drapes and new blinds.  I was so happy that I found everything I wanted for only $50.00!   Here are a couple of "before" window treatments:

You are so creative...and all in one day! My living room and dining room window treatments were ready to be replaced. I bought fabric and have been sewing for weeks! LOL Hoping to have it finished up this weekend. Won't look as good as yours, though. *sigh*

Hi Lisa,

When I am in the mood for this kind of stuff, I love it and it is fun.

It has taken me 6 years to get the house the way I want it ... it is ever evolving. My sister-in-law is giving us a nice bed for the spare room and after we get that in I will be done ... except for painting.

I can't wait to see your new window treatments, they will be beautiful ... I hope that you will post a picture for us. That is so neat that you are making them yourself!
