Thrifty Thursday - Teacher Style is back! I know you all understand how busy December can be.
What a week - it is a challenge to get back into the 'school day' sleep schedule (not that I stayed up that late every night), reminding the kiddos about the classroom expectations, and especially the long stretch without a break.
This week I'm showing you a thrifty project that I was able to complete during Christmas vacation. I've been wanting to update a few things in my kitchen for awhile. As I searched the stores for the just right window treatments nothing popped out and shouted, "Take me home!"
So, that led me to making my own. I probably spent more time searching Pinterest for inspiration than it took to actually make the window treatments. Anyone else ever have that happen?
Here is what I came up with. I decided how long I wanted the valance and added several inches to make the tucks. I sewed my valances but I saw many no sew window treatments. The major time consumer was ironing all the seams to prep for sewing. This is a step I wouldn't skip.
Finally, hubs mounted the valance about eight inches above the window trim. I like the look of the taller window. Total cost for three windows - $13.00 and about two hours of my time. I know not all Walmart stores carry fabric, we are fortunate to have fabric at our local store.
I would encourage you to take a little time and update the look of a window or two in your house! You'll be as pleased as I am!
