Bedroom Makeover on a Budget
Turn a bleak extra bedroom into a chic guest room with our creative shopping tips and stylish projects you can do yourself.
The trend in designer window treatments is to hang the hardware above the molding and let the drape billow slightly. So why haven’t the big box stores caught on? These crisp white window panels were a great find, but even at 95 inches, they weren’t long enough. (Kim’s ceilings are more than 9-feet tall.)
To extend them and get a custom look, we trimmed the panels 10 inches and added a 2-foot band of color across the bottom. (We found an extra 5 yards of fabric in the remnant bin.) All it took was a straight cut (kitchen floor tiles work great as a measuring tool) and a straight seam on the sewing machine.
Grommet Top Window Panels $24.99 to $29.99 (each) Available at Target
