However, the love for my house has not blinded me to the fact that its not perfect. Take, for example, our master bedroom. Our master is actually a tiny bit smaller than Audrey's bedroom. Add in that there are *four* doors in our bedroom (one entrance door, one closet door, one bathroom door and one door onto our rooftop patio), and all those door eat up floor space. Which means we really don't have a lot of furniture placement options in our bedroom and have to be very thoughtful when choosing our furniture.
When we sold the old house we also sold our old bedroom set because it would not fit in this room. In fact any traditional headboard would have taken up too much space in our room. So I had to get a little creative. And, as always, I had to do it on the cheap.
Here is what we did...
- two sheer curtain tab top panels that were on clearance at JYSK for $5 each (I couldnt have made them myself for that price)
- one curtain rod also from JYSK for just under $10
- two packages of icicle lights on clearance at target, 70%off, paid $10 for both sets
- one dimmer switch a little under $10 from Wal-Mart
- drill, screws, and hooks- on hand
|What you will need|
|Our lovely blank grey wall|
|That Guy being so handy. He's becoming a lot like my first celebrity crush|
... Bob Vila. Not. Even. Kidding.
Then That Guy spaced the second row a few inches under where the hanging "icicles" ended.
|Putting in the second row of hooks.|
|Okay, I admit, it doesn't look very pretty right now.|
Then we added the curtains to the curtain rod and hung it on the hardware That Guy had already installed.
|Ah! There is the pretty factor I was going for!|
