OMG, so I tried that mind into roman curtains frugal idea... love it!
Of course I used flat sheets, lol. My youngest DD's mini-blinds get wrecked instantly. I have no idea what they do to them. Mini-blinds are the bane of my existance but generally the cheapest window treatment I can find.
Would have looked better if I took my time but I just wanted to try it out before I invest a bunch of time into it. Since no one in our house actually uses flat sheets I always have a bunch around. These actually match teh fitted sheets on DDs bed. Perfect!
The blinds look awesome, way to go! I love the colors looks so geat!
I wish I had some extra sheets around. We have just 1 set for each bed. I was eyeing my bedroom blinds as well, but I have to find some cheap fabric first, I have some offwhite, but I really need a floral or stripe or maybe polka dot to go in there. the offwhite wouldn't work with the white curtains. Maybe I'll head by the discount curtain store and check out the $4 rack or GW- although a lot of times it is not the best deal there. Free would be best, but I cannot think of anything around here. I dont keep a lot of clutter around.
I didn't think we actually had one in my area(last I seen closest was 1.5hrs) however I just checked and now there is one in my town(well the closest town). I signed up to be part of the group, we have some things that I would love if other people could use as well. I am trying to think who would get rid of top sheets.... mil has a ton of extra everything, but she is a hoarder. Will have to think on that one. You ladies are inspiring me to try and figure out some creative ways to finish a couple of rooms around here! The thing is generally I don't have extra things to repurpose- for one we had a fire 2 yrs ago and lost everything and 2- I abhor clutter
