Naked to Clothed

These barren windows have driven me crazy the past 3 months. I'd bookmarked this easy peasy curtain tutorial {HERE} from Life to the "T" over a year ago and So Monday I finally decided to do something about it.
Look sewing!
Thankfully I've had a huge roll of burlap leftover from my sunroom redo {HERE}
I needed 4 panels x 8'. I kept the rustic look going and didn't sew the edges of the curtains, but I did at least iron the burlap and folded then ironed down a 1" hem at the top and bottom of each panel.
Then I ironed the hems down using Stitch Witchery...
And I used simple "O" ring clips and hung the panels. But followed Life to the T's advice and used clothespins to "train" the curtain shape overnight.
Et Voila!
I know the room needs many more things and much more work to warm things up, but baby steps are getting us there!

That turned out great! Immediately upgrades the look of the room. I can't wait to see what you come up with this room.

Thank you! They were super easy but help to soften the room =)
