The longer days are busting out the energy. Here’s what I’ve been up to.
IKEA Lenda curtains had been in the dining room forever.
Then someone invented Pinterest and I had to have the ribbon trim style. A coupon from Hobby Lobby and Boom.
Thing is, I used the iron on bonding and that made the curtains stiff with the ribbon on the bottom. Not so cute. So I washed the ribbon off over Christmas break to preserve the curtains and the ribbon.
Dried them too. No bueno. They were floods until Spring. Sad.
Here they are tonight.
I hung, pinned and hemmed them one Sunday afternoon in less than 2 hours. Could’ve been much faster but I adhered the wrong two sides the first time. Classic Tiffany moving too fast. I just tugged it apart and reapplied the stichwitch. I prefer the IKEA brand so I keep it on hand.
Yes, they are a little long but I prefer that over too short. I am hopeful to add this black trim as soon as I have some time to comparison shop for tassel pricing.
In the meantime, watch young Mateo on his quest for cupcakes against Mom Linda. I thought it was honest fun.
Are you doing anything fun for Spring. I am PUMPED to clean house and enjoy the outdoors. PUMPED, yo.
