Simple curtain switch up

March 15, 2011

When we moved into our house we had zero window treatments. No blinds, no shades, and no curtains. So we needed a quick solution and these simple white curtains seemed to work fine. (and yes, that is snow outside...winter is still hanging around our house).

But something about them always bugged me. They were never quite right.
And then one day it dawned on me what I needed to do to fix them. Enter ring clips. For only $5, these clips transformed our curtains and made them fit in better with the style of the room. I just folded down the tabs of the curtain and clipped them. I'll probably end up cutting the white tabs off, but for now it works.

Here's a shot of both the windows. The curtains hang a lot better now too.

Apparently everyone had to be in the picture. Wrigley is wondering why I'm taking pictures instead of taking him on a walk like I promised.
Oh and before I forget, I've been meaning to post about this cute "R" my mom gave us the last time she visited. I adore it. Thanks mom!
