A quickie

A quick post for a quick project! We have a bathroom in our bedroom and the shower ha a window. When the dun come up it shines it right in your face and wakes you up!

That is no fun at 5AM! When we forget to shut the door before bed its a grumpy morning for whoever wake up to the blinding sun!

I have TONS of fabric you know... o I decided I would make some curtains. I got the rod at Big Lots for $2.50, and I had the fabric that I got for something like $.80 a yard.

I measured my window it was about 42 inches so I decided to make the curtain 88 inches long.

I then measured the width and added 3 inches for the bottom hem and the top. I made a small 1/4" hem at the bottom and at the top I folded it over about 1/4" and then about 1.5 or 2 inches to fit the small rod.

The whole thing took about 30 mins and now we don't have to remember to shut the door or go blind1

Total cost: $3.20
