window treatment upcycling to the rescue
Earlier this year, the guest room/office really needed some new curtains. The ones we inherited from the previous owners were a horribly awfully unflattering dark green cotton. I hope I’m not understating just how completely unappealing they were.
But again, that pesky little budget reminded us to pinch pennies wisely. So we purchased a simple roman shade in a blue ticking stripe (source) that will be versatile enough for whatever decor happens to land in this room. Sometime. In the future.
To set off the shades, we wanted a nice topper. But what? Then I remembered removing the door panels from an old CD storage cabinet and stashing them in a closet. So why not use them here? In hindsight, the panels would have looked better had I mounted them spaced slightly from the wall rather than flush. Oh well. We’re pleased.
Another piece of unused furniture averted from the landfill. Too bad about those green curtains though…
