I mean, except for that one night that there was a dance party. Of course, of course I didn't hangout in the living room with the lights on and twerk or anything (but maybe that dance party really happened). My mom came to the rescue. Between the two of us, we sewed four full-length curtains. Cue our mad pioneer skills!
Real talk: curtains are expensive. It's ridiculous how much stores charge you for hemmed fabric. Our solution was go to JoAnn's and buy some curtain liner (which is thicker than a lot of the curtains you will buy in the store). I purchased enough to make the four panels and had some to spare. My total cost was about $42 with a coupon.
Sewing curtains is made up of a series of folding, ironing, sewing, and repeating. It's not hard, but it sort of time consuming.
As per the usual, Peanut was on-hand to help me with each step. Here she is in all of her turkey-posing glory!
The finished product! While this isn't the most glamorous project, I can now do exciting things like watch Game of Thrones, knit, or read a book in the living room at night with a light on!
