Simple DIY Curtains and Shades for 2013
Choosing the suitable curtain can be an irritating job for the housewife when she tries to obtain the best match between colors and fabrics. A modern home would be easier however, as it offers a wide variety of colors and never restricts the use of certain types of fabrics. The same technique for choosing curtains is usually followed with shades and drapes as they serve the same purpose. DIY curtains and window shades are the easiest trends for modern homes in 2013. They are inexpensive and can be easily made of old fabrics or table sheets. Before deciding on the idea, try to think of the type that matches with your window and home style. For example, the kitchen and kids’ room windows may need simpler fabrics with no patterns, but for a living room or dining room, a more sophisticated appearance is required.
Napkins and towels can be turned into window shades by stitching them with a satin ribbon, a burlap ribbon or any type of fabric that goes with the look. For a more romantic appearance, trimmed tablecloths and old organza sheets can be used. Such types are commonly used for kitchens, bathrooms, kids’ rooms, and teen bedrooms. The best DIY curtains for your living room can be made of long shawls, connected with washable fabric glue or stitched on one side to give a pair of lovely colored curtains and a sense of elegance. The same ideas can be carried out using inexpensive fabrics, either plain or patterned, and then a satin or velvet ribbon is required to enhance the look.
