Sticking to my New Year's Resolution with creating one "Pin" per week.
My Pinterest Stats for Week 2: 24 boards/914 pins/63 likes
Pinned #2: This is a photo (*below) pinned to my "The House that Love Built" pinboard because this room just sings out "AMANDA". So what I loved most is the vintage handkerchief curtains, they bring all the colors together and add such whimsy to the room. Perfect for my craft room.

What you need:
White Cotton Fabric
Red Ric Rac trim
My first problem was finding a curtain rod that was nearly 9 ft. long at a reasonable price. Waiting at the hardware store for my husband near the plumbing section I "eyed" the pvc pipe. PERFECT!
The piece of pipe was cut down to fit just right and I installed the mounting brackets. Total cost of curtain hardware was around $15.00 total.
|Four Vintage Handkerchiefs sewn in two strips.|
I already had some handkerchiefs sewn together (4 handkerchiefs on each strip.) So I just added the white cotton to the top and the bottom of each strip.
|I am falling in love with Ric Rac.|
And Viola! Less than an hour and I just added so much vintage charm to my craft room.
|Now I am going to have to change the lampshade to match the curtains.|
Hope this inspires you to make your own curtains. If you need any help, please feel free to message me.
Also plan on entering this project for the Window Treatments Contest at The CSI Project.
