Happy Wednesday, Friends! It's time for another 15 Minute Fix and today I'm sharing a simple, thrifty project I've added to my craft room...
It's no secret how much I adore lovely vintage linens. I've shared several posts on how I repurpose them in my home. Last summer when I gave my tiny laundry room a much needed makeover, I used a vintage tablecloth as a curtain to beautify plain utility storage shelves. You can see the laundry room here, and the tablecloth curtain here.
As I shared in my last post, I'm in the process of updating my craft room. I often come across sweet orphan vintage pillowcases during my thrifting jaunts. I've picked up quite a few for .25 which inspired me to put them to work in the craft room. Plus, I have a simple tutorial that requires absolutely no sewing! All you need is a pair of scissors, a spring tension curtain rod and pillowcases--how many will vary according to your specific needs. Below, I used three for a 39" space and as you can see, I prefer the orphaned mismatched look. Of course, matching pairs could be used; either way the cases do need to be the same length.
Now the pretty curtains are hiding my not-so-pretty stash of craft frames. Remember, I'll be sharing specific projects as I update the room with a grand reveal at the end, so you'll see how everything fits together. Ready to see how I made them?
All I did was cut the corners off of the closed end of the pillowcase which leaves curved openings as pictured. Start small, it can always be cut deeper, but it only needs to be large enough for the rod to fit through....
