Nursery Decorating Episode 2

Last summer I was looking for a little nursery inspiration. I was browsing through one of my House Beautiful magazines when I lighted upon these curtains by Pine Cone Hill:

There was only one thing I wasn't loving about them. They cost $128.oo.

Ridonculous, I says.
I can make those myself, says I.

So I went to Target, bought some sheers for ten bucks, then went to JoAnn's where I bought white pom pom trim. I had a half off coupon so that cost $12.75. I snatched a rod from Ross for fifteen more bones and I was golden.

I took my trim

and my sheers which I don't have a picture of,

and waved my magic wand (aka: the sewing machine) which I also don't have a picture of,

and these were born:

For cheap knock offs, I don't think they turned out so bad.
One hundred and twenty eight dollars my foot.

I love it!!! We're facing a curtain dilemma and between your and kim's post, I have so many ideas!! Good for you for not paying those high prices...gotta stick to 'em.

Kimba said...

Are you kidding me?! Dude. I buy $20 plain ole blue curtains and you made your own with freakin' POM POMS on it. I think you're messin' with me!

Cutest thing ever. $128, take that!

Can I just tell you how cute your baby and your baby skills are. I love it! Oh, I saw this Blog network widget on your blog and I love that idea. I networked mine and the cooking blog. Thanks for sharing.

Um, H no I didn't make those with a newborn around. Are you kidding me? Have I even brushed my teeth today? I don't even know!

No, I did all decorating before she was born and just haven't gotten around to posting until now.
