Little Yellow House: DIY Curtains

When we first moved into the house the number one priority was curtains. But I could never find prints I really wanted myself so I knew from day 1 I would have to make them myself.

I follow the tutorial by Design Sponge. The one thing I would say is that the pleating tape was pretty difficult to work with. If I made pleated drapes again, I think I would just try to them from scratch – the old fashioned way. My mom tried to convince me to do the that way to begin with, but I didn’t listen 😉

Just as a reminder – I have one very very large window in the living room (17 feet long!). and then I have one window that is connected in the dinning room. So I needed an economical solution for the 17ft window on the curtain rod. If I bought a curtain rod in the store it would be so expensive. So instead I bought a 20 foot copper pipe. Yep a 20ft pipe! Then I jazzed it up with fun Restoration Hardware ends. I like that it mixed copper and brass and it was economical!
