Guest Bedroom: The Saga Continues (Part 1)

Pretty sure I've been talking about this guest bedroom re-do for MONTHS now and I'm excited that I finally have SOME progress. I've been moving slow - one, I have a full-time job and some busy weekends this summer; two, all of this costs money and we've been spending quite a bit on some other "high priority home needs." But, on to the updates!

First, I've added some no-sew curtains. If you're interested in doing no-sew curtains, read step-by-step directions on how I did my first ones or just Google how to do it. Hem tape is super-easy to use. I found some fabric that I absolutely loved on Fabric.com. It's called Midwest Modern Optic Blossom Linen (say that three times fast) by Amy Butler and I think I'm in lurve.

The hubby loved approved of it, too, and lucky us it was on sale. It was normally $9.99/yard, which isn't too bad, but I had to order 5 yards and was trying to do this on a budget. The sale price was $7.18, plus a 10% off coupon code I found online and free shipping and I was sold.

And here's the final product:

I'm pretty excited to have spent 75 bucks on the curtains ($38 for the fabric, $37 for the curtain rod and rod clips from Tarjay), especially considering others I had researched on Etsy and otherwise would have cost upwards of $150.

Will post the other update tomorrow! Y'all come back now.
