Window Treatment for $10

The window over my washer & dryer was a single pane slider.  Very inefficient and cold!  I had it replaced with a nice new double pane slider and my contractor put some gorgeous white trim around it.  I'd like California shutters for a window treatment, so I didn't want to spend a lot on a temporary fix.

I had a brand new curtain rod in my shed, courtesy of the previous home owners (but you can get an Ikea Irja curtain rod for $2 or the Beskada curtain rod for $10 if you don't have a curtain rod. Or make one out of a piece of electrical conduit & some connectors).  It took two packages of curtain rings with clips  from IKEA ($8) and a twin sheet from a clearance bin at Superstore ($1.97).

I folded the sheet in half and used fusible tape all around the edges, and presto - quick, temporary window treatment that looks pretty good!

Isn't it a cool pattern?

oh and 4 years later, this "temporary" window treatment is still in place cause I absolutely LOVE it!

  5. Pretty snazzy laundry room, great idea using the sheet. I never seem to find sheets like that to use. Leave it to you to make a curtain out of a sheet to make it look so great. Happy weekend
