In other news, I finally got all my curtain stuff straighted out. Yeah!
I got all the rods and clips at IKEA. The rods were $6.99 each and I bought three. However, I am only using two of them, so I will put the other one away for another window project later.
Here's the cool part about my curtain project. I bought 10 yards of burlap at JoAnn's yesterday and used a 40% off coupon for it. It was regular $2.99/yd. Then, there was a sale for this really pretty beaded trim that normally went for $12.99/yd. It was also 40% off. Then, I used two gift cards that had been given to me for my *ahem* anniversary. Wanna know what the total cost of my kitchen curtains (fabric and trim only) came out to be?
$9.44! How cool is that? Add the hardware and it comes to a total of $23.44 for everything! I'm so excited about this.
At the moment it looks like this:
You wouldn't believe the trouble we've had with the corner connection pieces. Let's just say that a blow torch was involved, okay? Oh, and let us not forget to mention the pipe cutter that I learned to use today, very fun.
Here's the mess of clips I still have to deal with.
I'm going to add the clips and sheers tonight if I get a chance. I will begin working on the burlap part tomorrow sometime.
For now, here's a pic of the Jack 'O Lantern that I carved out on Saturday:
