Remember this post Tessa did way back when about pom pom curtains? I’ve always had it bookmarked thinking one day I would purchase some for my daughter’s room. That post was in January and now here I am in July thinking maybe I should finally put some drapes up in her room.
I love these blackout ones from Pottery Barn Teen:
But, (there’s always a but!) at 119.00 PER panel, I just couldn’t justify the expense. And of course, a little voice in my head (it’s always there!) says, “Ikea, Ikea…Ritva drapes”.
Yesterday, I told you about my love for the Ritva curtains from Ikea. So I came up with a cost saving idea:
Ritva Drapes priced at 34.99 PER two panels
A little bit of this….
some cheap blackout lining–this is a must. I don’t want my five year old waking up when the sun comes up! I found mine at Jo Ann’s fabric priced at 6.99 a yard but it was half off with a coupon.
a crafty mom!
For approximately 42.00, I
my mom intend to copy the very expensive Pottery Barn curtains. Good timing that I’m dropping my kids off at my parent’s house next week for them to watch, while Mr. B and I enjoy some time to ourselves. Don’t worry mom, I will make it up to you!
Can’t wait to show you the final result! Enjoy the weekend.
