I raised our curtain rod a few months ago in order to maximize the light coming through the window. I read a post on Young House Love about how hanging your rods high and wide creates the illusion of a bigger window and a brighter room. They were right, they are so smart!
Unfortunately raising the curtain rod gave us this issue.
The 84 inch curtains were too short. I lived with it for awhile, but it was starting to really bother me.
I thought about adding some fabric to the bottom, but I wasn’t sure that would look quite right.
I gazed at 96 inch curtains online for months… they ranged from $50 per panel to $150 per panel. Bummer.
I fell head over heels in love with these pretty curtains from Anthropologie.
I mean, what is not to love, white curtains with fun ball fringe. Totally fun! But $98 per panel.
Imagine my elation when I was meandering through Target and spotted a pair of plain white 95 inch curtains. It was too good to be true. I had looked and looked, this was the first time Target had carried anything longer than an 84 inches. I did a happy dance all the way to my car at the price. $14.99 per panel. No lie.
I gathered my supplies the next day and commenced with my curtain transformation. Straight pins, ball fringe, and my simple 95 inch panels.
With in 20 minutes I had pinned the ball fringe down the side and stitched it on.
Voila, cute ball fringe curtains for about $20 per panel. That is a savings of about $160! I am so elated with them. They have only been up for four days and every time I look at them I get really really happy.
