If you follow the Nester, then you have seen her window mis-treatments. I have been mistreating my windows for several years now, but didn't know there was a term for it. I always rigged them up. But I like the sound of Window Mis-treatments much better. Thrifty Decor Chick mistreats, too. Those two girls complete me.
I know ya'll will be so glad when I talk about something other than my Lipstick Kitchen. I'm almost done...so bear with me another week or so.
I told you about the new fabric I bought for the kitchen mis-treatments. I knew I didn't want anything fancy or complicated...just panels on each side of the two windows.
When I do panels, I like to use 3 yards for each panel. I like them long enough to puddle on the floor, and three yards gives you enough if you want to use the Fold, Clip, & Poof method.
Even though the fabric was $12/yard, we were talking about $144, and I didn't want to part with that much moo-la. And after thinking about it for a minute, I really didn't have the space for a full 54" wide panel on each side of the 2 windows.
So I ordered 7 yards so I knew I would have enough to work with, plus have extra on hand, and I would cut the 54" width in half.
Three steps in the Fold, Clip and Poof mistreatment method:
1. Cut 3 yards
2. Cut width in half
3. Fold, clip, and Poof!
oh wait, is that 5 steps? Whatever!
I love it when a plan comes together.
