Don't wash your curtains!

I was being very productive on Monday....I cleaned the house, did 7 loads of laundry, cleaned the storage room, name it, i did it.

As I moved into the kitchen, I vacuumed all the cobwebs off the walls {and no, there were not Halloween decorations}...then I thought I would take down the curtains and wash them....well, that turned into a whole new project.

This is what they looked like when I put them back up

Seriously, they shrunk like 6" off the floor. {I hemmed them when I bought them because they were WAY too long}

So, now what am I going to do? I'm not going to have my curtains 6" off the floor. I could add a border on the bottom, but it would look kind of dumb. Then it hit me. The perfect solution.

About a month ago I was at Hobby Lobby and they had a piece of upholstery fabric on clearance for $2/yard. I bought a yard. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. But now I know.

I cut the curtains about 10" down from the top and added this.....

The top and bottom borders are denim and the middle is the upholstery fabric I got at Hobby Lobby. I LOVE them! They are perfect and even cuter than they were before I washed them.

and now they touch the floor again!
