Like everyone, when we moved into our house I looked on Pinterest for decorating tips. One of the reoccurring tips was to hang your curtains higher to create the sense of bigger windows. Cool, that seemed easy enough. Wrong! I couldn't find curtains long enough and the long curtains I did find were way more than I wanted to spend. So, this was my solution. I made them...Kind of.
I am not fancy enough to make new curtains from scratch. So, I went and bought four grey Threshold curtains from Target and one white Threshold curtain. Same style and fabric, just a different color.
I measured and cut near the top of the grey curtains. Measured how long I wanted my curtains to be and cut white strips from the white curtains accordingly (accounting for the length that would be used to sew the seam). Then, I sewed the three pieces (two grey, one white) together. Bam, my long curtains were done! It took me a couple of hours and saved me bunch of money. I love the way they turned out.
