Have you ever thought about taking your existing window treatments and transforming them into something fresh and new?
Everything is now being renewed, reused and repurposed in our quest for a greener future. I think it is a great idea to take those yards of fabric from your window treatments and make over into a brand new look.
If you have ever had window treatments custom made for your home, you know it is the fabric that is the most expensive part of the custom made treatments. If you use the fabric you already have, you can really save yourself a good amount of money!
One way to change the look using your current treatments are stationary versions of shades, drapes and swags. Stationary means the treatment does not function; it is just there to look pretty. Since the window treatment is not functional you don’t need as much fabric.
Or another option if you have pinched pleated window treatments currently, you have enough fabric to make new simple tab tops or clip ring window panels. My favorite redesign look right now is the simple look of window panels with grommets:
Adding other fabric pieces or trim is also a possibility to create a stylish new look:
Fabric window treatments are a great way to add color, pattern and instant style to a room. Do you still love the fabric of your curtains but feel they need a fresh, updated look? Take a look and see if they can be redesigned into something new!
