Day 20: Homier Home = Curtains!

I have ao enjoyed my neater arrangement in my entry-way. It feels good to be rid of all the empty boxes and to have a bit more freedom in our space there.

I feel so much better upon walking in to my house when the first glance in is more pleasant and welcoming.

Today I tackled a bit more of the cluttered look by making a curtain to go over the half depth part of the open shelving.

We had some old sheets of unknown origin (maybe they came on a mattress we bought?) and some leftover fabric from the curtain I made for the sliding glass door in the bedroom a couple years ago. I tore up the sheet, cut the fabric down, measured the area, and bought a tension rod earlier this month.
So today all I had to do was sew. It took about an hour to pin, sew, and hang the curtain. It was quite fun to take a bunch of old stuff we had sitting around and turn it into something to make our house homier.

I turned this:

Next up for the entryway spruce-up is another curtain for the lower, full-depth portion to hide the cat-food, litter-box and other random clutter.

  1. Hi! I got an email alert saying you are following my blog. Cool! I like the idea behind the 31 Days to Focus and Refresh. In fact, I have spent this weekend doing nothing pressing…..and instead relaxing and refocusing. I am feeling refreshed. :) I hope you are, too!

    So I love to organize spaces, and it looks like you at least like organizing spaces. They look great! I look forward to your next post!
