Frugal? Well, that's putting it nicely.
This picture pretty much sums it up:
|Frugal is just one word for it.|
Stingy is probably a more accurate
term, and of course cheap also applies.
Instead of chucking it, we chose to repurpose it into something for our place -- a curtain rod!
Why not? Those things cost too much money, anyway. I've been wanting to make some curtains for a while now, so that was the perfect impetus.
|I had some clearance rack curtain hooks that I spray-painted copper to match.|
|First I painted the door (with free paint left in our basement)|
|Then I used no-sew hem tape to make these curtains (sorry mom). I |
DO have a sewing machine, but it scares the bejesus out of me. Ironic,
considering both my mother and m-in-law are amazing seamstresses.
|Close up. I used less-than-$1 copper pipe |
holders in place of a curtain-rod bracket.
|Totally unrelated bed-head photo. Just |
because I couldn't resist. Isn't he munchable?
