Monday, I ran to the Family Dollar Store to see about some small curtain rods so I could get a move on with making the curtains and getting them hung up. I was surprised to see they also had the paper shades. They didn't have the rods I was looking for but they did have the tension rods. I knew I didn't want the curtains to go on the inside of the windows as that is where the paper shades go. The only problem with the tension rods is they don't have brackets. So I put on my thinking cap and headed to the hardware section and yes they had cup hooks. I grabbed a pack and a box cutter and back to grab 4 curtain rods. Yes the cup hooks would work they were the perfect size.
Tuesday, I went with a friend to Bed, Bath and Beyond and after looking a several colors, I, did settle on a deep purple so grabbed up what I needed and even found the rugs to match. As we walked around the store I spotted a comforter set at a really good price so grabbed that too. Then we headed off to lunch and talked till we realized they were waiting for us to leave so they could close haha. Didn't know they closed after lunch.
So today was the big push to get done. I pulled out the iron and ironing board. I had to iron the material around the edges so I could sew the pocket for the rod. The material had already been sewn around the edges so that was nice. It took me no time at all to whip up the curtains. I put the hooks up and pulled the rubber ends off the rods so I could slide the rod into the hooks and put the rubber tips back on. Walla! Next thing I need is to get new light fixtures but for the most part that room is done.
One of my friends made me a horse shoe towel holder and I put it to the left of the sunburst and a little higher up for the big bath sheet
Anthony, said he is free tomorrow and Friday so we will get the bedroom done or at least started. That's if he wakes up early enough as he is doing a grave yard shift tonight and if I can even move in the morning as I am pretty done in from all the running this week and then the work today
Good Night All
