Home Improvement

I still haven't invited my friends with a drill over to help me put up the curtain rod properly. The bare windows with mismatched blinds were bugging me, so I did something about them. I wanted tension fitted rods that the cats can pull down without making any more holes in the walls. IKEA delivered, as usual.

I got three Trolig tension fitted rods and two sets of Matilda curtains. Then I sewed the tabs down to make pockets for the rods and hung them up. Now I'm waiting to see if I like them long, or if I'll cut them so that they hang just right above the radiators.

The third rod I put up in the third window next to the bed and hung the blue blind back there. I'm not entirely happy with the colour nor the fabric, but until I decide what to do, it will suffice.
