I SHALL NOT USE MY
HOOVES AS HANDS


I am so excited to find a place to share my latest project!

My husband and I recently purchased our first place and we wanted to get our window coverings up as soon as possible. I created my own mock roman valances (five total) and installed them for 1/5 of the cost of having someone professionally make them.

I have the ones installed in the kitchen below. There are three more of these (including one 72" shade) in my living room.

How did you do that. Seriously. I would love to make one of my own. Amazing.

Huge question to ask all of you guys -- do any of you have any recommendations of how to do a slipcover for the Ikea Klippan 2 seat sofa? I am not a fan of the colors and I was hoping to make my own.

No pattern exists online. The Bemz company sells them, but I do not want to pay $150 for a cover when I can make it myself for cheaper.

How does one go about doing this the best way?

What a brilliant idea. Thank you! I love the "As Is" section. I'll definitely check that out once per week until I can find one :)
