I've had the fabric for a few months - I bought it from Fabricland for $6/meter, but I've been waiting for my seamstress to have the time to make them :)
When Matt first hung them, the rod (that I got for free from my Mum) wasn't long enough to span the width of the wall.
Although I was happy to have curtains, I decided I wanted a longer rod. So when we were at Ikea this weekend, I bought a longer rod (for $6.99!) and new hardware. It makes SUCH a difference!
I'm in love :) Here's the before:
I love that I can push the curtains completely to the side so that more light can come in through the doors.
Don't mind the giant plant on the chair outside, I was given a planter of various types of lettuce from one of my students this week.
Fabric: $6/meter = $30
Rod and hardware: $10
