Call it a compilation of all the crazy projects I've come up with over the years. Call it a how-to for things around the house. Call it whatever you like :) It's what I do everyday. My blog is really just a way for me to share what I've learned over the years about home improvement, interior design, organization, diy, crafting and home repair. And most importantly it comes from always working on a budget and forever wanting to fend for myself when it comes to anything. I hope you enjoy (and learn a few things along the way :)

One way to elevate the height of your windows

So we all know we are supposed to hang our drapes to the ceiling now, but what if you already had your drapes hung lower? Why not add a piece of iron or a wall plaque over the window to help make it look higher. Then you don't have to buy new drapes or add a piece of fabric to the ones you have now AND you don't have to move the rod and patch wall holes!

This is in my master.  I only used one panel because the windows flank my bed.

These pieces came from my old house where I had half-round windows over my windows in my living room. Had to use them somewhere :) 

There is a space between the rod and the piece.  Jut couldn't capture it with the glare from the window.  Wait until you hear what I made the curtain rod out of (that's another post).
