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 :)

Window valance using raw fabric, ring clips and curtain tie backs (no-sew)

This is my super quick fix for a window covering in my kitchen. I bought some remnant fabric at Hobby Lobby. I used four ring clips and four curtain tie backs I already had to hang it.  On the fabric, the salvage edge was frayed but sewn so it wouldn't run any further, so I used that as the bottom edge.

To finish off the two side and top edges, I sealed them with a lighter (slightly melting the very edge to stop from fraying...luckily the fabric type allowed for that).

The clips are evenly placed about an inch down from the top edge (just pinch & clip).  Hopefully the photo helps explain that visually.

I then hug them on these curtain tie backs I had.  Another idea instead of curtain tie backs is cabinet knobs (see my previous post for how to).  Or even decorative hooks!
