The other curtain is finally up! Neutral grayish-blue pale fabric was my choice since my first curtain was....
Love the fabric, but hate is as a window covering for the bedroom. Especially if the window fills two large walls. It's limiting my bedding choices. If you're planning to have a pattern fabric for your curtains, consider the other print in your room too - bedding, upholstery, etc. They should compliment, not clash. And the only thing that would not clash with my previous curtain are browns, beige, and muted green, with minute patterns! So not me.
Which lead me to the decision of using a very neutral fabric, perfect background for all the colors and patterns I love.
(The vanity now lives on the other side of the room where the frames used to be -see here. The white dresser is the new nightstand.)
Here's the answer to the post title.
Yep, I used ring binders and clips from none other than National Bookstore. :) I always wanted the clips I see around blogland, but I don't think we have it here. Well, I didn't even ask since I've got this crazy idea of using those two office supplies. It worked like a charm! But I don't recommend it as a permanent solution especially if you intend to open and close the curtains regularly. The fabric will let loose if you're not careful. This is just a cheap temporary DIY solution to any bare window. You can clip flat sheets or any other fabric, think of the possibilities!
I intended to spray paint the pole, rings, and clips, but I do not have the time. Besides, I kinda like the peek of different colors up there.
This wall is pretty much done (which is mostly window anyway). On to the other three!
