and put the ruffled draperies in their place! Yes it is a little confusing to have them in the before photo (I wonder if that is where I got the idea from?)
This was super easy, here is how I did it:
I purchased a drapery tension rod from Wal-Mart for $6.97 that would work for the 58" opening (if it was 48" or less it would of been only $2.97)
I adjusted it to the correct length and installed inside the upper track for the previous doors.
Then I cut a 3M picture hanging stripe in half, and installed it on the back of two hooks purchased from Joanns last fall on clearance (Urban Outfitters has identical ones here)
Since these aren't actual tiebacks they don't hold the entire drapery, just kinda pinch it open
I think I actually prefer that look ...
And that's it, a super easy/cheap update that took about a 1/2 hr total and only $6.97!
I have plans for new draperies for the windows ... involving Ikea. I was going to make the 3 hr. trip this weekend, but yet again they are out of stock of an item that I want, and making the trip for some and not all the items didn't make sense. So new draperies will be put on hold for at least one more week. I wish Ikea shipped more things!
I hope that you had a great weekend!
