new prim curtains in my dining room :)

Hello all,
I have really been wanting a change in my dining room. The old curtains that came with the house were more country than prim. I kept looking at your blogs, Country Sampler and of course hitting the Primitive Place forum for ideas. I finally decided to buy 8 yards of osnaburg fabric from JoAnn Fabrics with my 50% off coupon and a gift card I had gotten for my bday. So, for $16.00 I got new curtains. All I did was cut the 8 yards in the middle to make 2 very long pieces. I flipped the material up over the curtain rod and pulled them to the side with homespun. I then stapled the homespun to the window trim and then finished it off with a rusty star. I really love them. They look great during the day with the sunshine coming through. I love no-sew projects.
Have a great day, Kim
