Food for thought for the Longest Friday -- Windowdressing

I was determined to get my bedroom repainted by summer and I just finished today with a little help from a friend -- thanks Bet! What I am most proud of this time is that I did a little window dressing on the cheap. 

Half price curtains each 60'' wide -- £21
Pelmet made from two table runners each 72'' long in a toning colour £8
Curtain tape and fringe £16

Total £45

Bet did the sewing!

It's a sunny  and rosey look for mid summer and I am very pleased with my little self for seeing the potential in those bargain table runners :)

Thought: Never think what a thing is FOR only what it can be used for. My house is full of little tricks like that. After all , who cares? It is all just window dressing! 

What's your favourite inventive thing in your house?
