Burlap Curtains (Potato Sack Style)

Bonjour tout le monde....!!!
{That's French for "hello everyone...!!!!"}

 Congratulations to me....




I finally got some window coverings done in the laundry-room today...!!
YEEE~HAAA!!!! 
{Maybe I should say:  Congratulations to the laundry-room...!!!hahahaha..!!} 

This is cause for celebration, as we have lived in this house 
for eight~and~a~half years now...!!
Embarrassing....., I know.....  :-(
We never had any window coverings, curtains, blinds, or anything before today....!!!  :-)
{With only cows as neighbors, it did not seem like a great priority.... }
But now we do...!!!
 Aaahhhh....  {a sigh of relief....}

All I did was drape some potato sacks over a rake...
{yes, you heard right....}  NO SEWING!!!!!

I kinda folded them how I liked....
Tied some ropes around to keep things in place...
And VOILA...!!!!
{more French lingo... heeheehee}
They have a little bit of a print flaw or burlap "irregularity" here and there,
but not distracting at all......
In fact,.....I think it really adds.....


I kinda like 'um....
The potato sacks are from right here...
Aren't they cute.... And EASY...

If I knew how to take pictures with the back-lighting of the shade open, you could have enjoyed our view of miles and miles of farmland.... Ahhhh...... it's lovely and peacefulll...... Sorry....:-( I'll have to work on my photography skills I guess....

I like the rope. That really is a great finishing touch!
Nice work!
I am glad it involved no sewing. Makes it so nice when you don't have to pull out your sewing machine.!
