Furnishing a house is really a big task. We are now living in this house for a year and a month and still we have a long way to go when it comes to really furnishing and decorating it. When it comes to our windows we have the blinds installed before we moved. As it was a brand new house the blinds were not included. I was thinking back then if we will just have a custom curtains installed instead of having blinds. My husband opted for the blinds because we need privacy that the window blinds can give. According to him we will just add the curtains later.
So now, the curtain project is a work in progress. I want to buy curtains from department stores but I cannot seem to find a perfect length. The styles are also limited, and it is very expensive. I was talking to a friend and she said if I want to really get the exact curtain that I like, a custom curtains is the way to go. I know it will cost money too but at least it will be a design that I like and will fit our house. I have a friend that love to sew, and she said we can make it our project while we are not yet working outside home. I will buy the textile and she will sew it for me. I think this is a good idea. I can buy inexpensive textile and also get discount for buying in bulk. I will just pay for the labor and in the process I can also learn how to sew. What do you think? Sounds like a plan, right?
