It’s DIY day at Kimba’s!
I regularly show you my thrift store finds and tell you that I’m going to do this or that with it. However, it is often so long before I do anything, if at all, that you may wonder if it ever gets done. I’ll be honest, sometimes it doesn’t. But sometimes it does, even if it is months later.
Back in February I found these Pottery Barn panels at Goodwill for $4/pr. They were only 63”, so I said I’d do something to fix that.
Then in September I got this fringed bedskirt for about $7, and said I had plans for it.
And yes, I’m only showing one side because that’s all I have done so far. The point is, I did something. So, $11 for
what will be a pair of custom curtain panels. I could make all kinds of excuses, like I know it looks a little heavy on the bottom, and I wanted to put the ruffled bedskirt part at the top but it was much, much easier this way, and that I know I should try to find some kind of fancy trim to put at the joining seam.
But you know what? Sometimes it’s okay to be content with “good enough”. I don’t call myself a lazy seamstress for nothing!
