Introduction:Curtains and draperies can cost a lot of money. One way to freshen up your room is to change the look and dressing up a window is an easy way to do that.
Garland made out of flowers or leaves makes a nice decorative touch to a window and really can change the look of your room. You can even change it as the seasons change so you never get tired of the look.
Add sheer curtains under your existing curtains or drapes. If you want a specific color, consider buying white sheers and dyeing them in your washing machine. This way you can match the color exactly to what you want. Dyeing curtains is easy to do in your washing machine and saves money.
Draping a fabric scarf over the top of your curtain rod is another way to add drama to your room. You can buy fabric at the fabric store and no sewing is involved depending on what kind of fabric you buy. You can use a print that will coordinate with the existing color scheme in your room.
Visit the fabric and notions department of your local Walmart to see what kind of trims they have that might catch your eye. You can easily hand-stitch trims onto existing curtains to make them more decorative. Fabric glue is another choice and even velcro strips for trims that need to be removed before you launder the curtains.
Strands of beads make an interesting addition to a window treatment. Depending on the decor of your room, this can be a unique addition to your window and can change the look of your room.
Your home should reflect your personal style and if it makes you feel good, you should go for it. Dressing up a window is something that is easy to change if you happen to get sick of it.
