$5 and 15 minutes later

Where have I been?? Well, I'll save that for another post! I just want to share my quick, cheap and painless living room curtain makeover!

I have been working on adding punches of creamy lime green to my red and black living room just for fun! I didn't want to sew anything additional to my plain red target curtain panels, at the off-chance that I didn't like it! So, I found fun ball fringe at Hobby Lobby in the perfect creamy lime green. I purchased 2 yards (paid about $2.87) I already had on hand a roll of 1/2" wide black/white polka dot ribbon ($3.99 @ Hobby Lobby OR $2 when they run their 50% off sale!). Those 2 things, plus a box of straight pins, and I have new curtains!!

Stay tuned for more decorating fun I've had lately that include, our master bedroom/bathroom makeover, baby nursery (for foster babies), and more additions of creamy lime green throughout the living room and dining room!

What a great transformation! I love making simple objects a little more special - and ribbon is one of my favorite ways!
