Gimme More

I’m too cheap to buy another rod.You gonna make something of it? My high heels are sharper than yours.
These are from Katie at Harrington House. She did a fine job of mistreating these! $he must be rich, $he has rods. $weet!
And a few days later she did these too! If you look real close you see her raw edges! That’s my girl!! Who cares? They are silk, they are captivating!! When you go to her blog you can see her old treatments next to the new ones. Also, she was so excited to take pictures of her pretties that she didn’t even move her trusty drill–I know we would be close friends in real life. Notice that she raised her rod–great idea to make the room look bigger and for such impact at the window!
I also have to mention this amazing candle wall sconce with crystals!!!! A girl after my own heart!

Also, speaking of heels {were we even speaking of heels?}. You must read about Angelena’s shopping adventures. You will laugh, you will cry, you will wish that you were her and training for a triathlon and named Angelena. Does everyone in the world with the name Angelena have a perfect body? Hate her.


  1. Nester–what did you use to hang those rodless curtains with? The main thing that has been holding me back from getting my windows mistreated FINALLY (after almost 2 yrs…but I live in rural OK, 1/10th of a mile from the road, so no one can see in, lol), has been the whole “rod” issue. I’ve got curtains. I’ve got fabric. I’ve got lots of STUFF. But I need to find some way to get it to stay up there. I’ve got the rings. I need help. Help me Nester, Help me!

    (or as my Southern upbringing requires–


    (imagine this as I flutter to and fro, hands a wavin’ every which way, finally settling on my brow as I fall back into my “Mama Bear chair” recliner…)

    There, set the stage.

    Btw, chaos is oncoming–severe winter weather later this week. Amazing how much JUNK gets hauled in when the firewood gets brought in!

  2. I absolutely love these window treatments! I just moved into a new house and want to make my own curtains because I cant find any that I really like and plus I am on a budget!! I want to make some like this but dont know where to start besides finding the fabric that I like. Could someone give me some instructions on how to make these??? Thanks!


  1. […] If you really want to do this on a budget, then check out how cute The Nester made these draperies look without even using a curtain rod. Oh, and she also hot glues trim to her edges on occasion […]

  2. […] mistreated my shower. We don’t have a window and I had this fabric that I used in my dining room in our old house. The lower shower rod is bolted into the wall. It was here when we moved in. If it […]
