|The beloved glue gun|
I have a confession to make. Many of the window treatments in my home are held together with glue from a hot glue gun. Yes, I know the basics of sewing, so don't feel sorry for me and offer to teach me. I even own a sewing machine, but I hardly ever pull it out of the closet. I have found it much easier and faster to pull out the handy-dandy hot glue gun instead.
For example, here are my kitchen curtains:
Yep - put together with the glue gun. I even don't have them on a rod or cornice board. They are put up there with nothing but upholstery tacks.
Shocking, huh? Please don't call the curtain police, even though I am guilty of more than that. Here are the curtains in my kids' bathroom:
The purchased shower curtain is extended with fabric and ribbon (attached by way of the glue gun) that match the curtain, then hemmed with - you guessed it - glue.
Even after 3 years and many long, steamy showers, none of it has budged. Incredible, huh?
Tomorrow I'll show you the latest window treatment that was put together with burlap, hot glue, and a little left-over trim. It doesn't get much cheaper than that!
