We had recessed lighting put in the basement(we are totally on a kick) and now I have painted the walls.  If you ever saw our house in Johnston you will recognize the color scheme.  the boys bedroom was green and blue.  We had purchased a blue couch while in that house to match.  When you buy a blue couch you commit, like there is no turning back, so now the basement is reminding use of our old house. 

My laundry hole, I mean, room is down there and I want it pretty.  the actual space isn't on our list to update anytime soon, but I found fabric to cover the doorway.The problem is I don't sew.

Enter  The Nester.  She has been made famous in blog land for her no sew window treatments.  If she can do it, I can do it. So, with my mother's over the phone instructions I am determined to get two panels made. 

No need to make a pocket for a rod, I'm using clips.  Iron on stitch witchery and I think I'm good to go.  I'll post pictures later this week.  I feel like I'm going on a major adventure.  Hopefully one that didn't just cost me 80$ for nothing.
