Outdoor Drapes...Bargain Prices...Surprising Sources!

Dirt Du Jour

Our friend, Cindy McNatt, over at the lovely and useful blog Dirt Du Jour has a fantastic idea and source for garnering affordable curtain fabric...hospital sheets! At $79.00 for one dozen, fully hemmed, 60" x 104" sheets, she was able to create an entire wall of outdoor drapes.

While Cindy's post advocates these panels for outdoor use, they have me conjuring images of simple, crisp white curtains to use on our over-sized glass doors and several, currently unadorned, windows throughout our house!

And...perhaps...matching (washable) slip covers for the dining room chairs...and sofa!!!

My mind is reeling with the possibilities.

Thanks so much, Cindy, for the great idea and Inspiration!

Warmly,
Tracey

"FRUGAL LUXURIES: Simple Pleasures to Enhance Your Life and Comfort Your Soul" was written by Tracey McBride and published by Bantam Books, NY, in 1997. It was the first of its genre to synergize the elements of simplicity, frugality and gracious living.

After more than a decade, FRUGAL LUXURIES has never been out of print and is now more relevant than ever.

"It's our hope that a new generation, faced with a teetering economy, will also find this information helpful and enlightening."
