Puttin' some clothes on... {on my windows that is}

We've lived in our lovely home for three and a half years now... and my poor windows are still naked. I mean, they have blinds on them, but they are

crying...
screaming...
begging...


for some fabric. Ok, it is ME who has done the crying, begging (not so much screaming, I hope)... and then I discovered this blog and saw this post. So, off I went to JoAnn's where I bought $10.17 of fabric and got busy. I started with my master bathroom because I figured if I completely messed it up, hardly anyone would see. But I actually like it! So, I'm showing you... all 5 of my readers :)

Before: Excuse the horrible lighting (and camera). Just to keep it real, I didn't even bother moving the towel, plastic tub, and tool box. {What? You don't all have a toolbox next to your bathtub?!}

After: That took about 4 minutes! (And I cleaned... or rather, cleared the stuff for the picture).

Plus I had enough fabric left to make a mistreatment for one of the windows in our bedroom...

AND a little more extra so I covered a pillow that was in the garage sale pile for our bed. Thank you Nester... I am loving the inspiration and being able to decorate on a budget! Not sure I'm loving the fabric, but for 10 bucks and about 20 minutes total time, it's a great start if I do say so myself.

How did you make these? What is the website? They look really nice. Our windows need something too.
I've seen on trading spaces where they take plywood and batting and put the fabric over it, but we can't figure out how to get it on the wall-and well I'm not that motivated.

That looks great, and I love the fabric choice! You'll have to show me how to do that - our living room and kitchen windows sure could use the help! Can't wait to see what you do with the rest of the windows!

So i guess you don't need my sewing machine after all! They look good!

Those look really good. I need blinds before I can do some treatments though. :)
