Bathroom Window Mistreatment

I'm going to try and make this short and sweet today. I'm busy making Christmas ornaments out of stuff around my house for gifts since we have no money right now... I'll try to get a post up of them soon.

Anyway I've had this fabric in my closet for a year and a half, I would guess. I was keeping it back to reupholster my chairs at some point down the road. There were maybe six yards of fabric, so I decided to cut it in half and do a mistreatment of my bathroom window.

I got some upholstery tacks from Home Depot, 20 for 97 cents (hey, I just realized there's no cent symbol on my keyboard... what is the world coming to when you don't even use the cent symbol anymore!)! Then I folded my fabric up several times. Then I just tacked it up with a few of the tacks! I didn't even need the glue gun, I just sort of tucked the raw edges in and was done!!

Here are the final results:

A little closer view:

Ah, the casualties of war!!!

Hope you enjoyed this post!
