I heart glue guns

So, one of my favorite blogs, The Nesting Place, had a "party" for window mistreatments. I'm a lot late to the party, but I made it. My window mistreatment has been done for a couple weeks, I just haven't had time to blog about it. Today, I'm making time.

I've been thinking about curtains and window treatments, not sure what to do, how to do it, how much I'm willing to spend, etc. When I saw the idea for "mistreatments", I knew I'd found the right thing. Boy, have I gotten some ideas, too! The entire downstairs in reds and browns color scheme. In the old house, I had a full bath down with a shower curtain I loved. I hated getting rid of it, but I didn't need it in the new house. So, I dug it out of the garage sale box, ironed it (oh my!), bought some fabulous fringe at Hobby Lobby with my 40% off coupon, and heated up my glue gun. Yep, that's right, no sewing at all (though I do have some skills), all hot glued. Woohoo! I hot glued the fringe on. I hot glued the sides to fit the space of the window (since cutting would require sewing, and I didn't want to do that). The only window it would really fit on was the one over the tub in the master. I think it's perfect, too, for the more contemporary design, that goes with our more contemporary bedding. Ok, so then I stuck it to the wall with upholstery tacks (I drew a line using a level, so I knew just where to put them). I pinned the fold, hot glued it there, pinned another fold, hot glued some more. I hot glued until I was happy with where everything was. I heart my glue gun! I still think it needs something at the top. So, if you have any suggestions, I'll take them. Ok, here it is.

What do ya think?
