I can cry if I want to!

I have never been the sentimental type. I was always throwing or giving things away. I never cried at sad or girlie movies. I was a rock! Then I got pregnant and boy did my life change...haha.....I cried over someone giving me snowman cookies and suddenly I couldn't bare the thought of giving anything of my lil man's away! I wanted to keep everything he ever touched! I know that I can't do that so I have been trying to figure out some ways that I could repurpose some of the things I just couldn't let go of yet!

We just recently moved into a new house and I needed a curtain for my lil guys room. So I dug his crib skirt out of a box and decided to use it somehow to make a curtain. I bought a solid Navy curtain from the store and thought I could use the skirt to spice it up a bit! Here is what I did:

Step One: Cut the skirt along the top seam. It just makes it easier to work with. ( don't judge the wrinkledness of the skirt lol)

Step two: I attached the piece of the skirt right on top of the curtain. That leaves you with a very ugly seam!
Step Three: I covered my ugly seam with some burlap ribbon ( which by the way is my new favorite) I used hot glue to attach this.

Step Four: Hung it up!
I Love the way it turned out! my lil guy loves the way it turned out! He is very proud of his new curtain! I have come up with some more way to use his baby bedding on through his boy hood but since we are still in the crib I can't show you those yet! Stay tuned! I hope this inspires you to repurpose :)

live fabulously,
