      Are you good at sewing? I don't want anything fancy.. My biggest concern with making my own is the hook part of the curtains. Right now I have vertical blinds, we put them up as a temporary solution when we moved in and now just the site of them makes me sick. lol..

        i made mine too - just simple hanging curtains. i bought a sewing machine and everything to make them! lol - and it was still cheaper. i knew i wanted silk drapes, and they were huge windows/doors - so it was going to be spendy.

        tammy, i just sewed the panels, and then used the clip on hooks that hung from the rod (and clipped on the drapes) - super easy.

          When I first saw the title of the thread I thought it was something to treat your windows to prevent them from rusting or cracking or something like that. Then when you all started giving input I realized what you meant.

          LOL. Goodness gracious I am so sheltered sometimes. Being an apartment city girl you don't do much decorating or home improvement activities. Sorry I'm no help. We don't do curtain we just get blinds at like Home Depot or something. (Actually when you move into an apartment the last person who rented it usually leave them there) But if you need advice on cockroach spray I'm the person to call. Eeew. LOL.

            I may have to try it. Plus I kind of already know the look I want and it should be somewhat easy to make. I have a nice sewing machine that Cain got me last year ( I made all new pillows for our sofa (about 7 of them)) Hmm, maybe I'll swing by the fabric store this week and see if I can find some fabric that I like..

            Ah ha! You see my friend, there is not one single rod in my house. We did valances over the curtains. And to get the look that I wanted we simply mounted the valances and the curtains onto a 2x4 piece of wood. it worked great and I get compliments ALL the time. And nope, not a good sewer... just REALLY easy.
