How I Hid My Clutter With Curtains For My Bookcases
It is hard to keep my built in bookcases looking nice, because I have to store all my books there. I can't just style it to look pretty.
So I had an idea to use tension curtain rods and hang fabric to hide all the mess, yet still have everything accessible (piano books for kids, etc).
So I sewed a simple rod pocket, then overlapped the fabric on the ends of the rods.
Doesn't this silver fabric look so much better?!

Here is the middle area. Perhaps I should make a silver cover for my TV so it coordinates better, but I've used a variety of TV covers and enjoy it.
And here is the right side. Have I given you a simple frugal idea for hiding your own clutter? I hope so!
(And.... here is what it looks like at Valentine's day!)
