Starting from Scratch or Semi-Homemade, DIY Curtain Projects You Can Totally Pull Off

(Image credit: Amy Bartlam for Homepolish )

Some people might consider curtains a luxury, others a necessity. If you think about the many benefits that curtains provide, I’d err on the side of necessity. Sure they make a great design statement in a room, but they also can give the illusion of larger windows, create privacy, block out hot summer sun, add a layer between cold winter drafts, and get a nursery ready for nap time. But not all styles, windows, and budgets are alike, so when it comes to curtains, don’t shy away from making them yourself, either completely from scratch or with the help of existing materials. Here’s a roundup of project ideas to get you started…

One of the greatest intersections of design happens when function and taste meet. Even more so is finding the sweet spot between functional kid-friendly toys and tasteful decor. In an age full of plastic, heavily-branded games, and now fidget spinners and glitter slime, it’s hard to imagine a world where toys and games can double as home decor. Unless, that is, you purchase an expensive artisanal alternative, or make your own. So in an effort to balance function and taste, as well as artisanal and affordable, I give you this DIY balancing block game.

Sliding Barn Doors Aren’t Just for Fans of HGTV’s Fixer Upper

Like shiplap and farmhouse sinks, sliding barn doors are one of those trends that seem to have gained in popularity thanks to HGTV’s Fixer Upper. However, I think that the appeal of this sliding door isn’t just about achieving that particular rustic style. Instead, it’s a smart solution for odd-sized pass-throughs, since you can easily trim the door to the size you need. Sliding barn doors are also a handy space-saving alternative to French doors, since you don’t have to worry about losing square footage to accommodate door clearance. They’re also relatively easy to install compared to other options (like pocket doors), since a key component to the look is the exposed sliding track.
