Finishing Some DIY Curtains

It's Friday, everyone!
Woohoo! The weeks are just flying by, aren't they?

Well, I have been a little busy taking care of my little girls. It is such a blessing watching them grow and being able to stay at home with them....I every minute of it!! Our youngest is already 5 weeks old and I seriously can't believe it. Our oldest is moving to a bigger bed now and she is doing great taking naps and sleeping in her new bed at night! My husband and I were talking about how bittersweet that is that she is growing up so fast and is so independent, but we are happy with her development and hope she doesn't grow up too know? Pretty soon we will be dropping her off at kindergarten...well not for another 2 1/2 years so I still have some time with her at home, right?
So crazy how quick things change and happen but I realize each and every day that it is all a blessing from the Lord and I am so thankful for that.

And just when you thought my post was about my children, I have more to share...hehe.

I wanted to also post about finishing up some curtains I hung a while back. They are the chevron ones I blogged about here. The ends weren't finished so I had to get a little creative.

When my mom was visiting a few weeks ago, she noticed that the ends of the curtains were choppy (of course) and suggested I use some ribbon I had to attach to the ends! Brilliant! So that is just what I did and I have pictures of the one I completed...but still need to finish the other one.

So this is what the curtains looked like before adding the red ribbon...oh yeah, I decided to add red ribbon to the ends because it was what I had on hand.
Gotta love using what you already own!

Here is the red ribbon attached with some glue.

The right curtain still needs to be finished but I wanted to post these just so you could see the process.

I wasn't sure about the red ribbon at first and was thinking of buying a more neutral colored ribbon, but once I attached the red ribbon and hung up the curtain, I kinda liked the look.
Plus, it can always be changed in the future...and you know how I am about that! If I don't like something, I change it up! :)

Have you ever attached ribbon to curtains to add a little color?

Thanks for stopping by!
