Ruffled Lamp Shade DIY

It’s been pouring here in Fort Worth, Texas. Tropical Storm Bill made it through our area dropping 4″ – 6″ of rain through the DFW metroplex. Rainy days make for the perfect craft days.

My husband and I moved into our home a few years ago. It has taken us forever to furnish and decorate it. Sometimes I am a little intimidated with all there is to do – sometimes me being a “cheap-skate” gets in the way. I can’t help it… if I find out there is a more inexpensive way to do something then I can’t stomach the thought of over-paying. Take my living room for example. We recently got it painted and my lovely husband made me a coffee table. We still have more to do but figured we should start with the curtains before shelves and other knick knacks. Here are before pictures of my living room. {Texas Craft House} DIY Conduit Curtain Rod {Texas Craft House} DIY Conduit Curtain Rod {Texas Craft House} DIY Conduit Curtain Rod Continue reading
