A "sheer" delight

Today's tip: Use what you have.

My little family recently relocated and I am in the full throws of decorating a new home. (Or in my case trying to find all of my stuff.)

Our new house was built in the 1960's and is very cute, but has so many windows. I could invest in fancy curtains for each room of the house, but I am sure my husband wouldn't want me to drive us in to bankruptcy to cover the 20 or so windows.

So I must wake up creativity, who has been slumbering away since the birth of my son.

Repurposing is a word that is being used a lot. I love the idea because I think we, and by we I mean I, can be a little wasteful. Not everything is, or should be, disposable.

This is our old shower curtain. It was given to us as a wedding gift. It does not fit with the motif of the bathroom (more on that later). So a new shower curtain was pruchased dirt cheap at the local Dollar General. (Ah, DG, how I love thee.)

So, in about 45 seconds this shower curtain became a cute window sheer for my office.

What is the most creative thing you have repurposed?
