If ever there was a time to deploy a "voila" -- this is it! (In a random bit of word association, it just occurred to me that the French for 'unveil' is "deVOILer" . . . )
6 euros' worth of Ikea fabric
8 euros' worth of drapery tape (is that the correct term?)
45 minutes' worth of Mom's sewing time cutting and making the panel
2 hours' worth of Kim's (by hand) sewing time sewing the tape onto the panel
One groovy curtain!!!
And the banishment of the dark blue plaid forever.
Look, we even replaced the curtain under the sink . . .
I'm so happy!
