Then, I noticed my nine-year-old Pier One folding screen in the corner. It’s a three-panel screen made of boring, off-white muslin. It would be so refreshing to change that out and a pretty simple project, too!
Seeing as how my sewing machine is still broken (grrr ….), I had to use iron-on seam tape to hem all the edges. Then I sewed the pockets for the rods by hand. I placed cardboard under the panels, so I wouldn’t accidentally sew the panels onto the carpet! The whole project took about five hours and cost me only $5.50!
I’m delighted with the results. The “guest bedroom” in the basement looks so much more inviting!
