Liven up the windows in your Waterloo apartment by accenting them with homemade curtains. Window treatments are an excellent option that will help residents achieve privacy and additional decor in their rental space. To inspire residents of the Pinegrove Apartments to create their own curtains, our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has put together a few creative DIY ideas to test out.
Shanty 2 Chic’s No-Sew Curtains tutorial proves that you don’t need to know how to sew to create DIY window treatments. Simply bond the fabrics together using specialty tape and make them whatever length and style. These curtains can easily be modified and changed up to fit your updated look, making them perfect for rental apartments.
Once you’ve mastered sewing, why not try your hand at Hey Let’s Make Stuff’s Easy-Sew Ikea Curtains. This DIY is an ideal beginner project as each curtain only requires five straight lines of sewing. You don’t have to worry about making them perfectly straight and they will last longer than curtains secured by tape. Pick up your fabrics and additional supplies at Creative Sisters Quilt Studio located at 321 Lancaster Street West. The studio is a six-minute drive and 34-minute walk from the apartments.
