So you might remember that we have 4 children and live in a 1200 square foot house.
Needless to say--we live on top of each other.
Two of my boys literally do--live on top of each other...in bunk beds.
Well, my 4 year old--Landon, who lives on the bottom bunk, decided quite a while ago--that he would like some privacy. (I'd like some too--but in 1200 square feet--none of us get much of that!)
But to give him his PRIVACY we got creative with the blankets and gave him a little shelter for his bottom bunk:
This was supposed to be for just a night or two--but we found that the little guy slept a lot better in his little fort. So it became kind of a permanent fixture in his room.
But it was kind of a pain in the butt as the blankets would fall down or get pulled off and we would have to tuck them all back in perfectly for the little man to go to sleep.
I had often thought of sewing something more permanent--but it was always a project low on my list until me and my hubby saw these while shopping at Jysks in Canada:
Fun tab top curtains PERFECT for a little boys room and the PERFECT price of just $9.99 per curtain (regularly priced at $19.99 and not even on sale--I just had a question about them and the guy quoted me the wrong price on them--and so they honored that price at the till--SWEET!!!).
How PERFECT is that? It was CHEAPER than I could buy the fabric and it was already hemmed and had the tabs at the top. All I did was cut the tab, tuck under the raw edge and sew it in place. Add some Velcro and hang them up.
Now it is the PERFECT little place for PRIVACY, for FUN and HOPEFULLY for LOTS OF SLEEPING.
OK--maybe its more for fun than for sleeping.
That in my books is $20 well spent.
