We are excited to start our 2nd annual 31 Days Challenge with The Nester! Last year we wrote about Capturing the Spark in Marriage during the month of October and this year we're going to be sharing tips and tricks for decorating, marriage, and life! Like we said last week, life is a little crazier for both of us this year, so if we don't post every single day, we hope you'll give us a little grace!
If you're joining us for the first time, welcome! Leave a comment and if you're part of the 31 Day Challenge include a link to your blog. We'd love to meet you!
And now for our first trick!
Does anyone else think hanging curtain rods (or really anything for that matter) is hard? When Adam and I hung the curtains in the living room last fall it seemed like that was more stressful than picking out the fabric and sewing the curtains combined! All that measuring and making sure they were level was a lot of work!
So when I saw this tip for hanging curtains from Miss Mustard Seed on Pinterest, I knew I had to give it a try when we hung the curtains in the baby room (and yes, SOON you will get to see the whole room, we're still putting the finishing touches on it!)
Then you just drill through the cardboard! Once you have the template all you have to do is flip it over for the other side of the window and repeat on the other windows. No measuring required! Adam said it was tons easier than measuring each window (he's in charge of all projects requiring a ladder these days).
