I was shopping at my favorite store, a local thrift shop called H2O, and as usual I was determined to find a treasure. This place has lots of junk at really cheap prices. What's not to love?
I was almost done combing through the bargain basement when I saw a smooth and elegant piece of fabric shoved in the piles of yucky 1980's pilled sheet sets. I pulled out the fabric to investigate and found what appeared to be a curtain panel, about 40" by 108." The tag said "West Elm," so you know I bought it even though it was pricy at one whole dollar.
It appears to be brand new with packing creases still intact. I looked on West Elm's website, but this particular curtain is no long available. Their similar panels are $60 and up for one.
The fabric is a smooth, sheer burlap and the edges are bound in satin. Really a dramatic and lovely piece.
I'm a fan of West Elm for their sophisticated, modern country decor. Rustic finishes made chic with polished accessories. But wow, is their stuff expensive!
But now my question is.... what do I do with my amazing curtain panel?
My earlier shirt-turned-pillow inspiration tapped out my genius. I'm at a loss.
I don't have any single windows in the house where this panel could go, so it needs to be re-purposed. Please, please leave a comment with your ideas.
If I use your suggestion, I'll send you a Starbuck's gift card.
Thanks in advance for your help!
