My Very First Mistreatment

Here it is - my very first window MIStreatment. I've been oh so impressed with the uber cool window mistreatments that so many have done (especially Nester and so many others) and thought that one day I'd attempt my own.  Well Saturday night at 10:30 PM was my "one day."

Here's what my very lovely before picture (it was 10:30 at night - I'm just impressed I thought to take a before!!)


So with a little help from my "friends" (I love this stuff and I NEVER burn my fingers on it like I do my hot glue gun)..



And VIOLA!  About 90 minutes later, I had this!!
 

I didn't take pictures until today (I was kinda tired by the time I stopped).




No lie - I used a STAPLE GUN to attach them to the wall and I did use the hot glue gun to attach the buttons.  I wanna add more buttons, but those were all I had last night.  And I do want to attach it to a piece of wood and maybe line them, but for now I call them DONE!

I'm linking to the ever wonderful Metamorphosis Monday over at one of my favs Between Naps on the Porch.  And of course the always wonderful Transformation TUESDAY at A Soft Place to Land.  

And of course, I'd be silly not to join the party at The Shabby Chic Cottage and the always fun Transformation Thursday.  And a new one this week - Thrifty Thursday at Tales from Bloggeritaville.

WOOT!! 

Enjoy!!

  3. They look great! I think handmade curtains (even those done staple guns) look so much better than store bought. Well done!

  5. Hmm, was that double sided tape?? Coool--love the teddy too!! I also do things at the wrong hour of tenish! I moved a whole bedroom around from ten to eleven thirty trying to get it right--that lead to a little drawer cleaning as well. So glad my hubby was downstairs and couldn't hear it!!

  6. I get my best ideas during my second wind which means I work early into the next morning many times.

    Love the button and I would add more too!
