    I've been hearing about how vinyl shower curtains contain the "no-no" PVC as well as other not so nice chemicals. The recommendation is to replace them with cloth shower curtains. My first thought is that cloth is not waterproof. I'm imagining water all over my bathroom floor. What do all...

    It looks like the 70's again in the Lowes add they had thermal foam backed curtains and thermal drapery liners... I have not seen those in years. I am going to the fabric store... maybe I can find yard goods to make my own. Buying the panels might work if I do the same color in more than one...
  5. Question and Answer
    I was thinking most of the ways I reuse vinyl tablecloths are pretty much the same way I could reuse shower curtains. I mean the liners or plastic curtains not the fabric curtains. I'd like to rid myself of the liner and just go with a water resistant fabric curtain. How do you reuse shower...

    I spent 2 days last week making 7 sets of curtains with tiebacks for our motorhome. The fabric is a multicolored stripe that I found in MIL's estate items. It is heavy upholstery/drapery fabric with Scotchguard that I've been holding on to for 10 years, lol. We used to have white miniblinds...

    So, I have been wanting to get blackout curtains for our living room to enhance my movie-watching experience.

    Wasn't really sure where to put this, but since it has to deal with keeping heat bills down I decided to put it here. When looking for inusulated curtains what do you look for? Are they all the same? Looked up insulated curtains and there are a variety of prices to pay for the same size...
  11. For Sale or Trade
    Anyone have any of these that are taking up space in a closet or a garage? Maybe we could work out a deal for them? I found some at hobby Lobby for something like 20 bucks, but i would rather try this way. ;) :grball:

    Our livingroom curtains are horribly old. I even pulled the diningroom curtains down and have none hanging. They were just so fugly.
