Post subject: Nursery curtains
I am in the process of decorating my nursery but really battling to find curtains. I have two little windows - odd size and so really need to have custom made/altered curtains. Any advice? Also would like some other things for the room in similar fabric/pattern.

hi beansmum, over here in NZ we have a website called Trade Me were everyone sells unwanted items at cheap prices, you can get anything from shoes to houses!! Check with your friends what your buy/sell site is if there is one, there will be cheap curtains that you may still have to alter but at least you not paying the price for brand new curtains. My friend decorated her whole babies room including cot from buying 2nd hand off Trade Me. Good luck with your newest edition!!

Hi Beansmum, Have you got a relative who can make curtains etc? I have old aunties who love doing that sort of thing!!! Otherwise what about getting some curtains made at a seamstress with and then you could make your own cushion covers (dead easy and very quick) with the same fabric to match and if you get a staple gun and a couple of squares of mdf from B&Q you could staple the same fabric on to make some wall plaques? xxx
I'm not on here all the time so if you need anything PM me Arch x
