Dining Room on Minimal Moolah - Part 1

Part 1 - Covering the Cracks and Softening the Look

Cracks are supposed to be covered. Especially certain bodily cracks. Please keep them covered. Please.  Nobody needs to see that.

Do you want to see wall cracks? Cause I’ve got them.

Join me as I soften my dining room’s look and hide those hideous wall cracks with drapes on minimal moolah (money, that is).

Um, sure. I’m not that frilly of a girl, so I’m still getting use to the softening look of the IKEA Vivan drapes. Hmmm. I’m pretty sure Biker Boy is undecided too. He’s not much a drape guy.

Let’s take a look at the “before” drapes:

And “after” drapes:

On the plus side, they cover the cracks! (See this post about the cracks.)

I got the idea from Young House Love’s sun porch drapes. Their drapes look gorgeous. Mine are just there and growing on me, I think. Maybe I’m just not use to them yet. They do cover the cracks.

I used some string and nails to hang them where they border the cracks and the windows.

Cheap. $14.99 for 2 panels. I got them for a gift. THANK YOU! I do love that they cover the cracks without having to fix them at this moment.  It's always a work in progress.

You’d never know there were huge Grand Canyon sized cracks running down the edges of my wall. In 3 places! Three of the drapes cover cracks. Can you tell? Three places!

Do you use drapes to hide anything? Do you like drapes or that open and minimal look? Do you think my drapes are an improvement?  Or just a good way to hide wall cracks? Enjoy!
