For Noah’s closet, I decided it would be more convenient to have a curtain in place of the door. Curtains are a great replacement for a door especially to free up space. When your little ones start running around, having one less door is a way to have less smashed fingers! Any curtain can work, we actually used a shower curtain for ours.
Here's what I used:
- shower curtain (from Target)
- small extra piece of fabric
- measuring tape
- sewing machine
Here's what I did:
- I measured the width of Noah’s closet frame. I added a few inches to the width, to make sure that it would bunch up a little all the way across the doorway.
- I cut the curtain.
- After cutting it I measured and cut the small green piece of fabric.
- Next I hemmed the bottom and one side of the small green piece of fabric.
- I sewed the curtain and the green piece together and then hemmed cut edge.
- Lastly, I hung Noah’s curtain with a shower rod and rings.
The curtain really added a pop of color to the nursery. It also freed up the space the door would have taken up, now there is more room for Noah's library and toys. I love the way the curtain ties in with the nursery's colors (And the adorable pillows I made. See below.). And I'm sure Noah will soon appreciate how many more toys and books we can put in his room!
Adding a color block to the bottom of this curtain was a quick and simple sewing project. You can make it the length and style you choose. This project was simple but made a big difference in nursery (tour it here). If you try this, we would love to see how your's turns out or even different ways you interpreted it.
