OK, it’s not terrible. I’m not going to call it a complete failure. It’s just not right. It’s not what I had imagined in my head. Plus, I think for about the same price (and a lot less effort). I could have gotten a very similar product already made.
On sale from Pottery Barn for $33 (off of $70).
Am I going to go out and buy the Pottery Barn curtain? Yep.
I’ve come to realize that there are times that projects just don’t come together the way you imagined it would. But that’s ok. That’s kind of the risk you take with DIY. It’s doesn’t always turn out right.
So in the end, I’m not saving any money on this particular project. If I had just bought the Pottery Barn curtain in the first place, I would have. And that is when it’s better to DIY than to BUY.
