::DIY window dressing::

Thursday 1 September 2011

Last week on a thrifting outing with friends, we ventured into a military surplus store. I was intrigued by all the old ammunition boxes in the front entryway and knew this was going to one of those dig-for-the-gold sort of shops. This is the same store I found my fan propeller magnet board under a table in a dirty cardboard box. 

I was drawn to these burlap sacks for the texture + typography. Google Translate tells me it reads, "the care service." Understandable, given the flanking cross symbols. It came complete with canvas ties on top and the size was perfect for the long window in my bedroom. All I had to do was hang up a curtain rod, tie a few knot + BAM...a window unique treatment.
