I’ve seen repurposed sweater pillows, sweater pumpkins, sweater lamp shades. a sweater cat bed, but I had yet to spy a repurposed sweater curtain until I went to the home inspection for the house that we are buying.
It was located in the hobby shed, and although I’m almost sure it was hung for utilitarian purposes only, there’s always a chance that someone was thinking outside the box on this one.
On the outside the hobby shed looks like a little cottage, right?
That’s my realtor/ gorgeous sister in law in case you were wondering.
But once you open the door, hello, it’s more like a teenage graffiti den. LOL. The mural on the wall is very well done, but it wasn’t what I would have expected to find inside this quaint looking building.
The hobby shed is suited with about 10 individual outlets running along the wall about every 2-3 ft, which leads me to believe that the previous owner may have taught art or craft lessons.
In which case, someone was either being really creative or really conventional when they decided to hang this sweater as a window covering.
As primitive as this sweater curtain was hanging quasi-cafe style in the hobby shed, it did get my mind to thinking.
Hmmm, clothing as window treatments???
To launder first goes without saying, but with the option to cut the clothing, re-pattern it and sew it back together
Tutus in a little girls room?
Sports jerseys in a boys room or game room?
Petticoats in a country cottage?
Blue jeans in a potting shed?
Blue jeans in a teen’s room?
Last year’s Abercrombie in a teen’s room?
Camoflauge in a fisherman’s cabin?
Just for fun, here’s a peek of our new place. Kind of a blank slate, huh?
Here’s the fire pit, that we hope to be enjoying once the weather cools.
How about you? Would you ever repurpose old clothing into window coverings?
What would you use and where?
