I have a couple of rooms in my house that have awkwardly-placed closets. In both rooms, opening the closet doors was tricky, causing us to bang into furniture or other doors. So I took down the doors and made curtains for those closet openings–problem solved! And it actually looks pretty cute. Here are the examples:
In my daughter’s bedroom (behind the curtain there is a gate up to keep her from destroying her closet!):
And in the kids’ bathroom (the room was so small I couldn’t even get a full-length shot of the curtain, but you get the idea):
Really, you don’t have to be able to sew to do this–you could even do it by hand if you don’t have a machine. It’s just a giant rectangle with a foldover at the top to slip in a spring-loaded cafe curtain rod. Just make the width of it roughly 75% wider than the width of the doorway, and you’re in business.
Do you have an idea that works for you? Let me know if you post one, and I’ll link to you below. Those of you without blogs are welcome to leave your own idea in my comment section!
