When we moved we sold all of our bedroom furniture except for our mattress. I was tired of the random pile of blankets we had on our bed and the clunky bedroom furniture.
During our bed makeover, I could not seem to find a bed skirt I liked that was affordable and I didn't want to spend a small fortune just to cover up the few things I have stored under there.
After I discovered that are enormously large window needed three curtain panels instead of just two, I had an idea!
I cut the curtain in half the long way. Then, starting at the head board, I safety pinned it to my box springs.
As I went, I covered the safety pins with a small piece of masking tape so that the pins didn't damage the sheet or the mattress that rested on it.
My bed is a queen size, and my panel ended a little bit after one long side.
I just pinned the grommets around the corner, and started pinning the other half of the curtain panel.
I kept pinning and wrapping the bed skirt around the edge of the bed until I ran out. I didn't make it all the way around, but it didn't matter because part of my bed is really close to a wall. No one will ever know. But, I could have cut up one last panel and continued around and then make a throw pillow from the last half.
Luckily my blanket covers the somewhat awkward corners and no one will ever know that I used a curtain panel as a bed skirt. Except you.
So the next time you are looking for a bed skirt, check in the curtain isle. With a pair of scissors, safety pins, masking tape and about 15 minutes, you might have the perfect bed skirt.
