Turning Curtains into Pillows

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I got these fantastic curtains that look like book shelves on H&M’s website from the Home section. The only problem with them was that they were a little too long for the curtain rod that was already hanging. (I know first world problems.) Luckily I come from a family of brilliant people and it was a snap for my mom to hem them to the right length! The best part is that the extra fabric didn’t go to waste. Instead of tossing it out, I now have a long pillow that matches my curtains. (Side note H&M also sells smaller pillow cases that match which I bought for my chair.) I thought that you could take inspiration from my family if you ever end up with extra long curtains and make yourself a matching pillow. If you’re not really looking to spend any extra money on pillow stuffing consider instead saving the lint from your drier. It’s likely just as clean since you washed the clothes before putting them in the drier. And there you have it BTs, a matching pillow or maybe even two at no extra cost.


I know the lighting sucks but just pretend I was doing something artsy there.


That pillow is looking pretty awesome there, isn’t it? Rhetorical! Of course it is.


The smaller pillows from H&M 🙂


My cat being adorable. Nothing to do with the curtains but they happen to be in the shot too.

  1. Coolest curtains ever. Now just need to print out a few fake PhD diplomas for the wall and everyone will be drop jawed impressed.
