some (general) tips to buy curtains

dear diary,

yesterday, mother and i went to Nagoya Textiles (mother all time fav) to buy curtain materials. the best thing about shopping with mother is she has the power of great bargainer! haha!!

since mother will going to do the diy project, i let her choose the design and colors. excuse me, this time it is out of my theme cause it is referring to mother fav colors. nice! as long as she is happy, i am happy too.

before i go further, i would like to share some (general) tips to buy curtains:

1. measure the high and length of your window.
2. add some inches on each high and length as for finishing part of curtains/ ask SA/ tailor/ measure your existing curtains esp at the top and bottom (back side).
3. choose the design of curtains.
4. add some inches depends on the design (opt).
5. choose colors combination and study with the design either it is suitable or not (important!).
6. allocate the budget.
7. survey and/ or buy the materials according to the budget

in my case, mother has stick with her fav colors and budget, RM4-5/m only. after 1,2,3,4,5 rounds finally..

i confused, which design is the best.

what you say?

i like this accessories.

how does it looks alike. wait until 11.06.11. wink.

last but not least, this are what we spend last weekend:

maroon color curtain - Rm 3.80 x 3m = Rm 11.40
off white color curtain - Rm 4.80 x 3m = Rm 14.40
tailor fees (mother) - hugs and kisses only. hihi.
total damage are Rm 25.80

p/s: i am not buying that accessories yet cause i am looking for various shape in Semua House (if any).

yours truly,

assalamualaikum syima,

phew. sounds expensive! just imagine, we have 3 panels x 4windows + sliding doors, 2 arches and 2 doors at living room >_<"

my mother send to tailor just for upper part such as scallop and etc. the rest, she did it herself.

next year, insya Allah before my wedding she suggested to buy new curtains. lot of $$ to spend. huhu
