In the dining room, the large window gets redressed. The window is so long, two wooden boards need to be attached lengthwise to create the valance (not shown). A long-enough curtain rod could not be found, so electrical conduit pipe is pieced together with wooden dowels. Matching slipcovers, known as shrugs are made for the dining chairs. A secondhand tablecloth was then dyed to match the drapes and shrugs.

Drapes and valance $65, tablecloth $5, vase $10 and chair shrugs $12
