Night at the Improv – A Curtain Call

Most of my “wild hairs” come late at night.
I’m my most productive self in the 
middle of the night when
“not a creature is stirring”.
Last night was no exception.

I decided to do a little more
work on some of the unfinished walls in my 
Dictionary Entryway.
I added more pages, hung the light switch cover,
and did a little cleaning, since we’ll have
company for Thanksgiving.

I wanted to hang a curtain valance,
but forgot to buy brackets for the rods.

Being the not-patient person
that I am, I decided to search
my junk stash to see if I could do a little “improv”.

Here’s what I came up with.

These vintage coat hooks worked great for brackets
and are very in-character {pun intended}
for the vintage/industrial look this room has.
I didn’t break a leg when I
hung them up, but I like them!
{I’ll like them more once I remove the excess Gorilla Glue that squished through}

These are the only store-bought curtains I own
{actually, I have 2 sets of them}.
My mom makes all my curtains,
but I loved the delicate look these have
so she modified them to fit some windows in my old house.
Fortunately, they’ll also work in our new house,
so they are making a curtain call.
Bravo!  Encore!

Won’t you join me in giving them
a standing ovation?

Okay, that’s enough of the dumb
live performance puns.
I get a little comedic when
it’s going on 3 in the morning.
