Charming Blackout Curtain Makeover

As someone who needs my room to be PITCH BLACK when I sleep I've always used blackout or room darkening curtains. They are fairly inexpensive but PLAIN. This post shows how I easily added a little felt to make them match my bedding. Simple and inexpensive! This can be done on any heavier plain fabric curtains.

Because I wanted to make my curtains match my bedspread I drew some of the simple flower patterns on my bedding to use as a template. You can use any pattern or grab the one's I used on my site link provided in this post.
