Another concern has been this shuttered door off of the front hall. Obviously, the homeowners felt that there was a draft problem, so this was installed. Not quite what I would have picked.
Here's the view from the living room, looking into the front hall. Note the curtain rod and clip rings now installed above this door. I fashioned a simple curtain out of the bottom sheet to a flannel Queen sized set that I have already been using the top sheet from as a door curtain on the other side of the living room.
I ended up cutting down an old fleece jacket that is too big and has a broken zipper. Stuffing it? I used saved bits of fabric from recent sewing, cut off collars, cuffs from fabric that I plan to upcycle into quilts and table runners, worn out socks and underwear of all things! Total discards being called into action rather than being tossed.
Here is my latest draft dodger. Thoughts on how to keep it in place? Obviously when we are home, we can install it. My concern is for when we leave. I am thinking more push pins, hammering them thru the fabric, into the wooden door. Other suggestions?
