Tell us about a DIY project you have taken on recently and love.

I recently purchased black and white striped upholstery fabric from IKEA that I'm completely smitten with. They charged $7 a yard, which I felt was a bargain for was I was getting. I originally used some of the fabric for a tea party tablecloth but then went back for more so that I could turn it all it into floor-to-ceiling drapes that make me smile every time I walk in the room. They ended up costing much less than if I purchased preexisting or custom-made drapes. So there you go, a DIY bargain.
