Delighted to Be DIY: Shower Curtain to Window Curtain

When we were first married I went through some serious decorating problems. But then again, who does not ? You are caught in limbo, trying to weld her style and his style together, combined with your mama's style, because that's what you grew up with. Throw in a bunch of hand-me-down furniture and it's a disaster.

Problem A: I wanted everything black (furniture, bedspread...), and did not think black and brown coordinated at all. Though not possible at the time, I wanted all of our furniture to match. And when it did not , I just painted it black.

Luckily I now see the error of my ways. I am not a fantastic decorator, but I do try to reflect our family's personality throughout our house. Now I've realized mixing and matching furniture is fine. We've got pieces from Target, Ikea, furniture warehouses, and a few vintage ones thrown in there as well. And somehow it just works.

Enter Problem B: I went through a red phase, where everything was red, black, and white (just like our wedding colors were). Then I quickly got sick of red and turned to my "go-to" color, lime. Guys, I had a lime green bedroom door in middle school. This is MY color.

But consequently, everything (and I mean everything - pillows, blankets, lampshades, artwork, curtains) was the same shade of lime. Black and lime. Then when we got brown leather couches, it turned to black, brown and lime.

A year ago I finally tried to salvage the problem by adding royal blue, along with and pops of mustard yellow. It really did not look so bad at all. But in this house, with everything going on, I knew we needed color to liven things up. It works so well, and makes me smile. (When we get our orange and white chevron rug shipped soon, I will take you on a house tour.)

But alas, the point is that I tend to gravitate towards lime green. (Remember our dining chairs? The rocking chair I reupholstered? Our couch pillows? It's a problem.) So for three and a half years, we've had these not-quite-limey-lime green curtains gracing our living room. They are hideous and I can not stand to look at the color anymore. I thought about dyeing them for a while, but I can not since they are 100% polyester. Right now they've found their home in Jack's room, where they fit in perfectly.

So that left our bedroom curtains being hung in the living room. I love the way they look (they are a sheer white, with hand-drawn, geometric diamonds on them ), but now our bedroom did not have curtains and was feeling stark. Enter Target. After disappointingly browsing the curtain isle for a good ten or fifteen minutes, I met up with Tyler in the bath isle. They have a much larger selection of patterns in their shower curtains, so the thought came to me: I can just turn a shower curtain into a window curtain by cutting it in half! We already have blinds, so the curtains will just be for framing the window anyway. Genius idea, right? (And much cheaper than curtain panels, by the way, and really really easy.)

Step one: Lay out your shower curtain. (If you are my mom, you would have washed and ironed it, but if you are like me you are too lazy to do so.)

Step two: Cut it in half. This was really easy and did not even require folding because the wrinkle lines were still there from being packaged. One point for the above mentioned laziness!

Step three: Hem the raw edge. If you are my mom, you will probably iron the edge over and pin it. If you are like me, just eyeball it.

Step four: Do not forget to back stitch at the beginning and when you get to the end.

Step five: Hang them up and you are done! I just threaded mine through the loops at the top (had to cut them a teeny bit wider) but you could also use rings to hang them. We love the pattern and warmth it adds to the room for a lot less than buying individual panels.

Multi Channel Laser Anti-theft Alarm Circuit
The figure shows the circuit of multi-channel laser anti-theft alarm. VT1, vt2, RL1, RP1, R1, K and vd6 constitute an optical control switch. During the day, the photoresistor RL1 is in a low resistance state under light, VT1 is saturated on, vt2 is off, relay K is not energized, normally open contact J is off, and the alarm circuit does not work; At night, RL1 changes to high resistance state, VT1 is cut off, vt2 is saturated and turned on, K is powered on to make j pull in, the circuit supplies power to the whole machine, the red LED is on, the regulated voltage is 6V, and supplies power to the subsequent circuit after voltage reduction by vd7, vd8 and vd9. Laser rods JB1, RL2, VT3, RP2, R3 and R4 form a laser transmitting and receiving network. When the alarm is in the waiting state, the laser rod emits red laser and irradiates it on the photoresist RL2. RL2 is in a low resistance state, and the base potential of VT3 is very low, which provides trigger current for thyristor vs, vs is turned on, IC2 is powered on, and the horn gives an alarm sound. The alarm can be equipped with up to 10 laser transmitting and receiving networks at the same time. The circuit structure is exactly the same, and C3 is an anti-interference capacitor. An is a reset switch. When the power grid is cut off or the gangster cuts off the power supply, the battery immediately supplies power to the whole machine, ensuring the reliability of the alarm device.Component selection: IC1 is voltage stabilizing integrated circuit 7806, and aluminum heat sink shall be added during use. IC2 is KD-9561 four sound chip, and the circuit is connected to the second sound selection terminal sel2 (fire truck alarm sound). The laser source is a red laser rod with voltage of 4.5V and power
