    Basically, I have ugly curtains in my halls. I have decorated my room fully, so all of it looks really pretty and the ugly blue walls are pretty much covered up.

    But the curtains are still just there and they're not nice. I was wondering if anyone knows of any way I can make them nicer. New curtains, adding things onto the curtains, altering them, hanging things by them?

    I tried to research online but I cant seem to find much. I know there must be other people out there who care this much about their room feeling homely, so please help me out!

    Any photos of what you've done would also be pretty great.

    (Bear in mind the curtains need to be able to be returned to their current state in order to get my deposit back at the end of the year. )


    If the curtains need to be returned in their current state, then I suggest that you buy new curtains and change them instead of making modifications to the original curtains. That way, you can keep the curtains safe and replace them in their original state when it's time to get your deposit back. I hope this helps!

    Don't worry too much about getting your deposit back after modifications, from every instance I've seen as long as there's some version of the item in the room they won't take issue with it.
Are you going to a festival?
