But need 90x90 which are always the most expensive and need a set for both ends of the room. HELP. Where can I get them at a reasonable price. (Not £90 per pair). Thanks

Can you make your own?

singyswife · 04/05/2008 19:30

I cannot sew to save myself, have trouble sewing on a button. I suppose I COULD beg my mum to make them for me. Have seen the ones I want but they are £90 a pair. How I wish money was no object.

Do you have a dunelim mill (sp) near you I got some lovely turquoise blue/green for the playroom in that size for £25.

Alternatively TJ Hughes and Rosebys's normally good prices and a bit of choice.

What colours are you thinking off?

Have just had my livingroom done over the weekend in autumn red and toffee. Is very nice but had really cream curtains up before and rat has chewed them to bits and the cream wont go. Will check Rosebys in the week hopefully will manage to get something in there.

not sure of prices but we were in B and Q last night and they had some lovely curtains.

Hvae you checked ebay, I bought some curtains for dd room for a big bay window and they were thirty pounds for 2 sets of brand new curtains.

do you really mean the rat has chewed them to bits?

singyswife · 04/05/2008 20:11

Yes I really mean the Rat has chewed them to pieces. Have looked on ebay but will look again.

singyswife · 04/05/2008 20:15
