Curtains & Skirts: Easy Organization with Fabric

Curtains & Skirts: Easy Organization with Fabric

The other night I sewed a skirt for the pedestal sink in my tiny bathroom, and I couldn't be happier with how that yard of fabric conceals the plumbing and adds pattern and storage.

While I wouldn't condone shoving everything into a closet, closing the door, and calling it a day, using fabric is a quick way to conceal a little clutter and just make a visual clean slate. The solution works for any room and also can be a way to add color (Images 1 and 5), create continuity (Images 8 and 9) and delineate spaces (Images 2, 4, 7, and 10).

For smaller projects such as sink skirts, an added bonus is that you can change fabric frequently at a relatively low cost. For about $15 total, Eddie Ross created a tailored skirt with dollar store towels and grosgrain ribbon (Image 3). For instructions on how to make something similar, check out his blog or these directions from Real Simple magazine.
