So, when it came time to give him a big boy room, the theme was a given...all things basketball. 10 years and four houses later (we've moved a lot), his room still reflects his love for the game. For the window treatments I wanted a topper look, but not just a regular topper. I wanted a topper made from basketball jerseys!
I'll pause here to give you your first "Get to Know Nikki Factoid."
We'll call them Nikki's Knibbles & Bits.
Nikki's Knibbles & Bits #1: I can't sew at all. Not even a little bit.
With that bit of information, now you can understand how my desire for a basketball jersey topper had to be as simple as simple gets. I headed to Ross and lucked up on a heavy duty metal drapery rod, then to my local Conway store where I found a rack full of identical boy's nylon basketball jerseys marked down to $1 each!
Using the arm holes as rod pockets, I simply slid the jerseys on the rod, mounted the rod and voilà!
Six $1 jerseys and a $10 rod later, I had the ultimate b-ball lover's window treatment and one happy little baller!
Score, wouldn't you say?
