    Ikea bug netting curtain

    I have these hanging in my living room. It seems like it would make an economical choice for bug netting. It's light, black, see thru and cheap. Seems durable too. Seems less stiff than bug netting though.

    Hard to tell the fabric from the picture ... if it looks like tulle, it will work great for mosquitoes, but not no see ums....

    Try this out. It worked ok for me. I think I'll try to treat it with some bug treatment to make it full proof.

    I've been looking for that. Thanks for the link!
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Found this on the wally world site - Mainstays Marjorie Window Scarf -- it's sheer polyester and sized at 59x216 ! Chocolate brown color for $14.96. I ordered one and will pick it up when it gets to my store.

    Here's the link at wally world : http://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstays-...colate/5996095

    This is plenty of material when you do this : http://youtu.be/gQRoEpK-7SY

    I'll post pictures when I get it sewn up.
