We went to the market to buy some colorful fabric, and with the help of my mother and her sewing machine, made the curtains. It took about half a day of sewing to make 20 curtains (we had 4 nice drawers in place already, and wanted to keep an open shelf for books).
As the Expedit shelves are pretty small, hanging the curtains was very easy. We just used as elastic band that we stringed through the curtains, and pinned it to the Expedit using a staple gun.
