I think its smart but my parents dont agree. Well our laundry blinds were bad, so I made my own curtain out of a sheet, measured and cut and sewn around edges to prevent fraying. Tied up above and tied gathered together with a quick release knot with a shoelace. It is about immedicacy and being able to do cleaning in laundry sink without people watching.
Also my parents are angry because I made another creation, a faux blanket cut to shape and tacked onto toilet seat with double sided tape. It is for noise supression when using the toilet. I really did these things and i stand by them. It makes things better, although popular opinion would frown on it.
