I have finished all the window treatments for which I have been collecting material. At this point I must interject a special credit to Mom whose sewing ideas and expertise were crucial to this endeavor. Though I look with pride on the living room drapes that we designed ourselves, I also feel a sense of awe that she was willing to review that plan with me so many times in the course of the 6 months that I was executing it. She also helped me implement the other two designs which we originally found in a book and subsequently customized. I don’t know how many hours these curtains have consumed (There were at least 3 hours of seam-ripping involved) but I feel a great sense of satisfaction at all that I have learned through the course of this long project.
These are my favorites because I had such a fun time choosing the complementary fabrics. I still have a few more pieces for accents and a chair cover. (Thank you Allison for helping me find the tassels…a real bargain)
As a side note: I’ve been trying to get good pictures of the kitchen window treatments for about a month now. I have determined that there is not a single time of day when my kitchen pictures turn out so you’ll have to see them in person in order to truly appreciate them.
This room will eventually be decorated in black and white. The curtains are just a start. (By the way-does anyone have any ideas on painting a room black, white and cream?? I’ve thought about chair rail or faux or just doing one accent wall…I don’t want it to be a cave but I haven’t hit on the perfect idea. Liz-any suggestions?)
