The Curtains Are Done!

What a fun project! Started at Ace Hardware (who doesn't love a man in a red vest) and ended with curtains that make my room feel like a posh hotel suite. First of all, this was a no-sew project so anyone can do it. All you need is fusible tape and your imagination. See my post back on September 28 for some more background on the project.

And go back even further to see the room I began with. A bedroom lacking in natural light and in desperate need of some warmth. A shoestring budget.

I told Harleigh this evening as I hung the last rod, "I feel all grown up now!" Who knew that curtains could add so much to the room. And I put my heart and soul into these which makes what hangs from the curtain rods so much more than dropcloths.

I'll take more pix during the daylight, but in the meantime, here's where I netted out this evening. Stick a fork in it . . . it's done!

Your curtains look great. Your chair there looks like a cozy and inviting spot to curl up with a good book. Hope you had a great weekend. Jackie

Dawn,

Those curtains turned out really well. I'm not so good at stenciling (hands shake too much) but they just look perfect. Nice job!

I love the color of the paint on your walls! You may have mentioned it elsewhere, but can you list it here too? I'm in the market for a soothing tone for our bedroom walls.
