I have mentioned Lindsay's blog before. Recently she did a post on these window treatments. I'm a sucker for fabric and window coverings, so I thought I would give it a try in J.D's room. Her room is painted a light mint green. I joking used to call it "mental institution green", but I think that hurt her feelings, so I stopped. Seriously though, it's that light, light green that is scientifically proven to be the most soothing on the eye. Architect's drafting boards are usually topped with this color because of it's soothing properties.
Okay, on with the story. We bought boring white tab-top curtains for her room. I like curtains to puddle at the bottom and in order for the curtains to puddle, they had to be hung lower. Well, when they were hung lower you could see the top of the window frame. Every time I passed her bedroom, those window frames made me crazy! (I am totally obsessive... if you didn't know that already) Something had to be done. This is where Lindsay's curtain making abilities come in.
That's the view of our front yard. We have a huge front yard. In the window on the left where it looks like the grass is two different lengths; that's where the pasture starts. Usually you can see a horsey out this window. Not today.
TA DA! Lindsay gave great directions. I definitely love these windows now and they don't make me as crazy when I look in J.D's room. (I still have a few adjustments to make) They honestly took longer to hang than they did to make. Well, maybe about the same amount of time. My aunt came and looked at them last night and she couldn't tell that they were made with a hot glue gun and not sewn! Until I told her of course.
Have a great week!
