Last weekend I bought a sewing machine.
I also picked up a couple canvas drop cloths and other necessities for a project I’ve had in mind for quite some time.
The drop cloth idea came from the Nate Berkus Show. Truth.
After lots of cutting, pinning, and stitching over the course of the last two weekends, today I finished my new bedroom curtains.
Here is what we had before:
Just some standard thing from Target, one panel per window. I had to pin them up at the bottom because they were way too long.
Here is what we have now:
A couple o’ ribbon stripes, some buttoned tie-backs, and two panels per window like adults. I love them. Our bedroom is really starting to take on the earthy/natural/slightly rugged look I’ve been working toward.
Drapes for the living room are in the works. All I have to do is add the ribbon stripes (three per panel), so that won’t take long. I’ll probably finish those tonight.
