Living Room Makeover (Again…)
Before pics of LR – Please excuse the mess – it’s always like this. HA!
Seriously – BIG difference! Yes, I need some new pillows and matching knick knacks – but the curtains themselves made a huge difference in the room. I’m so happy with them!
The curtain rods are from Lowes (Allen Roth – Walnut Stain) and the fabric for the curtains is Wildwood Jubilee by Richloom. I ordered mine from Maryjos.com. She had the cheapest price I could find anywhere!
This picture is a good representation of the actual color of the fabric!
Love the fabric!
These curtains definitely have a lot of mistakes and I can’t sew a straight stitch to save my life. But HEY – not that many people are gonna be checking out my stitches. They were a labor of love – because I love them. A lot. I used THIS tutorial to make my curtains. I used it more as a guide than anything. Mine are lined and I wanted to make sure I did that right. Two panels can be lined from 1 king size flat sheet. My curtains needed to be 90” long and 54” wide, and it worked perfectly. It took about 2hrs to make 1 panel. It could just be that I’m slow, though.
I think it made a huge difference in my living room. Now I gotta talk Judd into a new couch (I’m thinking leather to break up the throw up of beige) and I’ll be pretty content with my living room. The big cabinet from my MIL is coming along! Pictures coming soon!
I know you’re all tired of hearing about my living room so I’ll try to keep these posts to a minimum from here on out.
Now, back to the regular programming…
Nakey baby! (Washcloth for modesty.)
