Golden Delicious!!!

Don’t you just love it when you stumble upon something that just happens to be perfect for a project you have in mind?

I have been contemplating on what exactly I wanted to do for window treatments in my new craft room.

The other day I was at Hobby Lobby when my friend, Joyce and I spied this cute mustard colored fabric. On clearance no less, $4 a yard instead of $8.

It was sheer and oh so dear!  Remember this is a basement so I didn’t want to block out the light.  Even though it’s what they call a daylight basement with large windows.  Still, when crafting you need all the light you can get.

I bought 2 yds. and a roll of burlap ($3 half off) to tie it up with.  After playing around I found that It only covered half the window so I went back for 2 more yards.  And another roll of burlap.

This is the easiest curtain I have ever made.  I just put a 2” casing at the top and hemmed the bottom.  The sides are the selvedge, so why mess with it?  I then found the center and just gently gathered it up in my hand.  Put the burlap over the top and tied the bow. . .voila!

See how the fabric resembles dotted Swiss? Thought I would mention that they also carry it in white.  Not on clearance, but $8 is still a super good price!

I love how my vintage pillars frame the window.

Look at these darling envelopes I bought from my hairdresser, Shalana. At $1 ea. I couldn’t resist!

Notice how my barn doors are the same color as the curtains?  A match made in heaven!

And wait till you see what I found at Target for $29.99.

This SA-WEET mustard colored ottoman. How could I not bring it home with me?

Not only is it cute, but functional.  It opens for storage.

We did get the craft table in so I will be doing a complete reveal next week. Still organizing and need to get a chair.

Farm kitchen is almost ready too. Can’t wait to share and see what you, my friends think!

Jann

They are absolutely gorgeous! Look so rich in that colour way too. I agree....the ottoman had to come home with you as well. I can't wait to see the rest of your finds. The room is looking really lovely. I bet you won't want to work there for a while as you'll just be sitting there and 'enjoying'. ,! Joan

This is so amazing - lovely, lovely fabric - I love how you created these curtains with the burlap - looks beautiful. So cool that all these things, the curtains, the barn doors and the ottomon coordinate so well. We're supposed to get a Hobby Lobby in the next town over - so excited! I hope you have a blessed weekend,
Kathy

I am a lover of gold so your curtains are a hit with me! Such a clever idea....the mix of burlap with the pretty fabric is lovely. I have the same Target ottoman, so cute. Jane

Hello Jann, Yes that little stool is so cute. I did a lot of the sweet mustard yellow accents in my kitchen. I never thought I would love the color so much. I have been so busy blogging the last couple of years my craft room has been taken over by a crazy blogging gal!
Blessings, Roxy

I love your curtains and I love the perfect match to the barn door. I rummaged an old door like that off of my next door neighbor's property (he tore down a shed and said I could have anything I wanted) this weekend. It is rather small so I don't know what I'll do with it. It is terribly cute though.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful space Jann and blessings to you, Patti

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Jann, your curtains are very cute and the barn door and ottoman are a great match! Thanks for sharing at my HOME and I'm looking forward to your reveals!

Blessings,

Art and Sand said...

Everything is looking great.

I wish I had a room for creating instead of a space in the garage.

Susan Clayton said...

Don't you just love it when things come together? Loving the burlap and yellow. Filing that combo for future reference - my dinning room is golden yellow.

Kara said...

Great idea with the curtains. I am so doing that in my bedroom.
