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!
I will be joining these fun parties:
