Does anyone else suffer from decorating indecision?
I’m raising my hand high on this one, even waving it around a little.
Sometimes I have the hardest time finally deciding to take the plunge and actually commit when I am buying decorating items. I think the top three things I have the hardest time committing to in decorating is:
I loved the pattern and colors. It tied in navy, which I am trying to be the cohesive factor in my apartment decorating, while also bringing in the other blues in the room. Perfect-o! I couldn’t believe that it was that easy for me to pick – with no regrets. I guess there is magic in the air.
When the fabric arrived I immediately went to town sewing curtains using this method (more details here).
- Cut fabric and backing to size for curtains.
- Pin together and sew all the way around, leaving one hole to be able to pull the curtain through.
- Pull curtain through and hand sew curtain up.
- Iron and hang!
Although hanging this round was a little different. I didn’t have a double window curtain rod and wasn’t thrilled with hanging a curtain rod in the apartment. Plus, I knew I would never close the curtains with the items in front of it.
I did have to take the extra step and sew little loops on the back of the curtains. I used extra ribbon and sewed them every 6 inches (my fabric was 54 inches). I then hung the command hooks 3 inches apart on the wall. Then you just hang the loops of the hooks and fluff out your curtains!
It’s as easy as that.
Now, how dramatic a difference do those curtains make in that room?! I can’t tell you how often I just go stare at them in my studio. I find myself just hanging out in there more too, because it is so pretty. Also, don’t you think curtains just finish a room?
Now it’s time to start thinking about curtains (and a new duvet and artwork) for the bedroom to make that space look as pretty too!!
Minted was generous enough to provide me with the fabric for this post. I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are my own!
