A Little Splurge Makes A Big Design Impact!

One of the downsides of owning an old home is the non-standard sizes of our windows.  It's not very often I can purchase ready-made drapes so I knew as part of the redesign of our 5-year-old daughter's room, I would need to go custom.  From the top of her windows to the floor is over 91" so I knew the typical 86" panel would not work.

When I heard our local fabric shop was having a 1/2 price sale, I knew it was time to splurge.  Here's the fabric I chose for her two windows so that's 4 separate panels each over 90" in length.  That's a heck of a lot of fabric so I knew I would have to choose carefully because this was going to cover a lot of space.

Here's what I found that was a good match to her blue wall color and right in line with my chocolate/cream color scheme.


Big leaves that were the perfect companion to the flower decal border above her wide baseboards.


Here's one window done and the other window is only about two feet to the right so talk about
impact!

As intimidating as choosing drapery fabric can be, this was definitely a home run and well worth the splurge and she loves them!
