New Curtains

December 4, 2009 at 4:06 pm 3 comments

When I painted my dining room last year,  I searched high and low for fabric for which to make some curtains.
This chocolate fabric was all I came up with. I loved it, but wasn’t really inspired by it. We don’t get much light in that room, so I was afraid of covering up the window. It faces the backyard where we have common ground, so I wasn’t super worried about privacy either. I decided not to make curtains and leave the window open. I was just going to use the chocolate fabric to reupholster some chairs, so it wouldn’t go to waste.

Well, my favorite fabric store was having a sale a couple of weeks ago. I just went to browse when I stumbled upon this fabric…

It was love at first sight. Immediately I knew that I would use it to make curtains for my dining room. It matched perfectly.

This is a horrible picture…

This ones not much better…

I made the top of the panel with the “Wild Thyme” put a coordinating red stripe at the bottom and then made a gathered skirt out of the chocolate polka dots for the bottom.

I think these are my most favorite curtains I’ve ever made.
