Earlier this summer I was playing around on websites trying to get ideas on curtains and some other ideas for Harpers nursery. I had the bedding, I had already picked out the furniture, I knew what paint colors I wanted. But I had not idea about curtains, and decor.
I had searched EVERY where for full length curtains, but found nothing that either matched or that I liked. Luckily I ran across this awesome blog. I looked at it for hours..(this is before I took a nap everyday and totally skipped out on making my family dinner that night!)
Anyway, I researched this before we went on vacation. And the boys and I went to a local fabric store ( I see many trips to said store in the future... not with kids!) I had a hard time deciding on my own between fabric, so I went to my backup selectors.... my three boys. YEP, between texting my mom pictures and having the boys pick out completely random fabric's.. we decided on a pink fabric with white polka dots. And it just so happens to match her crib sheet, and the piping on her bumper and quilt! PERFECT!!!
Anyway, I knew coming home from vacation that this was going to be the first project I tackled. It only took me about a half hour and the best part..... NO SEWING!!! They look great and I can't wait to make more curtains for the boy's room, the windows downstairs, the sliding glass door down stairs, and eventually our room... once we redecorate.
I would have typed more of a tutorial about the curtains, but if you click on the blog link above, they give step by step instructions and seriously, they are super easy to make! YAY!
|After much deliberation, this is the fabric the boys and I picked out.|
Here is the final product! I'll have to take a better picture. I also need to trim up the bottom... I wanted them flowy, but it's a little too much for my taste!
