I mentioned last week that I am focusing on completing finishing touches throughout my house this year. My first project was to finish my dining room curtains. I’ve had a pair of these Ikea curtains for several years that haven’t ever been put to use. I knew I wanted simple white curtains that would let maximum light into my small formal dining room and thought they would be perfect.
I cut off the tabs at the top of the curtain and edged them with a band of Calais Blue Linen from Calico Corners.
Of course I didn’t realize until I was completely done sewing the first panel that I had sewed the pattern on upside down. Argh! I decided to leave the pattern and from far away it doesn’t really make any difference.
And, in other housekeeping news…I’ve started a pinterest board to gather inspiration and information for my basement family room re-do. I’ll share my first steps in the design process with you next week. Have a great weekend!
