Went and bought some fabric for the nursery curtains… (amazing how cheap fabric can be when you only buy 1/2 a foot of it!)
Chose a dark bluish-green to match the swan motif and add a bit more color to the room.
Started by cutting out some window trim…
…created a couple window sills…
…stained them and started gluing the first sill and trim in.
Did the same for the back window.
Added the curtain rod for the first window…
Then started to make the curtains. Figured I would use the ‘fringed’ edge as inner trim.
Realized that if I hemmed the curtains, they would become stiff…so I used some non-fraying liquid instead on the edges.
Used the tiniest little slip stitch to create the pocket for the rod to go through.
Tried the first panel on the window…
Then finished the other one and put it up.
The tie-backs are just temporary…I will hopefully find something better, as well as arrange the pleats more carefully.
But for now, one of the sets of curtains is almost done, and they can blow in the breeze while the kids play with the cat and toss more books on the floor.
You are proceeding very fast!!! I’m really impressed 🙂
Well, now that the floor of the room is done…it’s going a lot easier. 😉
