A few weeks ago I was browsing Pinterest, and came across a tutorial for the cutest ruffle curtains. I didn’t even know I wanted new curtains! So, I dropped every project I was working on and started sewing, lots and lots of sewing. It took a week and 21 yards of fabric, but I think they are worth it. I finished the last panel today. Yeah! I still haven’t made the tie backs, but I was so excited, I had to post a few pictures.
The curtains in the tutorial are just under 7ft. long, but I made mine 9 ft. long because my ceiling is so high, I have to decorate with large objects and tall curtains.
See, I told you! How in the world do you decorate a wall that is 21 feet high?? (Just to give you an idea, the bookshelf in the corner is 7 feet tall. Everything I put in this room looks tiny!)
I tried to find a pictures of the window toppers I had there before, but couldn’t find any. It’s just as well, they were a black floral and cut the room in half. I was hoping they would bring down the height of the ceiling, but it didn’t work. We’ve lived in this house for 3 1/2 years and I think I have finally gotten it right. Now, instead of cringing when I walk through the room, I smile big.
