The next step was to add some curtains...I wanted to incorporate more of the white and leopard print into the mix. What I had in mind could NOT be purchased at any of the local stores (or probably any store for that matter) soooo, I had to make them.
It took me a while to FIND the material I needed as we only have ONE fabric store in the area (a quilting shop) and they didn't have what I was looking for. My next thought was to search the thrift stores...I'm GLAD I did because I found something I could use...A white king size COTTON BEDSHEET for $2.00...PERFECT. I already had some light colored leopard print fabric on hand (which was my inspiration piece for this room redo)...If you will remember, I found it while thrifting a few months back...I got 2 yards for $1.00. I had a little brown fabric left over from when I recovered some pillows on my couch a couple years ago (Yes, I keep things that long)...anyway that was everything I needed...
I cut the bedsheet LENGTHWISE into four pieces to make two pairs of curtains. I added a wide strip of the brown and leopard print to the top of each panel to make a valance type of look and hung them from the rod with clips. I love how they turned out and the best part this project only cost me a total of $3.00.
I have a few more things to do in here before I can say I'm finished (is that ever possible...to be FINISHED with a room?)....I have some cute wall art in mind for over the headboard but I am still looking for just the right frames to finish that up...I still need to do a little something with the lighting...not to mention, I still have to paint the window frames and doors...busy, busy, busy...but I hope to be done by Christmas...wish me luck!!!
Linking up to these great parties...stop by and have a look!!
