A few weeks ago you got a little peek of my living room drapes when I showed you my new lumbar pillows.
These drapes actually came from Ikea in a package of 2 for $24.99! I have always loved the relaxed feel of white grommet drapes, but knew I needed to add a little punch of color to tie in the rest of the space.
I decided on the yellow Moroccan fabric that I also used on recovering the rocking chair last fall. I also fell in love with these curtain rods in brushed nickel from West Elm.
Because the drapes were pretty long and my ceilings are 9ft, it took a while to cut the fabric to the right length. But once the fabric was cut, the rest was easy! I turned each side under 1/4 of an inch and pressed it with an iron. I pinned the fabric in place along the edge of the drape and stitched 1/8 of an inch on all four sides. (BTW..I did have pictures of these steps, but can I find the SD card with them? Nope!...so sorry for all the words and no pictures!)
If you don't know how to sew, no problem! You could also turn each side under like above and then use stitch witchery to adhere the fabric to the drape! I use stitch witchery all the time and it is fabulous!
I was very excited to finally have some curtains in this space. It really brings your eye up and creates a more open feel to the living room. And...I love how they blend with the new pillows!
