Curtains/Living Room

See, I told ya I'd need something flat after finishing that intricate dress.  Curtains it is! We've had the fabric sitting around for these curtains, to replace some knarley plastic blinds, for an embarrassingly long time. 

Here's the before, complete with peachy beige walls, from last spring:

Whoops, someone in that'd that get there?

We upholstered 2x6s for the header, and the curtains took 2 panels of dec fabric side-by-side each for this huge window. 

Our grey-black-white-teal-watermelon makeover is coming right along, and the last (teeny tiny) step is to replace the entertainment center with an entire wall of built-in cupboards and shelves.  That's a weekend project, right?


  1. you are fast! they look fantastic!

  2. Love the curtains! And I am debating driving to Michigan to steal your white chair.... Just a warning. :)

    And I also must add that that is the funniest/sweetest picture ever! Does she take after her father or what?? ;)

    1. Thanks girl! That chair is totally ikea, but since there's not one of those near you (silly midwest) you might as well come for a visit!

  3. We totally need to! Too bad Jared is going to be spending every single day of his saved up PTO going to out-of-state funerals this month... Boo. I have a feeling that it might be a good thing that we don't have an IKEA near us. I have liked every single thing I see from that place!
