A New Project

Remember my post from the summer about a fabric shopping trip?

They had a one day warehouse sale and I picked up a few remnant bolts of fabric and this is one of them:

Did I mention that each bolt was $4.00? Yes, $4.00 for however much was on each bolt! This one has approximately 4'ish yards. I snapped it up quick (it was one of those kind of sales) The color caught my eye immediately. It is a perfect compliment to my new bedding.

The fabric is a Duralee! Don't you love how different the pattern is?

Bold, modern, free spirited and feminine...

You know? The adjectives that I would hope someone would use to describe me...

The plan is to slice it down the middle (it is 60" wide), line it, and make 2 symmetrical drapery panels to hang on either side of the window in my master bedroom. To keep it even simpler and get as much height out of this fabric as possible I am thinking of using clip rings at the top to hang them.

So, what do you think?

And furthermore...Should we paint the walls?

Check out the finished look here.

As far as Lucas rephrasing classic phrases:
And dont forget what Lucas called the Nursing Home recently..... This is a Nursery for Old People!
Grandma Sparks said that he spelled it out perfectly!!

I love the fabric! You are so talented! I still get compliments on my valance! Oh, and we just did our room in blue and brown(ish) paisley. We didn't even talk about it...twinsies?!

Alli and Phil said...

Tina, that is awesome! We really are twinsies and I love it. I finished the panels on Friday and I can't wait to post what they look like! I am really happy with them:)
