New drapes (almost)!

We visited Ikea on Sunday to get more shelving for fabric. Yes, I'm expanding by the day!
Then I saw this:

The drapes in the store/dining room are awfully dated.  This is just what the doctor ordered.  Now to find time to actually make new curtains.

Pin It!

Oh boy! That fabric is going to make beautiful drapes. But I don't envy you the task. :)

Love that fabric! It's dangerous for me to go to Ikea and hang around the fabric section for too long hehe

Some of those big grommets would look cool . . .

You crack me up! You have all that fab fabric coming in daily and you go to Ikea for more! Too funny!!!

Admit it, you're going to make the curtains slightly too narrow and slightly too short so that you have lots of scraps.... :-)

Beautiful choice!

Eek! I bought some of that to make roman shades for the spare bedroom -- but I saw somewhere that someone had used fabric paints and colored some of the flowers...and it actually looked kind of cool!

Beautiful fabric - can't wait to see the drapes, or is it curtains?
