One of the projects I tackled in April was to make us some decorative curtains for the bedroom. We installed shades when we first moved in, but I never was crazy about how they looked all alone.
First I made easy shades by hemming large pieces of linen/burlap fabric. I hung them and was not enthused with the plain look. (That dog in the picture is Roxy – she was a house guest of ours for a few days – isn’t she cute?!).
I decided to make them faux empire shades, and and was able to do them while the curtains were hanging (talk about dead arm!). Overall I am really happy with the way that these turned out!
