I have the urge to redecorate - already - and I've only been in my new home for 6 months.
I love change...and I haven't had purple in my house since the bedroom I had as a teenager.
So, off to Marshall's and TJ Maxx for a few accessories....
And to Joanne's for fabric...and I removed the soft cornices I made this past summer:
The best thing about this window treatment is that it is so easy to make and inexpensive, too. I started with a paper pattern of the shape I wanted:
and I cut 2 out of fabric and lining:
Then stitched them together on 3 sides, clipped, snipped and turned then right side out, leaving the top open:
I hot glued a trim on the bottom...
Stapled the top to a 1" x 1/4" slat of wood and nailed them to the inside top of the woodwork:
And then took this crappy photo...how on earth can you take a photo, sans flash, when it is so bright and snowy outside?
So I waited til nighttime to take this photo:
Total cost: under $6.50 per window
Fabric - $4.50 (with enough leftover to make a pillow)
Lining - $3.00
Wood - $5.00 (a little flirting with a guy at Lowe's and he will cut it for you)
Trim - had it leftover from another project
Now you can see why it is so easy and cheap to change these window treatments! Off to make a few pillows....
