In a future post I'm going to tell you about getting rid of the blue toile wallpaper in my dining room, but today I want to talk about my drapes. In my previous house I needed something to dress up the window that coordinated with my dining set. I found these copper color tablecloths at Bed, Bath & Beyond that were the longest tablecloths you can buy. I used them for side panels around the one large window and for a long swag across the top. We sold our house to someone who planned to rent, so I brought them along to my new old house.
|Have to give credit to SuperDave for installing|
the little rods to hang these. Without the rods, the drapes
would still be lying on my sewing table.
The really funny thing is that I get SO MANY compliments on these drapes, but I don't usually tell people that I made them from tablecloths. Let them think I can afford custome draperies!
Happy Leap Day,
