Let's back up. This was how the room started.
Okay. Enough heckling myself.
Ta Daaaaa! I love it. I find it very energizing. I wanted to do a strong curtain in here to balance the green. The problem was the cost. Because these windows get full afternoon sun, I would have to line them or they would fade. The cheapest ready-made curtains I could find that were well-lined were $25 a panel. Doesn't sound too bad until you see that I need four of them, and, frankly, we're cheapskates. I looked for months on ebay and online, scoured fabric stores, and even tried to find tablecloths with cool patterns that I could make into curtains. Nothing was "it" and finally we just decided that a year of looking was enough already. Hancocks had a sale, and I took the plunge with a fabric I had fallen in love with months ago but hadn't chosen because of the cost.
I'm on my way toward getting this room the way I want it. I'll keep you updated with each project!
And, I should add, all the pillows are going to be recovered and the sad little yellow chair is leaving. I wanted to try to reupholster it, but it's way beyond my meager talents and every time you sit in it, little balls of foam come flying out.
