Happy Christmas to me in one week (or so)! After living in our new home for a little over two years, I am finally getting those window treatments I have coveted. I absolutely love our home, especially my kitchen. It is a lovely shade of pale aqua blue (Sherwin Williams "Quietude"), has amazing, "ginormous" molding, and 10 foot ceilings. Can you see the 10 foot ceilings in our breakfast room? Of course you can! (Sometimes I wonder if they are too high.)
Can you tell what is missing? What would make this room so much cozier and warmer? You guessed it: WINDOW TREATMENTS! I had so much fun picking out the fabric and trim. Do you remember when you found "the" dress or "that" amazing pair of shoes? That's how I felt when I found these!
The pomegranate fabric will be the main treatment with the yellow window pane fabric as a medium width band along the bottom. As soon as they are up, I will certainly post pics in celebration!
I am also in the midst of covering the cushions of the breakfast room chairs. Poor things... with boys, these cream cushions never had a chance! So on my fabric buying pilgrimage for window treatments, I stopped by the bargain bin outside Material Things (in Aiken) and found this amazing silk stripe that will match the window treatments just perfectly! And at the bargain price of only 7.00 per yard, I bought much more than enough to cover the cushions many times over. (Remember my two testoterone-y boys?!?)
Before and After
And my mother-in-law and I did this all by ourselves!
Keep following as I will be unveiling the "new" breakfast room soon!
