Drop Cloth Curtains

You most likely thought I was never going to show you the curtains hung…..
Truth be told I couldn’t stop adding more ruffles, they are addicting.
I know some of you were bit worried and thought about a ruffle  intervention, I’m OK…
really, I am.
l just I needed a wee bit help hanging the 10 foot pole,
the hubby is a busy man!

Now you know where I hung the silhouettes.

I want you to know these drapes are so imperfect but you know what?
They make me happy! 
I sewed on ruffles wherever my heart desired
and enjoyed every minute of it!
Here is the before….oopps never painted over the old blue in that corner.

Yes, someday I dream of something like this from Restoration Hardware.

No, silly not for the wine storage, although that would be nice.
All these little niches could be filled with crafting supplies!

  15. I love the ruffles and the chandelier just makes it over the top beautiful. I have a question for you. I was using your tips and thank you they came in handy, but I deleted the top bar and could not get into my blog to do a post and I almost freaked out until I remembered a back way in. My question is; how do you do your posting or get into your design?

Have you written about that before? If so, point me in the right direction so that I can get some pointers! 🙂
