before and after curtains

058When we first moved into our new house (back in June) Asher’s room came with 2 panels of fabric as curtains. Seriously the edges are just selvage. I bought the fabric and even made the first curtain for Asher’s room, but it took 5 months to make the second one.



Both of these fabric came from Ikea (I could tell from the selvage). The new curtains have black out material behind them but the room is still fairly bright for the midday nap. Closing them makes the lighting seem like that of a rainy day. I need to figure out what to do with the palladium window Shades are expensive to have custom fit.

  1. I think I would have made long curtains that go up above the whole window-- possibly from ceiling level for it not to be a strange line. Dunno if you have a odd or unusually tall ceiling there though.

    There seem to be special curtain rods for the arch part of the window, but it seems like a big pita to me.
