Living Room Drapes

The living room drapes are done!



Saturday morning, my husband and I cleared the living room out to give me plenty of space to lay out my fabric.

Next we hung the curtain rod. We got very lucky at Lowes the night before. A lot of curtain rods and rings were on clearance! We were prepared to paint a metal pipe and add our own finials to keep the price down since curtain rods can cost big $$, but luckily we were able to get a pretty rod for only $15!

We got the one in the middle of this photo
All day Saturday I measured, cut, serged, lined, sewed, and then hung the un-hemmed drapes over night with clips.


On Sunday I took the drapes back down and sewed on the rings.

Finally on Sunday night I hemmed and ironed the bottom of the curtains.

I loooove the fabric and had fun using my serger and sewing machine!

I have made 2 pillows for the couch so far and still have one to go.

The pillows and drapes have added the pop of color we needed in our living room!

I'm so happy we no longer have a plastic drop cloth as our front window treatment:)

Today i'm linking up here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here!
