its about time!

We move so often, I am constantly making new curtains.

This time I was simply not interested...so I took some green ones we used in our living room in the last house and put them up in the bedroom.

After a year of seeing them....WAY too short and thin, Dean 'urged' me to either make some or buy a new bed set that included some!

After searching for ANOTHER year, I came to the conclusion that I would revamp the green ones. I just could not bring myself to spend the amount of money I've seen on new bedding and curtains!

So......I begin searching for fabric...which took about 6 months.

I found some on sale and used it to lengthen the curtains and to make the valances. I didn't actually like the valances at first so I ran out and bought some tassel fringe and added it to them.

Now I love them!

here is the side view so you can see how it ties into the bedding.

So after almost 3 years, the master bedroom is COMPLETE ( except for the crown moulding we want to add...)

On another note...I ADORE this medieval tapestry fabric but cannot find it ANYWHERE...not even online.
I only had a remnant...but would love more....if any of my sewing friends know where to find it, PLEASE let me know!

What a great idea, they are beautiful!!! I was just looking at ours the other day, we've had them since our 1st son (who is now almost 8) was born, made by my mother-in-law. Thanks for the inspiration, I'm GONNA have to put a new twist on those old curtains:)

I like what you did!

Re-vamped bedroom curtains are on my UFO list and I planned to do something similar to what you did. It will help de-stash too!

Thanks for reminding me to put it on my list!
