You won’t believe that I actually got this $50.00 + a yard fabric for……drumroll…….only $5.00 a yard!!! Yep, crazy heavy, super soft chenille fabric for $5.00 a yard. My friend has a friend that has a friend….no it was just my seamstresses friend that buys bulk fabrics in auctions and such and this happened to be one of the fabrics in the group. (so happy!)
I have a lot of fabric left to sew pillows if I want to. I’m sure I will.......someday :-)
I did have an inspiration picture from an old magazine I kept to copy. I recommend EVERYONE to pin or collect pictures of things they fall in love with so that when it comes time to be able to build or design you don’t have to re-invent the wheel, you have rooms right in front of you to copy. You will make a lot less mistakes in designing you home if you follow that one simple rule. So go ahead and PIN this drape (If it’s your style…..you know!)
So let me show you again the BEFORE and AFTER shots of the drapes:
Total I spent around $125.00 on fabric, the rod and the hooks. I am a little surprised at how much it changed the room. I think it looks so much classier and lush…..What do you guys think??
I just realized too that I never put up the final picture of my entry/foyer so I thought I'd tag it onto this post.
You can barely see the matching iron grilles outside the two sidelight windows but they really add a lot to the rustic Tuscan look.
There you have it! My new Living Room Drapes!
