What a fun fast journey this has been.
As you may remember, I put out an SOS looking for this fabric.
Sold out. No longer in stock. Sorry.
But I'm not a quitter.
I pressed on and searched.
(insert heavenly music)
I spotted this image and tracked her down like a coon dog sniffin' a trail!
I will make it a bit easier for ya'll and just share the link here.
(Now that you are back from purchasing your yardage...hehe..)
I started with clothes pins.
In the past I feared cutting fabric and wallpaper. Fear? Really?
I just cut that baby.
I even may have used kiddie scissors out of Madison's back pack....really.
I moved it around a bit till I got the look I was going for.
No, not balloon shades..remember those?
I had a house full of em!
I folded till it looked about even, which by the way, they are not.
It's drives my husband crazy...ha!
Let's back up a step...
I sewed a liner to the back for a more custom look ;)
It also help add thickness for shape and shade.
I tacked here and there.
I then folded a very tiny amount over a piece of scrap wood.
Small nails worked perfect to hold it into place.
I then screwed the board onto the wall a few inches higher than exsisting window.
I really love how they bring fun back into this kitchen!
Can you guess what color I'm playing with now?
