I'm in love with Joel Dewberry. Well, okay, maybe just his fabric collections. So, that was the first thing I thought of way back when I was considering a bedroom makeover.
And here he is! Well, actually, here's his fabric in the form of curtains in our bedroom. And more specifically, his Herringbone pattern fabric in the color Pond.
I love how bright and airy they are with just a touch of pattern. They play really well with my Urban Outfitter Sunshine Medallion shams! (Oh, and with my name tag from Creative Estates, hanging on my lamp... :)
And guys, they were so simple. I ordered 5 yards of this fabric on Etsy, from Lily Bella Fabrics. I asked the shop owner, Christy, if she would mind cutting the 5 yards in half, into two 2.5 yard pieces. She graciously agreed!
(I figured, better someone who works with fabric every day to cut them, because heaven knows I would make them all wonky!)
When they came in the mail, I pulled them out, ironed each fabric panel, cut off the selvage (the white strip on each side) and clipped them in using curtain ring clips that I bought for $5 at Home Depot.
Yep, no hemming. Lazy man curtains.
I think you can probably guess that I'm not really all nit-picky about finished edges. So, I probably will never actually hem them, because I certainly can't tell the difference. What do you think?
Yep, I have one glaringly orange lamp, and one black lamp. I painted the orange lamp and then realized how awful it looked so I've been stuck with that for a month. I may try to go a little more red with it and see if that works. What color do you think I should go with for the lamps? Or just stick with the original black? I feel like there's too much black going on in there. Hm.
A few more projects to work on and share, but Operation: Curtains has been completed!
Have you made any curtains lately?
Are you a hem or no-hem kind of girl?
