Piano? Pillowcase? or Curtain?
I have had this idea for cafe curtains burning a hole in my brain for days. I was up early this morning and decided to just do it. (I was sooo lucky to find this striped fabric last Tuesday--part of the "halloween" fabrics!)
I have long been inspired by this image from BHG. I just love the mix of florals with stripes.
Then, by chance, I came across this photo of the Spade's kitchen in New York.
I'm always intrigued by how others make black and white checkered floors work: so I took a good look at their window treatment. Plain white shades with two different sizes of black horizontal stripes as trim. Love it. I can jazz that up!
But I'm not sure my version makes a happy marriage.
On the sewing table it looked like a fancy pillow case.
When I showed it to my daughter she said it looked like the piano.
And now that it is on the window: I don't know--does it look like a curtain-- or a piano themed pillowcase I stuck in the window?
What do you think?
