Living Room Curtains!


I almost didn't write this post.

The living room is a disaster.



It's spring cleaning month--and things get much much worse before they get better.

But the William Morris Project isn't about perfection, right? It's about making things useful, or beautiful, or both, right?

So here we are.

I purchased this panel, by Martha Stewart for Home Depot, when it first appeared. It was hideously expensive (for us) but I had been looking for something for the small awkward windows on the fireplace wall since forever.



And then this one sat here forever. Or so it seemed. I know it was there all winter.

I took it down a couple of days ago. Measured, cut. Sewed the bottom on one panel--and the top (the heading) onto the other. I never, ever seem to measure for my curtains properly and these are a little on the short side.



I'm not sure I even like them. In spite of the modern pattern, they may scream "granny" too loudly, even still.



Can you even tell there's one curtain on each window, now?

I'm working on another project for this room so it will look like this for a bit longer yet!

Good for you! I'm so not handy with the sewing machine (thankfully my husband is but don't tell anyone lol), so we have to coordinate hemming of curtains with schedules. The ones in our bedroom have been waiting for something like 3 years now. Ugh :)

I like the curtains - fresh and spring-like. I have something similar in my master bedroom and I let the bottom edge 'puddle' on the window sill.

I think the curtains are nice in those windows, and I can't wait to see what you're going to do with that paint! :-)

I like them, too! The room has really nice bones--looking forward to seeing it when it's put back together! And I love the paint color!

I like them too, I think those are not too short, just perfect.

I'm really looking forward to the paint project.

Teal paint, I am intrigued...

That is great light coming in those windows. I don't think you would want anything heavier blocking that.
