Finally, after 9 years, we have window treatments in our dining nook.
I almost can't believe it.
It's been a challenge finding something I liked that would work
on this very wide (110 inches) window without spending a fortune.
Sorry these pictures aren't so great - it's difficult to get good ones with all the light that comes in.
I guess it's a good problem to have since I love having big windows and lots of natural light.
I found these pinch pleated valances at Ballard Designs.
The fabric is actually the same as some throw pillows I have so
I knew I would like the color.
I did have to cut a couple of them to make them fit the width of the windows exactly.
I chose these faux wood curtain rods that I found at Target.
I really like the contrast of the darker wood.
It was pretty much an all day job, getting the rods up and the valances
hung so everything was even and looked good.
just don't look too closely : )
And don't tell anyone, but I may have used masking tape in a few places
to get everything just right - that's a designer secret ha ha!
Here are a few more shots around the dining area.
Here is my old cupboard door that used to be hung near the refrigerator.
The other side of it is a blue/green color which is the side that was showing before.
I flipped it over and now the more subdued, chippy side is showing.
I'm not sure which side I like better!
We like having our options, right?
I had been putting off and dreading this job so it's nice to be able to cross it off my list.
The same valances are hanging over the two windows in the kitchen so I will show you those soon.
Now on to the next item on my list.
Thanks so much for dropping by.
Have a wonderful day!
