Several weeks ago I made some curtains for the dining room. I copied the style of my Ikea curtains and took pictures along the way so I should be able to write up a tutorial if anyone out there is interested. I found this fabric at my favorite fabric store, Mary Jo's. It is unlike what I usually buy for my home. It is a multicolor floral print. The fabric is made by Richloom, called Invigodk (sometimes labeled as Invigorate) in Confetti. It is currently available here, at Mary Jo's cloth store.
I started the curtains after I found out I was pregnant and got sick shortly after and forced myself to finish them. To this day I feel sick whenever I look at the curtains. I am hoping that one day the urge to vomit will fade. I hate wasting time and money!!
Aside from the curtains, I have painted the dining room (Martha Stewart- Cumulus Cloud) and finished painting the hutch (hint: I didn't go with aqua or green!), now I just have to paint the chairs. The bright yellow I originally wanted to do definitely doesn't go with the muted shades in the curtains. I am thinking orange?
Warning: don't look too close to the curtain rods... I hung the one on the left and many, many days passed until my husband sweetly suggested he hang the one on the right. He carefully measured but somehow the rods are so not level! Maybe some day I will find the energy to fix it. Probably the same day I find the energy to finally hem the curtains on the left!! Until then I will just keep pretending that they are perfect. :)
