...well, sort of. The living room curtains are ones I found here wrapped up in towels in the top of a cupboard in the hall. After living here for a few years..and wondering what was up so high and wrapped and pinned up in big bath towels....I finally dug them out and looked inside.
Sturdy, heavy, lace curtains'
At a garage sale some months ago I found an entire stack of curtains, all shapes and sizes, all with similar print. Some valances had tiny polka dots instead of the stripes...so sweet. I haven't found a use for those yet, but I will.
I love the double ruffles.
They were all white..and so pretty. But I wanted a change..so I stitched the white valances that matched the panels, to the backs of the two rose covered valances..so that the lace showed at the bottom of the dips. It's hard to see in the photo's because I waited until too late in the day when the light was bad. Attaching the lace so that it showed at the bottom of the ruffled valances...made them seem as though it all went together.
At first I was...not sure I liked it..but after adding the lace, it is rather cute.
Even in this photo it's hard to see the lace peeping through where the rose valance dips up. Can you see it? It ties the two fabrics together more. Well..anyway...I think so. I have lots of material left over.
Another thing you cannot see is that there are gold roses mixed in and they match the walls.
Who knows. It had the right colors so I added it...for now. I will probably remove it...
Perhaps it would not look so heavy if I did.
Yep..took it off..much better.
Love to all of you,
I took a picture..but I can't get it to download.. :(
