With the ongoing renovations in the basement, I’ve been craving a project with a little more instant gratification. We tore the carpet out and painted my daughter’s bedroom shortly after we moved in, but haven’t done much to it since that, so it was the perfect project for me. I wanted to give the room a little more personality. I started with the gold polka dot feature wall which I absolutely love! The feature wall was my jumping off point. And it’s what I’m coordinating the rest of the room with.
I wanted to add curtains in a fun fabric, but didn’t want to overrun the room with busy-ness. A gold polka dot wall and crazy busy curtains might be a bit much. We made a trip to Ikea one day to check out their curtains. I didn’t really love any of the pre-made curtains, but I did find this fabric I immediately fell in love with!
The fabric went perfectly with the gold dot wall and incorporated the color of her bed. But when I hung a sample up on her window wall, it was way too busy. After staring at the fabric hanging there for a few hours, I finally decided I could use a small amount of it and use a solid neutral for the bottom. That way I’d get the color without the overdose!
But what fabric to use? I ran to the kitchen and grabbed my drop cloth tablecloth to see if it would do the trick. Yep! Spot on! So the next day I went to Home Depot and Ikea and bought everything I needed and got started.
I think the drop cloth evens out the busy pattern perfectly. These are actually some of my favorite curtains. Like ever! 😉
Be sure to stop back tomorrow when I show you how I made them!
