THE roman shade

Seriously, I'm not sure when exactly I started this project. At least eight months ago, maybe as much as a year. Pathetic. This baby sat in the UFO (unfinished object) pile for so long I wasn't even sure I'd still like it if I got around to finsihing it. Good news! I do! I love it!

This is curtain recycling project. I made the roman shade from the curtain panels that I bought at Target years ago and that used to hang on this very same window. When I moved my bed to underneath that window late in my pregnancy (the only furniture arrangement that would accommodate the co-sleeper) I could no longer have long paneled curtains. Eventually, after pouting about having no window treatment and missing my pretty red linen paisley curtains, it occurred to me to re-make them. I'm so glad I didn't get rid of them! That is SO not like me.

So, ta-da! I finished that darned roman shade. And it only took a year. Ish.

oh, and yes. I know that I should take a picture where you can see the whole wall, including the bed. But that would require me to make my bed and tidy up the nightstands. Frankly, I'm just too lazy.

This window treatment is incredibly gorgeous! I love its elegant design and these are like my curtains at home which I actually recycled too to make them more appealing. I also bought some new blinds (Indianapolis area) to create more elegance to our windows. A home must have better window treatments (Indianapolis) for it to become more beautiful than ever.
