family room curtains


After having a bolt of fabric sitting in my family room since this summer, it was finally time to turn it into what it was meant to be – curtains for my family room.  I don’t enjoy sewing, but I do it because I can make curtains better than ones I can buy at the store (and for a LOT less money.)  If I wanted to purchase long, full curtains that were exactly what I wanted (for all four windows), I would spend hundreds of dollars.  Instead, I spent about $22/panel.

I made them the same way I made the panels in my living & dining rooms.  I used the same aesthtic idea as well…use a bold, blue & white fabric to set off everything else and make the room pop.  The fabric is from  It’s now $8.98/yard, but when I bought it, it was $6.98/yard and I used a coupon code on top of that.  The curtains rods are by Martha Stewart from Home Depot.




I love the way this room is coming together.  I have four more panels to make though.  Ugh.


…and here’s a better picture of my Green Grocer sign.  Someone asked about stencils I use, so here is the post where I share all of my secrets for making a sign. 



I also hung a boxwood wreath (given to me by the Wuslu girls) in my kitchen window.  I love boxwood.  It looks so lush and fresh.  Like having a bouquet of flowers, but it only needs to be spritzed with water once a month.  That’s my kind of greenery.



I also found some more Ralph Lauren pillows at TJ Maxx.  You may remember my plea for help when I only bought two green ones and wanted more.  Well, I bought all four pillows they had, so I wouldn’t make that mistake again!  These are very grain-sack-ish and will work in almost any room in my house.  They’re on the family room sofa at the moment, since i’m focusing my attention on that room.

 That’s all for today!  I’m going to be sewing up a storm tonight and headed to Lucketts and the airport tomorrow (to pick up my mom!)
