|cottage living: toile drapes|
One day, while shopping, I spotted a tablecloth of similar fabric on the clearance aisle. I brought it home and threw it on the table to get a look at it. It looked dull, boring and almost sad.
I then remembered the magazine article! With the help of some push pens, I tacked it up to see what it looked like as a curtain. It looked marvelous!!! I raced back to the store to grab the other one.
I liberated them from a life of horizontal, food stained suffering. Just look how happy they are!
Two dark stained, bamboo shades were found in the clearance bin at Home Depot. They were either getting rid of that size or color. Instead of purchasing one large one, we now have two smaller ones that raise and lower independently of each other and weigh less as well.
Total cost for a fabulous look: $43.00I did something similar in my bathroom. I got the decorating idea from my friend, Chelsea... a deep, olive green bathroom with black and white toile accents. The look would be perfect for my guest bath.
