Finishing touches

I have been gone for the week on a family vacation. We had a great time visiting the Oregon coast. The ocean was cool and beautiful. A refreshing break from our hundred degree weather.
I have been working on some finishing touches for my craft room.  I love putting the general room together, then stepping back and adding some fun touches like curtains.  These are one of my favorite things to add.  My room started with my chair and moved on from there.  I knew I wanted to add another fun fabric and pattern, and had just the place to start with.  I found this old screen at an antique store years ago.  We took out the screen and stapled chicken wire to the frame.  I then found some bright fabric that I knew would add some fun to my room.
It is the perfect place to hang art projects and fun inspiration, plus it added some fun pattern for my wall of yellow.
I wanted to take the fabric from one side of the room and marry it with the other so I decided to add it to the curtains.  I bought some plain gray panels on clearance and measured and cut some off the top.  I sewed fabric to the top and hemmed the two sides.  Then I took some red ribbon and glued it on the seam to finish it off.  I found some fun door knobs at Hobby Lobby and decided to take ribbon, and hang the curtains off of them.

It was a fun way to finish off and add some personality to the room. Pin It
