Project Window Covering: Complete

At long last, I can finally check off one more " hurry up and get the home improvement stuff done before the baby comes home" project. It may take me a long time to finish things..... but at least I get it done eventually. LOL! The downstairs curtains are complete! Finally. Hal-le-lu-yer!

These are in the dining room. Sewn by my mother. Beaded by yours truly. I also recovered the seat cushions to coordinate. That's right....Martha-Stewart ain't got nothing on me! Oh wait.. she can cook. Disregard that last statement. LOL!
And behold the living room curtains! All 165 or so inches of hand beaded valance and all. I wanted the curtains to be the same fabric as the dining room but slightly different in design. I love how they turned out!!
These stripes look really beige in this photo. Hmmmm.... they're not. They're olive and sage greens. Like the couch.
To pull it all together the same beading is also on the lamps. It's miraculous what a woman can do with a hot glue gun.
I'm throwing in a photo of my now apple green nursery just to show how perfect the color is. I think it's gorgeous!! It's a little brighter in the photo than in person. Imagine white furniture and pops of hot pink accent colors throughout the room. I can't wait to get it done. Unfortunately, I think it may take me a couple months to complete. The chair I'm going to order takes a month to ship. My bedding won't be finished until mid-May. My yard and flower beds are in bad shape and the deck needs re-stained. I'm gonna have to put those projects ahead of the nursery for now. So stay tuned. I'll keep ya updated.
