Navy-White Chevron Curtains

Thursday, May 2, 2013

They’re finally done! The curtains are up in the office and I’m crossing another project off my to-do list!
Let’s go back about a month, back when I ordered 5 ½ yards of this navy/white chevron fabric:

It’s from fabric.com and was $7.48/yard (after coupon code, I paid $37.28 for my yardage). I was so excited about the fabric, but once it arrived it just sat in the box while I took my sweet time painting stripes. Once I finally finished the stripes, it was time to move on to the curtains.
I used iron-on hem tape (Heat n Bond Ultra-Hold) to “sew” the sides instead of actually sewing. I did sew the rod pocket though!

Then I hung the curtains to see how long I wanted them…and I ended up just cutting the bottom instead of hemming them! I know, super lazy…but the sleeper sofa is going to go in front of the window, so no one will see the bottom. Plus I cut them nice and straight, so you wouldn’t be able to tell unless you were really looking.

And with that, the curtains are up and the office is one project closer to being complete!  

As for the curtain rod, it’s the same one that was already in here. It’s originally from Hobby Lobby. I ended up mounting it a few inches higher than before since my new curtains are longer than the previous ones. It’s a great trick to make the window look larger.

And with that, I can officially cross “Sew curtains” off my to-do list:
Sell current desk on Craigslist

Replace outlets and switches with white ones
Build desk
Buy 2 chairs
Buy pair of desk lamps
Buy and paint file cabinet
Mount TV on the wall
Create a gallery wall around the TV

Buy/build end table
Buy dresser
Paint dresser

Add accessories

  2. I of course love the chevron. I kinda want to live in your office now. I also like the fact that the chevron and stripes don't clash terribly. Thats a relief! I can't wait to see what else you come up with!
