Yes, they are up, they are filled and new decor is on the walls. However, I'm not writing today to show you her entire room, but to show you her new window treatment (which we actually finished in April, but I am finally posting about it!)
Right around Christmas last year, we purchased Sassy a new quilt to start the ball rolling on her room makeover. It took awhile to agree on one, but she ended up falling for one at Pottery Barn Teen (which they no longer carry). It has a paisley design and lots of fun colors.
Anyway, we took down the pale pink curtains that had been gracing her room, repainted, and put in the new quilt. The next question was window treatments. Obviously the pale pink curtains were not going back up, and since here room faces east, she gets lots of morning sun ~ and that can be tough on a tween :) We ended up purchasing black roman shades, but still couldn't decide on a fun treatment to go with them.
And then, inspiration struck. We were seeing all of these fun fabric scrap banners all over the internet. Like these for example:
I measured the fabric out cut them into random width strips and made sure to cut each strip so doubled up they would fall just below the roman shade when it was fully opened.
Lots of cuts later, we had some pretty piles of fabric strips.
We looped them onto her existing curtain rod ~ no specific pattern ~ just took turns grabbing and looping.
Sassy was (and still is) very happy with the outcome. The colors and fabrics she picked worked perfectly ~ some cotton fabrics, some sheer. And the treatment itself adds just the perfect punch of colors/patterns to tie everything together.
An easy and fun project for us to work together on!
Stay tuned ~ I promise I'll post the rest of her room soon :)
