I'm in desperate need to get rid of my mini-blinds. They are disgusting and broken, and UGH!
I'm starting easy, because it's many, many moons since I hauled out the sewing machine (remember "Hammer Time?" - remember "Hammer Pants?" - yeah, I made those). I want to make cafe curtains for one window in the kitchen that sits over the sink. The walls are pale yellow. The counter top is a mottled pottery color (not orange, not brown, but just like a clay pot), the appliances are all white.
So, I'm looking for fun and funky prints to buy for curtains this morning, and most of the things I like are labeled "Juvenile." I'm trying not to be insulted, and mostly I'm just giggling at the thought of truly WILD prints, and the look on DaMan's face when I finally get them up.
say...something like this:
But he probably wouldn't have a problem with this:
I love this, but it's a jersey knit, and not at all right for curtains:
... and people wonder why I never get anything done.
So help me out...wild prints, that aren't too dark (my house is light challenged), in the yellow/red/green family preferably. Please?
I promise to write up the whole process of what is sure to be a comedy of errors - Me vs. Sewing Machine vs. Tension Rods, etc.
And!!! Bonus points to those that might point in me in a trying Junque-like fashion of re-using something else to make my curtains.
