Baby Nursery – part 3: Curtain DIY

My 3rd post for Baby Nursery… As mentioned in previous post (baby nursey-part 1), the color theme for this nursery is blue and orange. Although blue seems to dominate the room since it’s applied as wall paint color, orange gives a bold character to the room when used as accessories or decoration, curtain is one of them.

Got the fabric for the curtain on sale at $6.69/yard at fabric.com … I had been looking for fabric in orange color, with fun pattern, thick material, and good price. When it arrived I was so happy, it was all that I looked for.. the print quality is nice and the cotton duck fabric looks expensive. If you are looking for customized window covering, instead of DIY project, maybe this website can help PaylessDecor.

Roman Shade DIY

Initially, I planned to replace the aluminum blind in the laundry room with bamboo shade ( here is the link for anyone who is looking for bamboo shade www.paylessdecor.com). But then I wanted something with blue color to match the wallpaper below the ceiling and gave contrast to the yellow wall. Since I got some fabric coupons from JoAnn I thought why don’t just make fabric roman shade using parts of the blind I was going to replace. Voilà, my DIY project for laundry room window!
