My first own crafty post!
So my boyfriend and I worked like mad fools to give our home that we put up for sale as appealing to the buyers as possible! Since our agent knew I had a capability of sewing she set me to the task of creating new window treatments for our very tired looking windows. Sadly I do not have a before picture. Please imagine some horrid looking vertical blinds
Since this was my boyfriend's home I felt intimidated putting my thumbprint on it. Funny how when put to task it has really come to reflect some of my personal tastes!
Since the house has been sold, I am happy with the finla results, (also my boyfriend's mother who helped with these!
Here they are for your viewing pleasure!
The main entry...
Next, to welcome you is the kitchen!
This one took three attempts before I got the exact vision! Here it is in all it's glory, exactly like I wanted it.
...and closer now! See the stitching detail!!
The frame for the window treatment was made by my boyfriend. I stapled the fabric parts to that they can be washed or changed by the next owners.
Next room to welcome you is the living room/ dining room. These two rooms share the same wall so the window treatments had to be the same in my mind. The fabric was chosen by my boyfriend. I am not particularly partial to florals... but it does work for this room.... (sorry no picture of the wall with both window treatments)

Living room window
Moving on to the Fun rooms! The master bedroom!!!
It was soooo hard to find something to go with these mustard coloured walls. I walked many a fabric store before I found the prefect fabric match. A valance up to the ceiling, as suggested by my boyfriend's mom would give a stately look and long sheer like drapes one the side. This would give a male and female look for a master bedroom... or so I believe
Closed drapes (looks more elegant at night!)
The result was to continue with the same look, yet with a difference for the ensuite with a cafe rod look with pleats at hte bottom and a valance the same at the top.
Last to welcome you, the two additional rooms. (Both rooms are the same) These window treatments are near to my heart for some reason. I fussed over them more than the others and am really proud of them. I additionally added to the structure of these with a 1/4" doweling at the top so that the fabric would not flop down.
Whew!!! All done!! One Week after the house was on the market it was SOLD!!! My boyfriend's mother claims is the great sewing work!
