I am in the process of redorating my daughters bedroom. The first thing that needed fixing was the curtains.

BEFORE - I purchased these curtains on clearance from Target. Behind them is the vertical blinds. Together, it gave the room an orangey glow, which I hated Sad

AFTER - I wanted her room to have a light glow. The sheer curtains are from the nearest op shop - $2AU. The purple ones are made from an old bedsheet I had at the bottom of the linen cupboard. The curtain ties are made from scraps of white felt and a ribbon I had laying around. The flowers at the top were lights I purchased for my wedding that I never used, I just cut the electricity cord off and draped them over. I took the photo at night.

I am very pleased with the results, considering this was one of my first 'biggest' sewing projects Smiley
Thanks for looking Smiley
