Dining Room Curtains

I finally cut and hemmed the Ikea curtains I hung a few weeks ago.  If you saw my Facebook post, then you know I just hung them up right out of the packI was trying to make sure I really wanted to go with white curtains before I cut them up and couldn't take them back. 

I washed each panel so they would shrink before I cut them.  After washing, I cut each panel in half.  I hemmed the raw side edge of the panels using stitch witchery and hemmed the bottom using the hem tape that came with the panels.

The white panels make the room clean and simple.  I plan to add color in other ways.  Maybe a blue or red sideboard on the stenciled wall.  I've been looking for a nice round mirror to go above the sideboard.  I don't want too much action on that wall competing with the stencil.

Hopefully I can find a bright piece of artwork to go between the windows.

Look how far we've come so far.
