Well, after five days of being snowed and iced in, we finally changed out of pajamas and ventured out of the house this weekend. The draw for Mexican food outweighed the danger of any lingering ice! I thought the four of us would surely go ‘Redrum’* on each other, but it was actually a very nice week.
It would have been even better had I known ahead of time, so I could stock up with supplies for the final projects in Babygirl’s Room (like ceiling paint!!!). But we had fun creating things for Valentine’s Day (I’ll show you this week), and playing Musical Mirrors & Rugs in the house. You know this fun game, rearranging rugs and re-hanging pictures and mirrors! I love how mixing up the things you have makes everything feel new again.
Enough about all that, much too long ago, I showed you the DIY Drapes I was creating for the Big Girl Room. I created a pattern on the drapes, but soon realized the window was too narrow to appreciate it.
I planned on hanging the drapes much higher, but I still wasn’t happy with the result. The goal was to make the window appear larger, but the pattern only seemed to muddle the space. Then a rockstar reader, Lisa, from Trapped in North Jersey suggested that I add a pelmet box like she did in her bathroom.
*Tell me you know this reference!
Update: See the final window and pelmet here!
