Then later on in the evening, we had a visit from The Hass Girls.
And Claire was "monkeying" around.
I got a call from the window place, and our windows are in!! They will be coming on Monday to install them. The roof was supposed to be done this week, but they delayed due to rain. Hoping they come next week too.So I took down my living room drapes today, and played around with the fabric that I bought for making new ones. I LOVE this fabric. It is a taupe color, with a chenille thread running through it vertically, with chenille balls set radomly all over. It is the perfect match to my furniture! PERFECT. I removed the old drapes, but I will use the rod, which is simply a heavy dowel, which before was covered entirely with fabric. I will be painting it, and hanging the sheers from bronzed circles with clips. What I am trying to decide is....hang the panels with a single layer of fabric, for a real sheer look. Which I like, because I do not want to cover the windew. I don't need to cover it for privacy, so it will be whatever looks best.
Or, hang them with double thickness, which makes the color much more rich, but I hate to block any of the view outside the big picture window.
Okay..you can see where the fabric was doubled, but then hangs in a single layer, about two inches from sill and down. And now...looking at these pictures, I have decided. I will go single layer! I am thinking of doing them in seperate panels....clipped onto bronzed O rings, so that they can slide to the side, or be fanned out at night, if I want. Hmmm, I have a little time to decide. Noah was a good helper!
Doubled on the left, single on the right...mind you, they are not made. They are just literally draped onto the rod. Noah couldn't decide, so he stood right in the middle.
And he was ever so silly too.
While Noah is sleeping, I think I will go put my feet up for a while. Looks like everyone is napping over here.
Oh to be THAT relaxed!!!!!
Happy Hump Day Bloggers!
