DIY, window treatments

Come to my window

  1. Karen@StrictlySimpleStyle says:

    I want someone else to try it first and teach me everything that could go wrong. Is that asking too much?

  2. Liz says:

    I've been thinking of making my own stencils – how fun would that be to be able to say that I made that wall (or whatever) look awesome?!? Thanks for reminding me that I need to do that. 🙂

    I've never tried anything like this, but I'm thinking I just might!

  4. Flavia @ Estilo Home says:

    That's funny, I was just thinking about stenciling my curtains yesterday! I also love those pricier curtains and was thinking of a cheaper alternative. I'll let you know if I go through with it.

    I like how you make it your own!

  6. my favorite and my best says:

    great ideas!! which drop cloths are you referring to? everytime i go to HOME D there are like 6 different kinds.

  7. Amy says:

    I love everything John Robshaw does. Great idea about using the craft foam to make the stencil. I saw these great panels at Anthro but now I think I can make them.

    I'm glad you liked my photo. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    What a great idea- you have to try it and let us all know how it turns out for sure!

  9. LifestyleBohemia says:

    Great idea! I love the ethnic vibe of the west elm window treatments. I am also shopping for window treatments and will most likely get those for the bedrooms.
    Have a great day!

    Camila…eeeek! dying over here…such a great idea! I love those westelm curtains and have been eyeing them up for awhile now! also love weinrab's designs too, if only she'd come out with budget friendly options!

    Do you know of a good, online site for fabric paint? There's NO hope of finding any in stores down here – and I am truly inspired by your stripes!!

    P.S. – I apologize if you've already noted this – I'm a little behind on my blog reading 🙁

  12. Averill says:

    What a wonderful idea! I even think doing it yourself would yield a more "authentic"/handmade feel than you'd get with anything screen printed.

  13. Miss Wendy says:

    Another great idea! You should try the foam stamp and let us know how it goes.

  14. Blueprint Bliss says:

    Great idea… I can't wait for someone to try this so I can see!

  15. Yansy says:

    I love this idea, I might end up trying it myself.

  16. Maryam in Marrakesh says:

    I haven't stenciled fabric but I have stenciled floors, walls, ceilings, stairs, furniture in my house in Marrakech. *love* it!

  17. Lauren says:

  18. Jen says:

    such a fun idea. I am trying to find drapes in a perfect shade for my bedroom. much harder than expected. although this may be an idea that could work.

  20. Michelle says:

    I'm always torn with pattern in a room…where to place it. I am really wanting this chinoiserrie print in brown cotton for drapes right now…I may do it.

    love these finds – curtains and window treatments seem really difficult to find pre-made. these are really great.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
