dovetail gray.
 this paint color covers the majority of our home and i'm in love.

i knew i wanted some dramatic curtains to compliment our bright armoir,
but when i looked up chevron patterned curtain, they were basically non-existent.
i found a couple, but they weren't this dramatic and were way over priced.


so of course i made my own! i'm getting a tutorial ready 
to post if anyone is interested. total cost? about $30. 
and you'll never guess what they're made from. 



what do you think? are they too crazy? or just right?




i'd like a new light fixture, and
the curtains still need a trim at the bottom.
oh, did i mention that this is a no-sew project?

I am so in love with your yellow armoire that I want to kiss it on the mouth! Oh holy gorgeous! Those curtains are amazing... and I want to say you made them out of sheets? Close? Good job cousin! This room is gorgeous! And normally I think that I overuse the exclamation point... but in this case, I think they're necessary!
