I showed you my DIY Dining Room Artwork the other day, and told you that curtain panels were in the works. So, I'm working on that right now, and started at one of my favorite places - Target. And I'm not kidding when I say started. Originally I picked up these three panels.
With a goal of making paneled drapes like the ones found in my inspiration photo:
But when I brought them home, I realized the brown drapery was too light and the blue wasn't the right blue. So, I took them back and opted for a darker brown panel, and kept it basic - dark brown and beige. Boring or classic?
Did I mention when I returned the panels and bought different ones they were on sale for $12 each? Nothing boring about that!
So, here's my current conundrum. Before I tackle this sewing project (I break out into hives at the mere mention of the "s" word), what do you think? Don't worry, I have jury rigged some options for you to noodle on before making a decision.
Option #1: Brown panels with a cream center stripe (please excuse the crudeness of your design choices here):
Option #2 - Cream panels with a dark brown stripe in the center.
A reminder of my dining room space -
I'm leaning towards the brown ones with the cream center stripe at the moment. But I would really love it if a Sewing Fairy showed up at my doorstep and could make some panels in three colors that blended beautifully.
Or could I force the blue into the palette? See the rug above vs. the blue in the drapes below?
And just between us, I'm starting to question my choice of wall color in here. It seems to be taking on more of a green undertone, and while I'm trying to ignore it, it's gnawing at me. Maybe new drapes will serve as a distraction.
Or do I just say to heck with it and buy some drapes online? Even though I can't find what I want online...
How's that for wishy washy? What do you think? Sometimes having fresh eyes is just what you need, right?
