All About Windows

Hey guys! How are you all doing? It’s almost Labor Day Weekend! Before I leave all of you to enjoy your 3-day vacation, I’m dropping by with some interior design tips, and this week we’re focusing on windows (You probably thought I was referring to the OS, huh?). The good news is that you don’t have to shell out big bucks for expensive curtains! You can DIY, believe it or not!

Patchwork Drapes
Use two simple fabrics with different shades and cut one of them in a square shape to create a patchwork effect. See-through or sheer fabrics are more recommended to create a soft, shimmery look.

Fringes
Get that quaint cafe window look by using dyed linen strips. Simply cut a simple white linen, cut them into strips, and dye them into different colors. You can use 1 tablespoon of craft pain and mix it with a gallon of water, but make sure to test the dye first to experiment with the saturation. Hang to dry then iron the fabric before putting up on a curtain rod.

Chevron Shade
Play around with geometric patterns to achieve this look called chevron stripes. You can create your own triangle shape out of cardboard and pencil to trace lines. Place painter’s tape, use a brush or roller with the pattern to paint on fabric. Remove the tape and let it dry before hanging.
