Festive Red Pom Pom Curtains

I wasn't loving how our blue ikat curtains were looking with all the Christmas decorations in our great room.  See what I mean:




So I decided to make a curtain change.  I gathered my materials...a pair of Ritva curtain panels from IKEA, some red sewing thread and several yards of red pom pom trim.

I pinned the trim to the edge of the curtain, and then sewed a straight line.  It was in the words of Lucky, 'easy peasy pumpkin easy'.  I also took the extra 10 minutes to hem the curtains to the appropriate length.  There are many curtain panels in our house and the only ones that are actually hemmed and not just safety pinned to the appropriate length are the curtains in the kids rooms, and this pair of panels.  Some day I'll get to the rest of our panels:).



And now for the after:














So much better...and we'll be able to use them for Valentine's Day too!!

  2. Hey! Your stockings changed color too! Although I liked the green ones, they have a little more individual personality now! (You can't sneak these changes past us microscopists.) I love the little splashes of RED all over, and the pillow is way cool; it's an elegant reindeer IMHO. I like the color that the curtains add too. I'm still hoping for another "Burt antics" update before the end of the year... Merry Merry to the Lucky Charm family! -Mary

    1. Too funny Mary! I've been working on those stockings for about a week now (on and off). I have two more to sew, and then I should be able to write up a post! I did think I could sneak them in, but you caught me!!

      We'll see if I get another Burt post up. He only has a few more days left to come up with some post worthy hiding places:)! Pressure is on!!:) Merry Christmas Mary!
