New window treatments! Finally


This is our BEFORE picture. I liked the grouping but thought it was too small. I have been wanting to do a window treatment forever... but they can be expensive and I already had the blinds up so it kind of got put on the back burner. Then last month I found a FABULOUS deal ($2 for a pair of sheers) at Target and decided that it was time to work on them!

We bought the pre-primed mdf and cut and pieced it together for the boxes....

Added the moldings for aesthetic appeal!
Painted them a high gloss to match the trim on the doors...

I just hung the sheers with a cheap spring bar! I love how it softens the light coming in from outside! Our room gets very warm in the summer... I think this will help! I like how it fills up the wall space too!

Very darling. This will also keep the extra leering neighbor eyes out of your bedroom. You know the ones that try to peek through the cracks of blinds! JK

You did a great job on your first link up! Thanks for coming to my party. I am so impressed you made those cornice boards. And I am laughing of the picture of your hubby holding it up. Our poor guys get stuck right in the middle of all this blogging stuff, don't they?
Precious!
Your curtains definitely fill up the space nicely.
Blessings,
Traci
