Ikea Curtains: Upcycled






I'm currently working on decorating my guest bedroom. I decided to go with a yellow & gray color combo and I LOVE the way it is turning out! I painted the walls gray but when it came to window treatments I had a bit of a dilemma.  I knew yellow curtains would be too much so I thought white would look good.  But when I put them on the walls it just looked too blah.  Enter my awesome mother.  We picked up some cheap white curtains from Ikea (love the ones with grommets!) and some yellow & gray fabric from Joanns. 

(Since I have a phobia of sewing machines my mom did all the work on these!)  She cut the curtains, inserted a panel of fabric, and sewed it all together.


Don't they look fabulous?!  I am so happy with how they turned out.  It gives just the right pop of color in the room without being overbearing.  Stay tuned later this week when I show you the finished room.  I have a few finishing touches to do and then it will be all ready for our guests to arrive in a couple weeks! :)

  2. Great job! I like the pop of yellow. It's just enough and not too much.

  3. This is also a great way to extend the height of your curtains from standard 84" to around 96" which draws the eye up and makes your windows appear larger.
