So I don't know if y'all are aware of this, but when I'm not blogging, I'm actually making a living! Hee! These are the draperies I was telling you about last week that are just my favorites ever, I think. The flash washed out the fabric, but the no-flash pics REALLY sucked, so this is what you get.
The striped fabric is a faux silk that I could have sworn was real silk when I found the swatch...and I am really good at knowing my fiber content, people...so you KNOW it's a good faux silk. The embroidered banding and swag fabric is a poly too, which is pretty obvious from the shine. The tasseled onion fringe is a linen/rayon blend.
Aren't they purty?This is the same client's LR, which we worked on last year. It's still a work in progress, and I've decided that we need to add swags to these panels too, because they are WAY too boring now that we've got the DR looking so good.
The embroidered silk I used on the pillows is what I want to make the swags out of. It's $82.99/yd at Calico Corners, though, so we'll see. I may have to come up with plan B if she doesn't want to spend $500 on fabric alone....lol.
The next project is going to be getting rid of that black marble surround on the FP. It looks BAD in here.
This is the office window I did last year too...upholstered cornice with banded drapes. This too is a room in progress. We just picked out some really nice swivel rockers the other day for one side of the room.
That's it from me today. Kathleen, her friend Emily and I, are off to Lake Placid this afternoon. I'm going to bring my laptop in case there's a wireless connection I can snag. BF's fishing tournament is EARLY Sunday morning, so he's not coming with us, which is cool because now it can be a GIRLY trip! (There's a bead shop, people! Somehow I don't think BF would be into that, do you?)
I'll catch you on the backside! Have a good weekend!
