Installation of the Week

When does working on a Friday night not seem like work ? When you are hanging out with your parents and installing draperies in their new great/family room. My Dad just completed renovating the sun room and family room to one big great room. He is so handy and can do anything.

I used a paisley fabric for the panels and a coordinating stripe for the valances to keep the room fun. Using fringe and trim is like adding jewelry to your outfit. The onion fringe added a lot to the overall look of the treatment. The back wall was 27 feet wide so it took all 4 of us to lift the board up onto the brackets. It was massive !


While we were there, I recovered the dining room chairs in Fabricut's Ormonde, color: copper. They look really pretty with the orange walls !


My Dad always reads my blog. I know he will be excited to see his room on here...... I love you, Dad !

Wow! Those window treatments are awesome! How blessed that your mom has a handy husband and a seamstress daughter! I'd run you two crazy with projects! Great job!

You did a beautiful job dear Tammy! And your Father's room look fantastic!

Father's who can handle any work around the house are the best.

Your post reminds me of how great my father in that too and I miss him around oh so much...:-(

Hope you have a lovely weekend, cheers: Evi

Good to know that all "kids" like to eat their mother's cooking. I'm even making my mom make her famous ham loaf and take it to our hotel in Florida. We will stay in on Christmas Eve and have it along with a few Whole Food's items for dinner that night. It is nice when the hotel has a frig!

I'm glad you liked the post...I've never posted actual "writing" and I don't intend to switch from being a "mom" poster...but, it seemed like a good time to share that one. Thanks for the kind words.

You have one awesome daughter. I bet some of her artistic talent comes from you. The window treatments and the chairs are a thing of beauty. I know all the family will enjoy. Ginger
