Project # 2 for Guest Room


Today I made a new roman shade for the guest/music room. I bought about 3 or 4 yds of Trina Turk, Sunglasses print, by Schumacher at Debois Textiles in Baltimore.  You can read about that adventure here.  Part of it was stained so I improvised and added two 8" bands of white to "make it work", Tim Gunn Style. I really wanted to brighten the room up with yellow and white so it ended up being a good thing.
Next project is a white headboard for the bed and some artwork. I think I'll be channeling David Bromstead for that one.

Love the white bands, Tammy! You may have needed to do it, but I love how it incorporates a second color and adds interest to a window treatment.

I wish I had your talent. It would be so nice to whip up a Roman blind in a day. I love the bright fabric you chose for the space.

Tammy, what a lively shade of yellow this is! Great choice! Reminds me of sunshine... guess that works well with the name of the fabric print, right? :)
