Still working on the office and I probably will be for quite awhile. But I am having a great time in the process!
We have lived in our house for almost 4 years. Our house was a foreclosure and needed a lot of love when we moved in. The office had two Pepto Bismol Pink walls. At the time I thought the best solution was to paint the pink walls red. And it stayed that way for quite some time.
I have painted and decorated every room and am now going back and starting over. I have mentioned before about my design shift. I feel like I have gone from dark, bold, Tuscany to now bright, light and fresh. Shelley from the House of Smiths has been my inspiration.
So the next step to the office redecorating was a window treatment.
So after buying some burlap (surprised at how inexpensive burlap it) and plain white cotton material, I got to work. First, I measured the board and cut the burlap long enough to wrap around both sides. I then cut the white material into 3″ strips.
I then ran the strips through my sewing machine to ruffle them. I used the highest sitch length my machine has at 5.0 and set the tension as tight as it could go at 9. This spit the ruffles right out the back.
I then sewed three ruffles onto the burlap.
