Errr CURTAINS! I’ve been having such an issue trying to decide on dining room curtains. Since I got new chairs I thought my old curtains didn’t go anymore, the competing patterns were really bothering me. First I bought some plain red panels to try to get more of my red in the room (I’m trying to make each room downstairs flow by putting red in each room) but that looked awful. Then I tried some white tie up shades I had. That didn’t work either so I tried tea staining the fabric. They came out good but still didn’t work. So I decided to make some. I went to Joann’s and looked through pattern books to pick out ones I liked and found some fabric that would coordinate well with the pattern on my new chairs. The pattern also matches a lampshade I have in the room so it all ties together. This is how the turned out…


I like them but I need more curtain for the dining room, a valance just doesn’t cut it. So finally I found these panels at Big Lots for $12 a pair and I’m happy.


I’m going to be changing the shade of the walls soon so the curtains will look even better.



  1. Hi Michelle,
    Love the valance you made. Very pretty and very classy looking. I need to get busy and make some for my bedroom as well. Maybe soon.
    Hope you are doing well.
    Blessings, Nellie
